Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) v8: Hacking Web Servers

This course is included in the Everything IT Self-Paced training package.


When an organization’s web servers are attacked, valuable information can be exposed. A web server attack may include data theft, or web site defacement, but can also pose threats to other servers or services. In this course we look at how hackers attack web servers, the tools they use, and the countermeasures you can implement to protect the organization. This course is one of a series of courses which can used in preparation for the Certified Ethical Hacker v8, 312-50, exam. The course has been developed in partnership with EC-Council and is based on their Ethical Hacking and Countermeasures V8 course materials and labs.
