TROJAN HORSE SECURITY IS TEACHING THESE CONCEPTS FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. WE DO NOT CONDONE ILLEGAL HACKING. TROJAN HORSE SECURITY CONSULTANTS ARE HIRED AS ETHICAL HACKERS AT THE REQUEST OF ORGANIZATIONS WITH PERMISSION TO HACK THEIR NETWORKS AND SYSTEMS.
When learning about a target, the more we can learn about it without 'touching' their systems the better. Every time we connect with a target's system it is likely logged, even if we are only browsing the web page like a standard user.
Netcraft's website allows us to find out information about our target and understand information such as what software they are using and it's version.
Try going there now and entering the URL of your target organization: http://toolbar.netcraft.com/site_report?url=
