                                    Introduction

                                    WhatWeb can be used stealthy and fast to determine what technologies are used on a particular website or web application. This process called fingerprinting can tell a lot about how it was build and possible weaknesses it might have. The tool can be used in different levels, from stealthy to very aggressive. This last one is useful in penetration tests or during development.

                                      Introduction

                                      Since 1992, Samba provides file and print services based on the server message block (SMB) protocol. This protocol was released by Microsoft as part of the open specifications.

                                      Samba helps with interoperability between systems running Microsoft Windows and those running one of the flavor of Unix like Linux. The toolkit allows systems to become part of the Active Directory environment and join a domain controller or domain member.
