Kinectasploit: Hack Tools Meet Kinect 33

mask.of.sanity writes "While Hollywood often fails to portray hacking, one researcher has made the art of exploitation look more like the big screen. Kinectasploit is hacking in the form of a first-person shooter that melds Microsoft's Kinect controls with 20 hacking tools including Metasploit, Snort, Nessus, John the Ripper and Ettercap. The work in progress can be downloaded from github."

      Real "hackers" with experience in network probing, intrusion and forensics also don't need a video game to use tools like nmap and ettercap. This is just a neat toy that provides a layer of visual abstraction to help people better understand the tools that are employed during a (legal) pentest, not a suite of security tools for 00b3r-31337 bl4khA7 PwNl0rDz to expedite their trips to prison.

      It's the very definition of 'hacking' away at something; whatever floats your boat. I can assure you that there's much, much more software out there under the guise of something 'useful' that is definitely a waste of people's time. Who cares.
