EVM.ova Security Assessment: a Penetration Testing and Vulnerability Analysis Project

EasyChair Preprint no. 12597

6 pagesDate: March 19, 2024


This research paper presents comprehensive vulnerability assessment and penetration testing of the EVM.ova virtual machine. The assessment aims to identify potential security vulnerabilities and demonstrate the exploitation techniques to gain unauthorized access. The findings reveal critical vulnerabilities that expose the target system to risks such as brute-force attacks, remote code execution, and unauthorized access to sensitive data. The paper provides a detailed account of the penetration testing process; including network discovery, vulnerability scanning, exploitation using Metasploit, and postexploitation activities. Additionally, it offers recommendations for mitigating the identified vulnerabilities and strengthening the overall security posture of the system.

Keyphrases: Exploitation, Metasploit, penetration testing, vulnerability assessment
