As part of IronGeek’s “Hacking Illustrated Series”, this tutorial is a video (by Dosk3n).  Go watch it over at IronGeek (pro tip – click the article title).  There’s even a download link so you can watch it at your leisure over and over again.

Big ups to IronGeek and DosK3n on the tutorial and the sweet sweet “turn their own weapons against them” intro.

Enjoy.
