I’m studying IT systems in a small school and we’ve started using Kali Linux to do various things.
Anyway boredom got the best of me and I nikto’d a random site on the smaller side, without really knowing the repercussions (I do now).
Here’s my questions:
1. Probability that the sysadmin on the receiving end will report something to the school’s ISP and I will get in trouble. I know this probably depends on the sysadmin or website admin. Something did trigger off since I was asked for a captcha when I visited the site, but it wasn’t down.
2. I used Nikto for only a few minutes at most. Does that help my case?
I know I sound like a complete noob, but at least I would like to turn this into a learning experience.
