I one of the earliest books I read on security - The Basics of Hacking and Penetration Testing (978-0124116443); the author emphasized that you cannot use these Penetration Test Tools over the internet as some of the ISPs monitor the use of such tools and will block access to your internet if they feel you are using such tools.
If this is true - this is a gem of an advise. But the reason I am questioning this is because in no other book I read was this even casually mentioned. So my questions are,
- Is this advise correct? Will someone have his/her internet connection blocked for using pentesting tools over the internet (with authorization from the website owner)?
- Are there any workarounds - like running the remote pen test from say a cloud host?
