Antisyphon

A

Training I just finished the 4 day course titled Active Defense & Cyber Deception through Antisyphon, and it was excellent! This was one of the Pay What You Can classes that they offer, which made it affordable for me as a noob. The class did start to get a bit over my head, but that does not mean it was not super valuable. I now know what I don’t know. All the reading I have done, all...

Fun With VM’s

The need for a VM This week I am taking the Active Defense & Cyber Deception class with John Strand and in preparation for the class I followed this guide. Mac One of the steps is to install VMWare. So I try this on my Macbook. It’s an M1, and I forgot when I was downloading to make sure to grab the right download. That failed because I have the M1 chip. I grabbed the right one, but it...

So far it’s been very, very basic, but I hear the difficulty is going to be increased as the month proceeds. There are prizes for completing the challenges...

C and my Dad

C

C++ This week as I am going through the Jr. Penetration Tester course on INE, we are covering programming in C++. This is leading up to a C++-assisted exploitation, the next section is much the same but using Python. Oh man, I am reminded of why I never got deep into C, despite my father having years and years of experience with it. It’s not C, it’s C++, but going through this course...

TIL: Injection

T

Today I Learned: I studied for over 10 hours today! I learned quite a bit, as well as a lot of review. One of the most fun things I learned at HackTheBox was this: Using Burp Suite and the repeater (as one method, you could also use cURL, etc.) you can send the following: username=admin&password[$ge]=0 Along with changing the content type to: application/x-www-form-urlencoded to attempt...
