Introduction Around a month ago, I was looking for my next “hacking” certification. Up to this point, I’ve achieved the CEH, OSCP, OSWP, and Pentest+ (beta), in that order. I was specifically looking for web application, reverse engineering, and advanced penetration testing certifications that were relatively up to date as I felt that I needed
Introduction: This week’s retiring machine is Bounty, which is a beginner-friendly box that can still teach a few new tricks. Bounty is rated 4.8/10, which I feel is pretty appropriate given the overall ease of the machine. In this walkthrough, we’ll do a little bit of dirbusting, learn a nifty trick to gain remote code

Fighter caused me hours of lost sleep.
Introduction: With Sunday’s retirement today, I finally get to write my first Hack The Box write-up. I cannot tell you how exciting that is, but Borat can: Sunday was a bit on the easier side, but in the end, taught me a new tricks I had never seen before. The box reminded me of my

Introduction: Hello! I’m writing this article to share my experiences in finding my first job in cyber security. More specifically, my first job in penetration testing. I wanted to share my experiences in hopes of motivating others who want to come into the cyber security field or already are applying to jobs in the field,
