In Detail

We are in an era where cyber security plays an important part and the race between attackers and defenders is tremendously growing. Companies are heavily investing to protect their data. Pentesting and privilege escalation tests prove to be a vital step to eradicate or lower down the vulnerabilities within a system, network, or application to detect weaknesses that an attacker could exploit.

Throughout the course, we’ll solve a number of vulnerable machines on VulnHub, TryHackMe, and HackTheBox along with the other platforms. The topic of privilege escalation will be thoroughly explained, which provides the best tools to pass a certification such as OSCP. Furthermore, we will not only focus on Linux machines but Windows machines as well.

Important topics that will be covered are as follows:

Advanced Linux
