I've come to you in a time of perpetual frustration; the way I go about researching vulnerabilities is inefficient, and the way I gain footholds is nonexistent needs improvement.
I'd like to get a good understanding of what to do. MSFConsole can get me nowhere real quick and don't like relying on others for hints and nudges. Is there any advice or resource short of do more boxes or git gud that you believe will help me? Any books that cover exploit development or research methods in regards to service vulnerabilities. I really appreciate your help in advance, and I look forward to working with you all.
