My post revolves around rule number 6.
6 Dont use your production PC to connect to HTB Network
We strongly recommend not to use your production PC to connect to the >HTB Network. Build a VM or physical system just for this purpose. HTB >Network is filled with security enthusiasts that have the skills and toolsets >to hack systems and no matter how hard we try to secure you, we are likely >to fail :P We do not hold any responsibility for any damage, theft or loss of >personal data although in such event, we will cooperate fully with the >authorities.
There have been posts discussing what precautions you can take, however I would like to know:
How likely is the event of beeing hacked by another member
The reason I am asking this is because HTB is also made for beginners, not only professionals. Beginners, like me, may not know how risky HTB may be.
Also I find it wierd that, if something like this can happen, HTB provides so few information. Wouldn't the possibillity of a hack through HTB be a major threat that shoul be warned about more, not only in rule number 6?
