  • In the UK, I am not sure it's necessary for clearance but it's possible they may follow US standards, I will look into that. These certs are coupled with 10+ years from sysadmin to lead engineering roles, I have a CCENT/ICND-1 but didn't bother wit…

  • The best advice I can give is if you aren't hitting user or root on a box within 2 hours, move on to another box - including the buffer overflow. Easy to keep making the same mistake, go to something else and it might become clearer after, I spent 2…
  • @TazWake - the problem is my work history although very technical doesn't cover CISSP requirements, although I could maybe argue 2 or 3 years of it across a couple of the areas just about. CISSP associate I could go for but it is often CISSP or CEH…
  • @Ryan412 - the amount of blue roles that ask for is it why it is here on CV sift... I guess you haven't looked at any roles recently? Not stating it's right or good that it's on the requirements of most roles, but here (UK at least), it's commonly a…
  • EC-Council are charging me $2000.00, you need to pay for one of the two course types - I am not sure I would pass the experience check they do. I will check out CompTIA.
  • It would be me funding it, from what I can see it's about $2000.00. I am 'experienced', 10+ years in industry, just want to make sure I have both sides of the security spectrum. To be honest. the goal is contracting and what helps in a CV sift - I k…
  • They can reset it totally so you can make a new password if you don't remember what you set, it shouldn't have been the same password as your account.

  • Just jump in, if you get 90 days it's definitely enough time as the resources walk you through it, you then practice them on labs.
  • I did the eJPT and eCPPTv2 very recently with pretty much HTB, CyberSecurityChallenge and some other CTFs as my 'cyber' experience... and 10+ years experience in Software/Tech. eCPPTv2 was a really good exam. I did the OSCP exam on Saturday and Sun…
  • I can kind of understand what is being said with regards to OSCP being rookie level as I am part way through it (around 25 boxes down, 41 days of 60 left). The content is basic/simplified, the emphasis is on the labs and using those basics and appl…
  • Is the insect M****s the right way here? I know I can upload but I don't know if this is configured to disk or database. The x*l method doesn't appear to be valid on the version running. So far a really engaging box!

  • You can't list running processes?

  • If you do standard enumeration you might see something that is running that'll catch your eye.
    in Heist Comment by da1y August 2019
  • Fun box, helped me to get some much needed enumeration practice on Windows :-)
    in Heist Comment by da1y August 2019
  • I used r**c****t for that and manually enumerated after finding some known users, probably not the most elegant way, probably missing a tool that auto does it!
    in Heist Comment by da1y August 2019
  • Ugh... not sure you can blame headaches just on enumeration, it's a bit sneaky beaky and it is a bit of a dance between things you can login to.

  • The first step is guessing a directory, the box name hints this as does some of the text on the index page. From here you should be able to make some progress (again without dirb).

  • @raven37 - you need to access another service with the decrypted password for the user then get user.txt contents from desktop. Fun box, not sure any need for a WIndows machine on this - managed to do it all from Kali easily.

  • Easy to over complicate this one! Once you get the foothold it should be plain sailing... believe what the enumeration tools tell you and understand the basics of checking what you can do with the current user and how you might access the flag with …

  • I quite liked user, I learned a few new words :-). Root was believable... kinda. Good box.
    in Haystack Comment by da1y July 2019
  • User was a slog, really well put together and somewhat realistic. Once you get your foothold, you may need to alter something you have in front of you to get more... bit vague but it’ll make sense when you do it 😂. Root is kind of simple once you c…

  • At same point... tested locally with that portion of code and can get a couple methods working, trying to identify why not on the server.
