This will be Day 3 of my OSCP Preparation. The mind-map linked in the previous post is what I’m still working on, but I just want to first take a moment out of discussing purely hacking to talk about how humbled I am. Veteran Security concluded their board elections a little over a week ago, and on June 1st, 2020, I took over as the Board Chair for the company. It’s an amazing organization owned and run by veterans for veterans transitioning into cyber security. We have some pretty awesome things planned, but that’s nothing compared to what the group has already done for so many, myself included. More than simply providing resources and guides to transition, Veteran Security (VetSec, Inc.) provides a much needed community – a place for veterans to discuss the issues that face our community and be there for one another.
Now then, Day 3 of OSCP. I have completed OverTheWire: Bandit through Level 23, and I have completed Wave 1 of the Zero to Hero blog for TryHackMe. Both platforms have been great for solidifying basic Linux command knowledge, establishing a solid methodology, and exposing me to many different vulnerabilities present in both Linux and Windows.
Much of what I’ve been done has been walkthrough style so far. I anticipate around next week (Day 10 OSCP or so) I will move into the lists of machines provided by TJ-Null and start working on VulnHub and HackTheBox machines. This is where it’ll get real.
I continue to make videos for my YouTube Channel, like this walkthrough of LazyAdmin on TryHackMe, and I continue to stream daily. This has been a great way for me to reinforce the knowledge I’ve gained by doing the same box a couple times.
Anyways, if you like following and learning along with me, keep checking out my YouTube and my Twitch and I’ll see you there!
