Anyone doing the PENTESIT Lab?

Just wanted to see whether anyone was trying their hand at the new penetration testing lab on

I've had a quick look and thought it could be interesting, but haven't had the chance to sit down and look at it properly.

    Looks interesting.

    It is your personal IPS to stop the attack.

    Well, decided to give it a go. One of the guys at work is also going to attempt it so we can bounce ideas off one another. I shall let you know how I get on :)

    Also, feel free to PM me if anyone else decides to have a shot.

    Let me know how you get on! I'm going to sit down and have a crack at it tonight. Not very confident with Web application pen testing so we shall see!

    It looks like you will use a VPN. You register using your email and I presume you are sent directions on how to proceed. It also looks like there are different labs that you can attempt to "hack".

    You can spin up a Kali disco and use BurbSuite. Although it is new to you, you may enjoy it. This depends on your background. As a pen tester you will need to learn some programming languages.

    I may a take a look at the site this weekend.

    Good Luck!

    As a security pro I naturally distrust any site on the .ru domain but this sounds like it might be worth looking into.

    Russia also has a RUCTFe which is nice... This year was a little messed up because the VPN/ architecture was not working. The other years it was real fun to learn a great deal.

    So long as you sign up with the same username and password you use across all your banking and tax refund websites you should be fine.....right? icon_thumright.gif

    Wait.. You didn't do that?.. Haha :p.

    If anyone wants to follow my progress I'm going to be posting on my blog about it (which you can find on my profile here).
