anyone currently busy with OSCP? looking for study buddies!

bluesquirrelbluesquirrel Member Posts: 43 ■■□□□□□□□□
Hi All,

I have started since few days the OSCP course but feeling a bit lost with few stuff (for example, how to use exploits without metasploit or getting low privilege escalations). So far, I have rooted only Alice but using metasploit (shame on me icon_sad.gif ).

If there is someone in this forum currently attending the OSCP course too, it would be nice to get in contact so to share knowledge only on the best techniques to use (not on how to root the Lab machines!).

Cheers,
BlueS

    Hi All,

    sorry for delay in replying, but got sick for few days.

    @puttar
    no I have not yet finished all the exercises ... currently stuck with the Buffer Overflow ... however, as my company has paid for limited number of lab days, I am trying to do in parallel exercises and enumerating lab environments.

    @jarrid
    will contact you shortly via pm!

    Hi All,

    very sorry for the delay in replying to this thread but I am sick since few weeks icon_sad.gif and therefore have not been very active on the forum.

    How is it going with your study? have you finished all the exercises?

    I have received response from other two persons from the forum which are interested in a study group. One is based in US, the other one dont know.

    I am in UK. Where are you guys based?

    Cheers,
    Blue

    @jarred:
    I cannot send you a private email as you have disabled to receive private messages. Let me know if you are still interested

    @bluesquirrel no worries. I am based in US and have finished with the book/exercises. I will see about setting up a Discord channel tonight and post the info here.
  • KEE_ACEKEE_ACE Registered Users Posts: 4 ■□□□□□□□□□
    I would like to be on board as well. I start next week. PM me or post here. I cannot send out PMs.

    Hey guys,

    Looking to start my official OSCP in a few weeks (waiting for work to approve paying for it). Starting to do readings and videos on my own in the meantime. Would love to be a part of the study group.

    I have created a Discord server. Here is the link: https://discord.gg/AQwaeGf

    Anyone is free to join and chat about their progress or difficulties but we want to make sure that spoilers are kept secret. As I'm sure you can all agree you will never learn anything as well as when you can figure it out yourself, or do it yourself.

    edit: changed the link to one that wont expire

    Hi rex0r,

    when I click on your link I get the error "The instant invite is invalid or has expired."
  • rex0rrex0r Member Posts: 31 ■■□□□□□□□□
    @bluesquirrel I sent you a pm.

    Here is the new link, set to never expire https://discord.gg/AQwaeGf
  • bluesquirrelbluesquirrel Member Posts: 43 ■■□□□□□□□□
    Hi rex0r,

    I joined discord using your above link (the never expiring one). Many thanks for setting up this!

    considering that we are based in different timezones, perhaps it could be helpful to decide on which day& time of the week to meet ... what do you guys think?

    As mentioned earlier, I am based in UK ... anyone else based in Europe?
    for the guys based in US: could you please share your timezone (Pacific, Mountain, Central, Eastern)?

    Cheers,
    Blue

    I'm not allowed to say what my previous occupation was, but let's just say it rhymes with architect.

    I speak only for myself, but everyone currently attending the PWK course is welcome :)
  • lugerluger Member Posts: 52 ■□□□□□□□□□

    Yes please do send me the link. Its exactly 4:03pm over here so it will be around 11pm my time when you send the link but will most probably still be online as im reading Georgia Weidmans' book at the moment......fantastic resource!

    Yes that is a book I would HIGHLY recommend. She also has a course on cybrary.it that follows everything in the book.
