Hi everyone.
I have booked my OSCP and I am starting on the 26th of Feb. Looking forward to it. I am developer transitioning into a security role, I have done a lot of varied things in IT in the past, networking, system admin, database admin etc. I also enjoy
I am spending the next two weeks going though some vulnhub machines and playing around with some of the exploits on exploitdb. I have booked 90 days of lab access, I will try and keep you all posted about my progress as I go along.
Thanks
Pete

    Good luck to both of you. I'm sure you'll love the labs as much as everybody else who's done it before!

    Quick update, 7 days in and rooted 9 boxes. I am really loving the lab environment.

    Well three weeks later and I am up to 33 machines rooted, and 4 low priv shells still to escalate.
    Pain and Gh0st are done, but still need to get humble and sufferance.

    Awesome work! Definitely sounds like you are on track for an attempt at the exam. With the pace you've gone at, I would recommend testing on day 60 as it would leave you with 30 days to keep pounding away at practicing in the lab environment and attempt again if need be. I believe the exam retake is only $60.

    Thanks for the comment JojoCal19 I remember reading your OSCP thread. I think I will schedule for 60 days. I got Humble this week and am up to 42 machines done.
    I also managed to extend the Ktrap0d exploit to allow passing in a pid to escalate which has proved really useful.

    How are you getting on? I am looking to start within the next one month.
