My first box on HTB is retiring

Bashed is retiring, its bittersweet

In case you missed it, Bashed is retiring Sunday on Hack the Box. It is the first box that I got user and privileged user on, but I haven’t gotten root yet. I have a write-up just waiting for it to retire because they do not allow write-ups for active boxes. I hope to try again for root today or tomorrow, and I might not get it in time. I’m alright with that because I did my best and got further on this box than any previously. I’ll keep trying when I can and if I have to move on to another box. Poison is another easy rated box, so I’ll probably move to that one next week. Hack the box is a great learning tool because it offers many challenges for new and experienced hackers.

A new ethical hacking forum started back up yesterday.

The Ethical Hacker Network is a community set up for ethical hackers. There is an online magazine, a forum, a calendar with conferences for quick reference, hacking challenge links, and book reviews. It is owned by the same company that owns eLearnSecurity.

Here are the bashed user and root write-ups.
