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 setup 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 and right now you can get a free copy of their Penetration Testing Student course for signing up. I think that ends on May 1st.
