      Well it’s official guys – I received an e-mail this morning confirming me that I successfully received my OSCP Certification. I’m super excited and finally have something to throw in my signature. I may do a review similar to Ryan Linn’s. He covered a good review of the material that’s in the course and my opinion is very similar. I may even just give my opinion of the newly added sections (Like the linux buffer overflow exploitation section & updates web application attack section). I’ll keep everyone posted.

      Congratulations!!!

      You started off with what sounds to be probably one of the hardest certifications out there…

      Congrats, xXxKrisxXx. 😉
      I’d certainly like to hear more about the newly added sections you mentioned.

      Congrats! Looking forward to the review. It’s really hard to believe that OSCP is someone’s first certificate. You must have some strong ninja skills:)

      Thanks guys. @Equix3n-  My ninja skills aren’t too bad. I picked up on a large amount of info in the course and I’ve been using BackTrack since 2007 pretty actively. The exam was still rough. I’ll have something for you guys coming soon, making a post about it on my site right now.

      I meant that you must’ve had strong ninja skills prior to taking the course ;D (or whatever the grammar is. English isn’t my primary language)

      Congratulations xXxKrisxXx !

      I guess I am the next one taking the certification challenge in a couple of weeks. Was the exam tougher than the lab machines?

      @h1t m0nk3y – Kind’ve and kind’ve not. I’ve penetrated 1 or 2 lab machines that were harder but there were also machines I had little chance of breaking. I finished the write-up on the 2 sections and my experience with the exam and had it published here. Thanks again guys. Going through the eLearnSecurity course right now I may do a write-up about how they compare in the later future.

      I just read your review. Excellent writeup!
      I might do a similar review for eLeransecurity too.

      xXxKrisxXx ,

      You wrote a very good review of the course.

      Especially, I didn’t know about:

      The offsec guys have written scripts that automate tasks that everyday users would do (like browse to pages, check e-mails, etc) and your able to pull off cleverly crafted client-side attacks.

      I am even more motivated now! Thanks!  ;D

      I majorly failed the exam lol… got the scheduled time at a bad hour (cause i’m in a different time limit), couldn’t get my shellcode to work on an exploit and created and managed to exploit a machine i wasn’t supposed to with metasploit.Fun and games. Looking forward to a resit after more revision

      I’m completing the registration process myself just now. Starting the 27th!

      @N3WB134444 – What do you mean by this?

      managed to exploit a machine i wasn’t supposed to with metasploit

      Guessing he hit a machine that was outside the scope / intended subnet.  Just like in the class exercises, where there are given subnets to attack, yet other machines ARE available and reachable from the attacking pc.

      Unfortunately there are only certain machine you can target with metasploit. I will say no more

      Congratulations!  OSCP is a great cert to have and it shows that you really learned something in getting to and through the exam!
