Thanks to Kev and Oyle for the replies and tips.
I went through my training last year and was planning to do the exams ever since. I have done through the Books and and played around with the Auditor CD and PHLAK CDs. And I am going through them again now.
Well our training was nothing like what Fenris wrote. This was a more relaxed (loose ?
) training and there was nothing called Lab classes. We didn’t even have Linux box. We got the internet connection to the training room only on the second or third day. But the guy who did the training really knew his stuff. So nothing much to hack we hacked in to the training institutes file server using a buffer overflow attack. I must say the institutes guys were surprised
. But it was harmless fun and the institute got a free penetration testing job for free. So u gus are lucky to go through such a thorough exam preparation boot camp.
Anyway I have decided to do the exam next week ( actually was planning to do it last weekend but was stuck with office work). And also my exam voucher will be expiring soon
I learned some thing new today . URL De-obfuscation !! first time I heard that word. But I now I realise this refers to decoding encoded URLs. Please correct me if I am wrong.
I thought only hex encoded URLs were tested at the exams. Even that, how do you decode a hex URL without a tool ? This I don’t know. What things would I be expected to know in URL De-obfuscation for the test ?
If I manage to do the exam and pass (So far I have never failed a exam but always a first time), I will definitely put comments at the forum
