Hi, just my feedback about the mdsec lab.
As i’ve bought the book 3 month ago i’ve decided for this new year to buy 5 hours of training lab.
Right now i’ve spent only two hours in the lab and i have done the 3 first modules, Mapping the Application, Using Automation and Bypassing Client Side Controls.
You have to read the book first because there is no explanation in the lab, only exercises, exercises and exercises…
One negative point is that there is no answer so if you don’t find how to do it then you can’t have any advices from the lab but on the other hand it makes you working harder to find the solution.
The 3 modules i’ve done aren’t so difficult and you can find a lot of advices in the WAHH, i don’t know if it’s gonna be the same thing for the other one.
Welcome and Happy New Year AMP !
You’ll find a lot of threads here about “where to start”.
By the way it depends also on your skills, maybe you have some knowledge in programmation (C, python..), linux skills ?
Christmas Hacking is popular, i think Kevin Mitnick hacked Tsutomu Shimomura’s computers in San Diego on Christmas Day 1994. You can find the description of the attack here : http://www.gulker.com/ra/hack/tsattack.html
