Finally got OSEP in the bag. This course was eye opening to me and helped me grow immensely as a professional. If you are just coming out of a successful OSCP exam, i recommend that you plan for and commit to take this exam as well, because it separates the men from the boys. Here’s a knowledge dump of everything that went through my head before and during this exam.

I’ve never done any reverse engineering, mobile pentesting or game hacking. But this blogpost combines all three and tells the story of how I reverse engineered my childhood mobile game Spider-Man Unlimited, found a secret cheat menu and wrote a custom script to exploit it, as well as several other application controls, including the game asset compression.

11 minute read

This week I passed the Certified Red Team Operator (CRTO) exam by RastaMouse from ZeroPointSecurity. Overall, this was a great follow-up to OSCP, because it took my Active Directory knowledge further and allowed me to practice with a real C2. It was well worth the money and every part of it was incredibly enjoyable. I highly recommend this course and exam to anyone interested in learning the fundamentals of red teaming and I’m publishing this to share my impressions and experiences with it.

My OSCP journey is finally over and I have a lot of people to thank for inspiring me to finish it. Most of all I have Dylan to thank. I highly recommend you check out his blog and see his own journey. This article is intended to have all the information about OSCP that I wish I had when I first started studying for it. I’ve tried a large number of popular study materials and I review each one of them here, as well as share miscellaneous tips and opinions about the exam.

How to Start a CPTC Team

Collegiate Penetration Testing Competition is an amazing opportunity to experience penetration testing in its entirety, and I highly encourage participating to see if offensive security is a career for you. You need a team to participate in CPTC and this blogpost is meant to be a guide for schools that don’t have one yet, or are trying to revive one for next season. Last year my entire team from Cal Poly Pomona graduated, so I had to start from scratch and ended up building a team that won gold both internationally and in our own region. I want to share my leadership experience with others and hopefully inspire more people to participate in this competition.
