Special study group for getting into web security! Similar to the #AdventOfCode series we did in December we’ll use this time to get into security a bit more! No worries if you missed some sessions, the days can be done independently from each other – and NO prior knowledge is required, we are here to learn together!
In this session we will do day 7 and 8 of the #AdventOfCyber (https://www.tryhackme.com/room/adventofcyber2). Day 7 focuses on TCP and packet sniffing and day 8 on port scanning – with these tools we’ll do our first steps in the network security area.
If you want to join the security session, you should install Oracle Virtual Box(https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Download_Old_Builds_6_0), download a Kali Linux image for VirtualBox (https://www.offensive-security.com/kali-linux-vm-vmware-virtualbox-image-download/#1572305786534-030ce714-cc3b) and enable Virtualisation in your bios settings.
If you can’t manage to do that, no worries there is an in-browser solution you can use as well. The only thing you need to have is a TryHackMe account.
