After successfully hacking dozens of authorized Linux and Windows machines, I’ve been officially ranked as Hacker on Hack The Box (HTB). What an honor, seriously!
I can’t emphasize enough how amazing it is to have hands-on ethical hacking/pentesting experience on HTB. I’ve learned so much since I joined the platform in May — for example, how to get really good at using tools such as Burp Suite, Nmap, GoBuster, Dirbuster, Netcat, Metasploit, etc. I’m a pro at running Python, Bash, and Pearl exploits from the command line. And, when it comes to reverse shells, I can plant them even via cURL!
The next rank is Pro Hacker and I’m hoping to get there in 2022. I feel it’s important to keep practicing ethical hacking skills every single day. That’s how you become a great cybersecurity professional: practice, practice, practice. These are skills that if you don’t use them, you lose them.
