Week 6

Week 6

This week was pretty typical and I was able to get root on 3 machines including two Windows based ones. I think that taking time to research the different services that are running and gaining an understanding of what each does is important before diving in and wasting a bunch of time. Also, on one box, it seemed like nothing was open besides IIS but couldn’t find any files or directories. This was a great reminder to not use Nmap only for port scanning, but also the vulnerability scanning NSE scripts included.
