Well, in my downtime between certifications I decided it was time to start doing something, so I figured I'd do some boot2roots and other similar challenges/games.
The first one I decided to do a walkthrough for was Tr0ll v1 hosted on VulnHub as it was allegedly not too difficult, and I could use some trolling in my life.
So, I downloaded the VM, spun up Kali, and got to work.
First things first, I ran netdiscover to find out where the troll was hiding.
So, I was perusing the internet for some side project ideas, and one that stuck out to me as interesting/useful as well as not too difficult was a file integrity checker.
The idea involved checking the hash of a known, good .bashrc file and comparing it against the current one on the system. From there e-mail alerts could be sent, the file could be reverted, etc.
Well, I know it's been awhile, but I wanted to write-up an eCPPT Review before moving on to other stuff.
This course and exam was definitely the hardest security certification I had taken to date, but it was well worth it.
