I’ve been working with Ansible a lot recently and consequently also been reading about it. There are some things I’ve found that are incredibly useful or just interesting. In this series I’ll quickly go over something I learned and give examples of where it may be help.
I “received” my Hack The Box invite code over the summer but I never had time to get into it. Recently I decided to see what this whole pen-testing thing was about and put in some work to try and hack a box. I went for Jerry because it had a difficulty of 2.9/10 and had over 10,000 system and user owns (solves).
I used urlscan.io a lot this summer at my internship with a SOC. Every time I used it I wondered how it worked and if I could build something similar. The week after my internship ended I created HTTP-Info as my attempt to gather as much information about a website as I could.
This year I moved into a new apartment and had to get a TV for the living room. I ultimately got this TCL Roku TV which my journey of getting is a whole nother story. I powered it on, selected my language and country, then it was time to configure the network connection. Shoot.
This summer I want to do more botnet analysis. I’ve done some before with my rootonyour.webcam SSH log analysis sensor and server projects. This really only included geolocation and linked to Shodan information on running services. Cowrie is a medium interaction honeypot that can log login credentials and command execution and also capture downloaded files. I don’t prioritize availability with my self-hosted servers, so I’d rather put everything in the cloud.
