AWAE Now Available Anywhere, Anytime

Offensive Security

Our Advanced Web Attacks and Exploitation (AWAE) live training course has been one of the fastest-selling classes at various industry events for years. The Black Hat classes perennially sell out in a matter of minutes, and every year we’re snowed under by demand from security professionals wondering when we’ll offer it online. For this reason, today we’re excited to announce AWAE is now available online…

OSCP Cheating

Cheating Attempts and the OSCP

Offensive Security

Last week, an individual started to release solutions to certain challenges in the OSCP certification exam. This led to some discussion on Twitter and made it clear to us that there is a fair amount of misunderstanding about what’s on the exam, how we catch cheaters, how many people attempt to cheat, and what happens when they are discovered. In this post, we would like to shine some light on our certification process.

Offensive Security Appoints Ning Wang as CEO to Lead Organization’s Next Stage of Growth

Offensive Security

Today we all constantly read about data breaches that could have been prevented if the impacted organization had just done what they were supposed to do. The unfortunate reality is that cyberattacks are now a matter of ‘when’ and not ‘if’ for the average enterprise. Yet the landscape is changing and protecting your environment is actually getting more challenging not less.

Cyber adversaries are more organized and talented than ever, so an effective cyber defense now requires more than just following the right processes. Today’s enterprises need defenders who perform their jobs with an adversarial mindset. While this need is becoming more acute every day, we are also presently in the midst of an enormous cybersecurity skills shortage. These two forces are diametrically opposed and there is only one way toward resolution – practical security training.

This being the case, I couldn’t be happier to join Offensive Security as the company’s next CEO.

Proctoring OSCP Exams

Offensive Security Online Exam Proctoring

Offensive Security

When we started out with our online training courses over 12 years ago, we made hard choices about the nature of our courses and certifications. We went against the grain, against the common certification standards, and came up with a unique certification model in the field – “Hands-on, practical certification”. Twelve years later, these choices have paid off. The industry as a whole has realized that most of the multiple choice, technical certifications do not necessarily guarantee a candidate’s technical level…and for many in the offensive security field, the OSCP has turned into a golden industry standard. This has been wonderful for certification holders as they find themselves actively recruited by employers due to the fact that they have proven themselves as being able to stand up to the stress of a hard, 24-hour exam – and still deliver a quality report.

The Synology Improbability

Recently, my manager purchased a Synology NAS device for me to do some backups. Since quite a few people I know use this particular NAS (including myself now), I decided to do a quick audit on it before integrating it into my lab environment. In this blog post, I will cover two different vulnerabilities patched by Synology.

Hacking WPA Enterprise with Kali Linux

Penetration Testing

Admittedly, somewhat of a click-bait blog post title – but bear with us, it’s for a good reason. Lots of work goes on behind the scenes of Kali Linux, tools get updated every day and interesting new features are added constantly. Most of these tool updates and feature additions go unannounced, and are then discovered by inquisitive users – however this time, we had to make an exception.

A Decade of Exploit Database Data

Managing the Exploit Database is one of those ongoing tasks that ends up taking a significant amount of time and often, we don’t take the time to step back and look at the trends as they occur over time. Have there been more exploits over the years? Perhaps fewer? Is there a shift in platforms being targeted? Has the bar for exploits indeed been raised with the increase in more secure operating system protections?

What it means to be an OSCP reloaded

Offensive Security

In our recent blog post  “What it means to be an OSCP” we asked OSCPs to share their experience of what it means to have earned this certification and we received many tales of hardship and reward. Mike Benich sent in an entry that we felt very much captured the essence of the Offensive Security mentality; that the path to OSCP is challenging, stressful, and demanding, but the results leave you with much more than technological expertise.
