Today marks day 8 of TryHackMe’s Advent of Cyber challenge. So far the challenges have covered topics from using cookies to bypass authentication, directory enumeration, brute forcing accounts, SQL injection and cross site scripting. They’ve also covered utilities such as BurpSuite, gobuster, nmap and sqlmap.

I’ve found taking part in the challenge to be extremely useful, since each day builds from the last. Even better, where a task has been with something that I’m familiar with I’ve still found something new to learn. I await tomorrow’s task with baited breath.
