Hack The Box is an online platform used by InfoSec professionals and enthusiasts to test and advance penetration testing and cybersecurity skills. In this portion, your incredible club execs Nash and Cem will be walking you through the whole exploitation process from initial access to full compromise.

Many of the machines on HTB can be solved with some research and trial & error. However, do you really know whats going on under all the scripts and shells? For all the blue teamers and reverse engineers amongst you, good old Louai will be walking you through a more in-depth overview of the exploits used, and how to defend against them.

We hope you join us this THURSDAY for this spectacular ISSessions!
