This Week’s Recap
- No roundup last week because I was traveling to San Diego for Wild West Hackin Fest. What a great conference.
- Got back from wild west hackin’ fest around 4AM. Took most of the day to just relax.
- Read through Parent PID Spoofing and Oh how we can keep whispering the syscalls
- Began the GSTRT material by watching the on demand lectures.
- Made this mindmap for how I study for SANS courses
- Finished the first section of GSTRT on demand videos.
- Finished creating my resume in LaTeX.
- Experimenting with a new system from tracking all the courses/training/learning I want to do.
- Added a new calendar just called training that has listed out all the training/learning I want to do (projecting about a month or so out).
- This includes everything from certs, masters program courses, and other ways of learning such as hack the box prolabs I want to do.
- The goal of this is not to study every day that is marked, but instead is (hopefully) something I can use to limit the amount of task switching I am doing. Currently I waste a lot of time switching from all my ongoing projects which leads to a lack of progress on all of them. For example, the situation that lead me to creating this training calendar was I noticed myself switching between: Looking at Offshore, PNPT Studying, GSTRT Studying, Looking at buying CRTO, all while working a full time job. This is not sustainable. Thus, pretty calendar:
- Decided to try out waking up early to get all my studying (for my masters program and just reading blogs, doing ctfs, etc ) out of the way BEFORE work. I realized that coming home from work and task switching between certs, masters, and other misc learning was not sustainable.
- Began the second section of GSTRT material titled “Defined Current State: Strategic Roadmap Development”
- While the GSTRT material is not the most riveting material, the case study discussions are very interesting.
- Finished the “Develop the Plan” section of the GSTRT
- Picked up an extended mag for my thinkpad by rooting 40 boxes with FMJ
- Discovered the SANS “Gold” program where you can write whitepapers and have them published. Might do this in the future.
- Finished the rest of the “Strategic Roadmap Development” section of GSTRT
- Indexed the first two books of GSTRT
- Did some final resume editing. Very happy to see the career progress I’ve made recently.
- Did a giveaway on twitter for 2 TCM Academy and 1 no starch press book.
- Released GTFOCheck which is a python script forked from t0thkr1s tool. This fork basically just allows you to check a list of binaries to see if they’re in gtfobins instead of checking one at a time.
- Published this blog :)
