So I started getting back into the swing of things by working on the first three Kioptrix machines off of VulnHub. These went well. I was able to root them with little struggle. I felt great!!
So, I went over to HackThe box and found my friend Try Harder! I’ve started working on SwagShop and while I am making progress it is definitely back to the slow grind that I am familiar with in the PWK lab. But it’s okay. I’m hoping that I will be able to root this box tomorrow and keep making some progress.
I am also having some mixed feelings about spending more time in the PWK lab. I’m just not sure that’s what I need. For now I’m going to keep working on all of the available resources that I have and also keep gathering more information to build my OSCP “cheat sheet” of various websites that can come in handy.
I’ve decided to keep a running total of rooted boxes along the way this time around. I am starting my counters at zero for now and adding the boxes that I root this time around to my list. Hopefully between my counters and this blog I can keep myself focused.
