@RealTryHackMe #AdventOfCyber Series: Challenge 1 – Save The Gifts #websecurity #infosec

Another day, another challenge…

In this post, we’re starting a new series the Advent of Cyber series that is hosted by TryHackMe. This is the third year of the Advent of Cyber where a challenge is released everyday leading to Christmas. In total there will be 25 challenges. In these challenges, we’re McSkidy an elf trying to save Christmas.

In our first challenge, we’re presented with a scenario where the Grinch is trying to destroy Christmas by possibly using an IDOR (Insecure Direct Object Reference) vulnerability. IDORs are a vulnerability where sensitive information can be accessed without the proper authorization. These types of vulnerabilities can be found in real world applications and are good test cases for bug bounties… *hint, hint*

Can we save Christmas by solving the first challenge by stopping the grinch?

Well… click the below video to find out!
