@RealTryHackMe #AdventOfCyber Series: Challenge 3 – Christmas Blackout

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 third challenge, we’re presented with a scenario where there’s a Christmas blackout due to the email system and McSysAdmin losing access to their admin panel thanks to the Grinch nefarious activities! In this challenge we learn about content discovery. Content discovery is the process of looking for un-listed or un-related content online. This content is useful as it can be passwords, configuration files, etc. which can help us log into a website. Finally, we learn about default credentials and how it can help us gain access to a website.

Can we use the topics above to repair the email system and McSysAdmin to save Christmas?
