Another day, another challenge…
In this post, we’re starting a new series, the Advent of Cyber, hosted by TryHackMe. This is the fourth year of the Advent of Cyber, where a challenge is released every day leading to Christmas. There will be 25 challenges; we’re McSkidy, an elf trying to save Christmas.
In our fourth challenge, elf Recon McRed is scanning the server qa.santagift.shop which is used to add and delete gifts from Santa website. Recon McRed wants to determine how the server was compromised.
The topics explored in this challenge are the different types of scanning – passive and active, networking, port, vulnerability. Along with scanning tools such as nmap (network mapper) and Nikto.
Can Recon McRed figure out how the qa.santagift.shop was compromised? Find out below!
