@RealTryHackMe #AdventOfCyber Series: Challenge 13 – Simply Having A Wonderful PCAP Time #TisTheSeasonForHacking

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 thirteenth challenge, the SOC team notice suspicious network activity after investigating the malware in Day 12 challenge. Santa’s SOC team needs to analyze the network traffic to see any malicious activity happening on the network.

The topics explored in this challenge are packet and packet analysis. The tool used is Wireshark which is an industry-standard tool for network protocol analysis and is used for traffic and packet investigations.

Can Santa’s SOC determine if there’s malicious activity on the network? Find out below!
