@RealTryHackMe #AdventOfCyber Series: Challenge 21 – Have Yourself A Merry Little Webcam #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 twenty first challenge, we’re tasked with determining if the web camera on our device has any vulnerabilities. The elves are confident there are no vulnerabilities, but we’ll check to see if there are any off-the-shelf exploits are available to exploit the device.

The topics explored in this challenge are learning what are IoT (Internet of Things), and their (potential security vulnerabilities). The different protocols surrounding IoT. Finally, understanding the publish/subscribe model that is used for IoT.

Can we help Santa find the weaknesses on the web server before the bad guys? Find out below!
