What we're about

Anyone interested in cybersecurity and penetration testing should join this group. Meet other infosec enthusiasts, discuss, exchange knowledge and - of course, hack machines from Hack The Box in a private lab. Meetings will be online-only during COVID-19 and hosted on the Hack South Discord server.

Enjoy! 😉

0x11 - "Burp-ing" with more Web Challenges

Online event

Join our community Discord server with this link: https://discord.gg/hacksouth

WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
This might be the only time we say this but get some carbonated drinks and eat the gas promoting foods because we want you to learn “burp-ing”! Okay maybe not that kind of burp but hopefully at the end of this session you’re familiar with the popular security web testing tool that is Burp Suite.

ARE YOU A BEGINNER?
You must start somewhere, so why not check in and let us help? We encourage everyone to join a positive InfoSec community to fast-track your awesome journey into cybersecurity.

WHAT DO I NEED?
Some electricity (Yikes Eskom), a computer and an internet connection! If you have not done so yet, sign up to Hack The Box before the event - https://www.hackthebox.com/ (it’s free).

REQUIRED SOFTWARE
This meetup will focus on more web challenges. We will use
• Burp Suite - https://portswigger.net/burp/communitydownload
• Firefox browser
Both are included in Kali or Parrot OS. Using one of these in a virtual machine is recommended, but not required - see the below section to set it up.

VIRTUAL MACHINE SETUP
We recommend installing your virtual machine before the Meetup in order to focus on the challenge. Please follow the instruction video below. We are happy to help set up your machine with you before the event - just reach out to one of the organisers.
