Monday, March 18
Katarina Borodina wrote a thing on how to get started pentesting, good overview to share with friends looking to break into the biz #longlivetheredteam. And on the pentester motif, check out PowerHub by Adrian Vollmer: web application which aids a pentester in transferring files, in particular code which may get flagged by endpoint protection.
