Pentesting the Forum Lab

Infosec Learning
Virtual Lab

In this lab, we demonstrate why the input being supplied to the forum must be secured. Then we will implement a security control that will mitigate the attack and ask you to bypass it in a pentesting assignment. We will use the Ubuntu client to implement the security control and run the setup script. All pentesting will be performed from Kali.
