HackTheBox Mango Write-up

Mango was an interesting box when it comes to enumeration. It taught me to look more closely and not brush off anything just because I have seen it before. The box is also a prime lesson to aggregate your recon info in a structured manner so it’s easier to apply it at other points when you hit a dead end somewhere. There were also some nice opportunities for small, specialised attack scripts, which I particularly enjoyed!


Dear Medium,

My blogging journey has taken me far. I started writing articles about six years ago. Things got serious after I started studying Computer Science. Among the students of my class there was a lot of chatter. The tendency was that who was unable to communicate would soon start failing exams and eventually quit. In this setting, I started writing technical articles, first on an intranet website. Later GitHub gists. Finally I made the step to host my own blog.
