If you need some help to complete one of the challenge hosted by HackThis!!, I advise you to use the Forum dropdown and go to the appropriate section (the one corresponding to the level you are stuck at). You will find several threads that could provide useful information. If they are of no help, you can create a new one in the same place.
Most schools are a joke. They tend to care about the money, and they don’t care much about what you learn. They tend to teach basic things about open ports, passwords, etc. But they never go into what you really need to know. (Law, social, and how to find 0 day)
I’ve never seen a teacher that actually has done any work as a RL hacker BTW.
While I think getting a degree is a good thing in helping in getting jobs. But, you’re going to school for the wrong reason if you’re there to learn. You can get the same and updated info online.
(I’ve had plenty of IT teacher that asked me how to do something when I was their student. Many of these things they were asking how to do is part of their job outside of the class. (I even had one brought a UBS stick with the end bent at a 45 degree and asked me if I can fix it))
BTW, the reason why I think people should get a degree in most types of jobs is if you don’t invest yourself, then why would a company.
I’m just shamelessly going to copy my comment from another thread here:
I would suggest some of the following:
- Google, blogs, forums, etc.
- Take a look at vulnhub, download a vulnerable machine and set up your own hacking lab. You can use vmware player for free to set up such lab.
- I’d suggest to learn a bit of python, and some basic linux stuff. I didn’t like those things at all at first, but love them now. You can use those skills for almost anything hacking related.
Oh, don’t forget to download a Kali Linux VM as your operating system to attack from. This OS has all the (hacking) tools needed.
