Bug Hunting Exercise @ SP, by YESWEHACK.com

2 Sep 2019. In the afternoon, DISM students continued with the Bug Hunting Exercise at Cyber Wargame Centre (CWC). Two web-based applications were hosted on the network for students to try out their skills to identify vulnerabilities in the application systems. It was quite an eventful day as the instructors (Lucas and Kevin) and students were able to identify quite a few vulnerabilities such as directory listing, user enumeration, IDOR, XSS, privilege escalation, etc.

The bug hunting exercise will help the students to understand the process of bug hunting as well as to appreciate that this approach is more efficient way to security testing.
