Typically I'd go full tilt for a few weeks, finish the small project and then fall off the wagon. Until another project would come up and I would have to start all over. As I moved into mobile forensics I had a three day course on Python and was pretty motivated again. I ended up writing a piece of a program to decode some data via hex from a mobile app when our forensic suite finally had support for the app. Fast forward a few months and I was back to learning Python again. This time I used CodeSchool and it was pretty great. Got me right where I needed to be and I finally had a pretty big project.

We work with a lot of small firms and with that comes the chance to test new products to give them much needed feedback. We in turn get to have a say in things we'd like to see, though sadly not all of our suggestions make the grade. So we were testing a product and it worked pretty well along with integrated with another software suite we use. The problem? The interface is very clunky. It's fine for us, we use it everyday, but for other units it is a pain. Now they were using some open source hardware so I knew there is at least a little open source code there and thus getting to the data should be easier. Low and behold they are storing the data in text files, so yay Python!

I get to work and within a couple days I have a solid script that will parse all of the data in the various text documents and then load the data in a JSON database. Worked great, but it was ultra slow. A couple days worth of data was taking something like 20 minutes to load into the database and then queries were not working as well as I would have liked. I decide to go the sqlite route and bam the script loads the data in about 2 seconds. Perfect! But then the problem arose. I need timestamps and they are no where to be found. Thus I can tell you the day something occurs, but not the exact time. Reach out to the vendor, explain what I had thus far and he lays it on me: he used an algorithm to encode the time and he's pretty sure I won't figure it out (never a good thing to say to me). But he does offer to write a parser for me to decode the data. Excellent, I ask him to make it command line based with some flags.

It had been a couple months and I hadn't heard anything. Today I decided at the very least I should make the GUI. Mind you I have no experience in making a GUI in Python. Three hours later I have the GUI and modified the program so it works without issue (even has some error checking!). Had to speak with the vendor about a different issue and he asked if I had gotten the decoder he sent. I explained I hadn't received it and he resends it.

Now I just need to modify my code a bit and the heavy lifting part of the program will be done. There's some charting I want to do with the data and I'm looking at making a local web page to do that. But I'm also going to write a function to out put the data to csv so the Excel Nerds can go to town.

Moral of the story: as a friend once told me, if you want to program find a project and start. Get some of the basics, but other then that Google when you hit problems. I hit a couple of snags and was able to fix all of them through a little bit of Googling. ]]>

I need another 2-3 people for an OSINT CTF team (or I need to find a group looking for one more).

Quote:

Unlike most CTFs, the targets are real (people), the flags are real (information), and it doesn’t take a PhD in cryptography to win! Join a team and show everyone your Internet stalking skills in this one-of-a-kind CTF (that we know of). Over $2000 in cash and prizes are awarded for the top 3 teams, including highly coveted social engineering tools.

I retook the Comptia Security+ exam for my WGU curriculum and failed with a even lower score. The first attempt I made a 670. This go around I have no idea how in the heck i scored a 468. That's embarrassing. I read the Emmet dulaney Security+ book and the corresponding professer messer videos. What in the hell am I missing?!? Advice before I rip my hair out? ]]>

I'm curious to know whether anyone can tell me more about the WAPT course that elearnsecurity offer? I did the OSCP in 2014 and honestly - it helped me get a job in a SOC, but did little to nothing for a pentesting job - purely because most pen-testing companies want web-app pentesters.

So that leaves me with two choices: self-study and somehow learn web-app pentesting, or get a course that'll boost me right into what I need to be studying - although there's a cost to it.

So I guess what i'm asking is this: Is the WAPT course worth it? Do you think it's realistic to pass it and become a junior pen-tester? If i'm wasting my time, don't be afraid to say. At this point in my career, pen-testing seems like the only thing that'll be an enjoyable job and if I can't get into that, then I think I need to re-assess my decision to work in IT. ]]>

PASSED!: Exam 533: Implementing Microsoft Azure Infrastructure Solutions http://rejsy-morskie.com/?page=forums/cloud-certifications/129209-passed-exam-533-implementing-microsoft-azure-infrastructure-solutions.html Fri, 22 Sep 2017 15:23:48 GMT This was another pretty hard one folks! Not on the level of the infamous 70-511, but you've got to know your powershell commands and virtual networking configuration!

Unfortunately, study resources for this exam are still pretty slim out there, but the beauty is that you can self study your butt off by setting up virtual networks, VMs and web applications and appliances to your heart's content from ANY computer with an internet connection and a web browser.

I'm going to have to take a SMALL break, and I think that it's on to AWS or CCNA next! ]]>

I want to say it was screenshots of completion of the lessons in each completed course via FedVTE

Thing is, the stuff I did last year on FedVTE still says completed. What keeps me from simply taking screenshots of these already completed lessons again and uploading them for the next renewal? Are you not allowed to take the same courses that you did from the previous renewal cycle?

Ill probably just take different trainings than I did last year to be safe, but I just found it weird that the courses I took over a year ago still say completed. ]]>
