Demand for cybersecurity skills is growing quickly because there’s a shortage of skilled professionals who can help organizations defend against increasingly complex attacks. On the other hand, organizations struggle to understand how to find and retain skilled professionals. We help close the gap between both ends.

    Beginner’s Guide to sqlmap

    Learn to use one of the most popular tools to find SQL injection vulnerabilities: sqlmap. In this course, we start out by creating a simple, free, and quick home lab environment with Virtual Box, Kali Linux, and Docker. I'll walk you through step-by-step how to do that, so don't worry if it sounds intimidating! After that, we download and install the latest version of sqlmap. Then, we look at some of the most important and useful features and options for beginners to get started with. Finally, we launch SQL injection attacks against our lab environment in order to extract information from the vulnerable database. sqlmap can be used to extract information such as database schema, database names, table names, password hashes, and more. It even includes a built-in password cracker which we demonstrate by cracking all of the passwords stored in the users table of the database. This course is meant to be easy to follow so that you can quickly learn how to get started with sqlmap. So whether you are interested in becoming a web pentester, or whether you are interested in learning how to make web applications more secure, this course will help you understand what tools and techniques can be used to automate SQL injection attacks and complement manual exploration.

    Cross-Site Scripting (XSS): The 2021 Guide

    Description: In this course, you will develop the skills you need to successfully perform and combat Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) attacks. XSS is one of the top 10 most dangerous and common web application attacks according to both OWASP and CWE. I've spent months creating and collecting the best resources on XSS to put them in this course so that you can learn Cross-Site Scripting in a fun, efficient, and practical manner.

    In order to truly understand how XSS works and how to defend against it, you have to learn hands-on by executing attacks against vulnerable applications and then looking at secure versions of the same code, and that's exactly what you'll do in this course. We start out by explaining the concepts of XSS and its 3 main types: Reflected, Stored (Persistent), and DOM-based. Then, we take a look at case studies of recent real-world XSS vulnerabilities in Facebook, Gmail, Twitter, Tesla, Airbnb, and TikTok. After that, we spin up a lab environment to perform all 3 types of attacks with both manual and automated approaches. We then set up, configure, and use a powerful browser exploitation framework called BeEF to deliver a payload that hooks unsuspecting browsers. From there, you can launch a number of different attacks using BeEF command modules (ie: scanning internal networks, defacing websites, compromising routers, and more). Next, we apply everything we've learned to pentest the OWASP Juice Shop starting with information gathering, and then exploiting all 3 types of XSS. Finally, we wrap up the course by discussing the most (and least) effective defensive controls, including rules, cheat sheets, and recommended code review techniques to properly defend your applications from this dangerous threat.

    If you're looking for a hands-on way to learn Cross-Site Scripting, this is your course!

    Testimonials:

    "I've got about 3 years in software security with about 23 years in information and DOD security. While I was familiar with XSS I always thought it was a unique and not so dangerous vulnerability. Your course showed me just how damaging XSS could be, and the various ways to assess and mitigate XSS vulnerabilities. I’ll be incorporating your tools and processes in the way I work with teams to evaluate their products." - Matthew H.

    "This course is great and I would recommend it to anyone trying to learn about web-pentesting or trying to pursue bug bounty as this course gives you a good basis on XSS with a lot of hands-on work." - Bludger

    Injection Attacks: The Free Guide

    4.5+ rating (Udemy) 4.7 rating (Udemy)

    In this course, we explore the biggest risk facing web applications: injections. While we will focus primarily on SQL injections, there are other types of injections such as OS command, LDAP, XPATH, XML, and SMTP header injections, which are all listed in the OWASP Top 10 risks. In order to truly understand how injections work, we have to learn hands-on by executing attacks against vulnerable applications, and that's exactly what we'll do in this course. We start out by setting up safe and legal environments, and then we go on the offense exploring each successful and unsuccessful attack to understand what's going on, and ultimately, how to protect our apps against such vulnerabilities. So if you're looking for hands-on learning, this is your course!
