About the educational program Hacktory offers
Students are expected to show self-discipline and desire to learn something new in the various areas of cybersecurity
During the program, each student has to select one of the topics for study and prepare a practice assignment related to the chosen vulnerability, which includes:
The description of the vulnerability
Ways to find it in code and during testing
Ways to fix it
Typical examples of vulnerability implementation
Ways to exploit the vulnerability
Public cases of disclosure of the chosen vulnerability
We strive to spread information about IT issues and equip as many people as possible with the tools and knowledge to defend applications against cyber threats.
Each lesson includes identification and exploitation tasks as well as code correction tasks
- Searching for files and directories
- Directory Traversal, LFI/RFI vulnerabilities
