After the relative success of the previous room I completed on TryHackMe, it was time to try something slightly more challenging. I really enjoyed watching the show Mr. Robot last year, so when I saw a Mr Robot themed room of medium difficulty, I thought this was the perfect one to try.
This TryHackme capture the flag was an interesting one. The tag-line for the Room was...What happens when some broke CompSci students make a password manager? The answer to that question is, you get your server hacked.
As well as Capture the Flag rooms, TryHackMe also has some OSINT rooms, where you can practice information gathering and analysis. OSINT, or Open-source Intelligence, is the process of researching and analysing information about a target based on what they post on social media...
After my success in a previous try hack me room, I decided to have a go at another one. This time it was a bit more difficult, and I have to admit, I needed to check the video at some stages to get some guidance. Never the less, here is how I managed to complete the room.
After going through the TryHackMe exercises for the AdventOfCyber2 Christmas challenge, I decided I wanted to branch out and try and put what I had learned so far into practice.
