OSCP Study Progress – October 2017

This is meant to be a personal log of study progress toward OSCP certification.

Lab Progress: 15 days of lab time goes by very quickly!  I have two days left and am feeling pretty good about the amount of practice I’ve got from the labs so far.  There was a fair amount of overlap between them and some of the Vulnhub VMs I’ve done, but as I said in some previous notes I was definitely lacking in experience in Windows machines as well as more “real world” hacking techniques.  Things like pivoting and using captured credentials to log in to other locations within the network aren’t things you’re exposed to in the VMs either.  I’d really like to hone my ability to gain persistence on machines and also get some more experience with Windows priv-esc.  More practice with buffer overflow attacks would definitely help too…
