OSCP diary – week 02

Or is it week 3 already? Haha, looks like I lost track already.

Finished that Perl script to get nameservers from a domain. Finally.
Not that Perl might be a particular scripting language, but…. not chomping an input breaks a loop because of an empty variable? Although the same variable holds a value as evidenced in the loop?
Can’t really say I understand this so far.

Got through the scanning basics but I’m undecided on the inclusion of Nessus in the ‘textbook’. Not checked yet whether you’re allowed to use Nessus during the exam, but I guess no. It was good to do some hands-on exercises with Nessus but if the basis of the coure is the open-source Kali Linux, then including tools like VMware Fusion and Nessus in the course materials feels somewhat …. off.

Anyway, moving on web application security now.
