Wargames and CTFs

One great way to practice your skills in the pentesting world is to participate in wargames and CTFs. You can play wargames on sites like OverTheWire or SmashTheStack, take part in sanctioned CTFs such as those through CTF365, or setup your own lab at home and play around in it.

This afternoon I thought it’d be fun to play a quick wargame and decided there might be some educational benefit to others by sharing my notes. The game I chose was Leviathan on OverTheWire, it’s fairly easy but a good starting point for those new to this and a fun hour or so for those not so new.

Check out my notes on my GitHub repository. Feel free to message me if you have any questions!
