2020 has only just started in action and already we have an update to Kali! The new build, 2020.1 brings in another big round of changes which include things like changing the username and password cobo and cool stuff like NOT running as root by default for all those who love a KALI daily driver! 😛
This post is aimed at beginners, if you’re an experienced user you probably have already installed by now, so go secure stuff by sending all the pews. For the rest of you, let’s get the ISO downloaded and get cracking (maybe literally!)
We’ve also made a video to accompany this post (the video is a gui encrypted LVM install): Watch it here!
You can get Kali through HTTP or using torrents from the following link:

Those who know me know that I not only practise offensive security techniques from a business perspective, I also play in a CTF team and build PwnDefend CTF challenges. I came up with the idea of doing a red and blue team CTF sometime in 2018 however this isn’t as easy to build and run as you would think. Anyway, I digress… as part of my research and personal development I like to test out other platforms and pwn a few things so I thought I’d do a quick write up of the Pentester Academy Attack Defense labs Web Application Broken Authentication challenge. Spoiler alert.. I spoil this one (but it’s easy so don’t cry too hard!) Read more “Pentester Academy Attack Defense Labs – Web Application: Broken Authentication”
