Having been a website admin I often had to deal with the aftermath of someone hacking a server, but my response wasn’t usually all that sophisticated. About a week, and a half ago someone started leading a “expliot workshop” to work on trying to create new exploits as a learning exercise. The book “The art of exploitation 2nd edition” was pointed out as one of the best guides to actually doing this, and I decided to get a copy. Recently I’ve been trying to seek out fun programming tasks, and hacking always felt rather game like.
