Hey hackers! Once again, I scoured the Web to get you the best resources on hacking, pentesting and bug bounty hunting shared this week.
I’m publishing this a little late because there’s a lot of research involved and, well, sometimes life gets in the way… So the week covered is from the 1st to the 8th of June.
Have fun reading this, and don’t forget to share, retweet, comment, ask…!
Our favorite 5 hacking items
1. Webcast I enjoyed watching
This is a great webcast! I loved watching it for all the state of the art information, tips and feedback from professional pentesters.
2. Writeup of the week
This is a very well written writeup that details the recon process and the methodology used to find a PHP code execution and an SQL injection. It’s a real life example that is very educational for beginner penetration testers and bug bounty hunters.
3. Tutorials of the week
As a pentester or bug bounty hunter, you probably use Shodan all the time. But if you’re not currently using its GUI (i.e. the website) and not the command line, these videos are highly recommended! The GUI is nice but the CLI is a lot more practical, especially for logging purposes and when testing dozens of IPs & hosts at once.
4. Non technical item of the week
I like watching these short and fun videos. J4vv4d doesn’t take himself too seriously and tackles topics that anyone in the infosec field can relate to. Some of my favorites are:
- Bug bounty
- 10 infosec conversation starters
- 19 ways to say “Good job” to your security colleagues (Recommended if you’ve had a bad day at work!)
- Security Terminology
5. Article of the week
This is a nice introduction to understand Content Security Policy (CSP) and start looking for CSP bypass vulnerabilities!

Protip: Having trouble finding s3 bucket names to test? Decompile their android apps, grep through hardcoded strings for their s3 buckets!
A magic open redirect payload I recently used. http://target.com/?redirectUrl=//evil.me/?:
Use nmap as a vulnerability scanner with scripts that map the open ports to existing exploits or even existing external scans "nmap --script shodan-api --script-args 'http://shodan-api.target =$IP,shodan-api.apikey=API_KEY'"
Unpriv RCE to Root? If you get any sort of Unprivileged RCE that you cannot take it any further, for the sake of bounties run "aws s3 ls" and you'll be shocked how many S3 buckets & sensitive data you get. Sometimes stored root password (Yes I mean it)
In the beginning of a bug bounty program you should proudly send some bugs, even shitty ones to see how the company reacts.
Download a file from S3 by just supplying <bucket>/path/to/file...
We have created a mini-CTF for CONFidence recently. It's not particularly hard, but still you might have some good time trying to solve it. It's still live and will be for some time now. http://18.104.22.168/...
