  1. Hi, I'm fairly sure most people who get involved in security, pen testing etc, will know things about networks, linux, and a handful of languages and understanding of exploits depending on what they're doing. A part from things like becoming a better programmer or learning more about networks what are some things you would assume security experts to know? I'm looking for things to do with security but mainly things that don't necessarily come under security like linux kernel development or AI but could be incredibly beneficial to someone in security. Thanks!
  2. Hey, I'm signed up for the 30 day OSCP course to start in about a month and have a few questions, I understand everyone is supposed to keep quiet about the exam so if this is breaking the rules please let me know. So in the exam I've heard you have 5 machines on the network you have to get root on, are they all in the same IP range for example 192.168.0.1 -> 192.168.0.255 or is it more complicated than that? I'm guessing at the start they won't tell you what the IP addresses are as well? Also are there more machines on the network you aren't supposed to target to make things trickier?
  3. Hey, i'm reading a book Metasploit The Penetration Testers Guide and in it the author mentions that in general you should not set the THREADS value in Metasploit to more than 16 on Windows machines and more than 128 on UNIX style machines. I'm just curious as to why, and also why so little on windows? Later in the book the author also uses 255 threads for a port scan. Thanks
