Command Injection is a critical security vulnerability that allows an attacker to execute arbitrary operating system commands on the server running the application, often leading to complete remote code execution. Therefore, mastering the ability to identify and exploit command injection vulnerabilities has become an essential and foundational skill.
In this course, we dive into the technical details behind command injection vulnerabilities. We explore methods for detecting these vulnerabilities from both black-box and white-box perspectives, along with various techniques for exploiting them. Moreover, we provide insights into preventive and mitigative measures to safeguard against command injection attacks.
This course goes beyond the basics, offering a well-balanced blend of theoretical knowledge and practical experience! It contains five hands-on labs of varying complexity levels, guiding you through the process of manually exploiting the vulnerability and then scripting and automating your exploits using Python.
By the end of this course, you'll not only have a solid understanding of command injection vulnerabilities, but also the ability to identify and exploit these vulnerabilities in real-world applications. We've designed the course content to be beginner-friendly, so you'll never feel overwhelmed.
Whether you are a penetration tester, an application security specialist, a bug bounty hunter, a software developer, an ethical hacker, or simply someone intrigued by web application security, this course is for you!
