Hi, I have new coding / programming knowledge, do you think it will work for me. Thanks
Hi there, good question! It’s up to what you’d like to learn! There is not an official prerequisite class for this course, however we suggest that potential students have the following knowledge before taking XDS:
Solid understanding of Windows & Linux internals
Basic reverse engineering skills
Basic Python scripting skills
Basic understanding of x86/x64 assembly and C/C++ language – Covering assembly and C/C++ programming is beyond the scope of the course
Knowledge of fundamental programming concepts such as variables, loops, functions, etc.
When will the webinar for the xdsv1 be uploaded?
We are working on getting the video shared shortly. Thank you for your patience!
Hi, I am currently enrolled on the PTS course and Im particularly interested in coding/exploit dev.
If I consider signing up to the XDS course, would the ARES course be considered the next logical step?
There are several different routes you could take! To continue on the red team path, we suggest WAPTX or PTX. You can also develop your purple team skills with THP or DFP. Hope this helps!
I have a Networking formation and a basic knowledge in programming. With that in mind can I get the course?
Good question! While there are no official prerequisites, we recommend students have a solid understanding of Windows & Linux internals, basic reverse engineering skills, pentesting basics, basic Python scripting skills, basic understanding of x86/x64 assembly and C/C++ language – Covering assembly and C/C++ programming is beyond the scope of the course and knowledge of fundamental programming concepts such as variables, loops, functions, etc.
