Description

In this course you will learn Linux privilege escalation. So what is that?


On a Linux system there are two kinds of users: regular users and root (administrator users). If there are misconfigurations in the Linux system, you are able to change your user: become another user (horizontal escalation) or even become root (vertical escalation).


If you have initial access to a Linux system, but want to become administrator or get access to other Linux accounts, it’s possible that you can get that access. If there are misconfigurations in the system, then you can abuse those in order to gain different user privileges on the Linux system. So this type of hacking is about getting more access into a system.


By the end of this course, you’ll be able to get root access if the Linux system is misconfigured. The course contains practice labs that will let you practice what you have learned in the course. You’ll be able to gain root and practice in several labs. You’ll also be able to find if a system is vulnerable to this type of escalation.


This is a beginners course, but basic Linux knowledge would be beneficial. You don’t need anything else, not even Kali Linux as the course includes practice labs itself.
