What have you written?

2 posts in this topic

Of course we all know that programming knowledge isn't absolutely essential to pentesting, but it's definitely beneficial, especially if you have any proficiency whatsoever. We always do hear that same phrase of "you might need it for specific situations in which case a simple tool won't do for you."

So what have your 'specific cases' been and what did you write/how did your code work? Post gists if you want.

Personally, I don't do much pentesting, I'm more of a security enthusiast at most, so Hackthebox every now and then, but most of the time it doesn't involve having to write something for a specific use case (unless it's for patching an application for a crack-me.) Still, would be kinda nice to hear about all these special cases.

PS: Don't get me wrong, I am (relatively) okay at programming and have written a few useful scripts for my own personal uses not related to security/pentesting, just not for the same reasons of course.

I'm fairly new to this field so I'm still on training wheels with Linux ;]
