On the request of some people I thought of writing a small review for this course and certificate. The course is WAPTx – Web Application Penetration Tesing eXtreme. The certificate is eWPTX – eLearnSecurity Web application Penetration Tester eXtreme. Last year I completed eWPT you check that post from here.
This course is very up to date compared to other web application penetration testing courses. I learned many things that I didn’t know in different web application technologies. There are many languages, technologies in the world of web applications. It’s very hard to master them all. This course however covers many advanced attack methodologies.
The exam is however “hard”, not matter you are a web developer or a networking guy, you need to make sure you understand how each vulnerability is exploited and also how to bypass filters. You cannot just fire up a tool and expect results. Make sure you understand manual exploitation and exploitation is always not straight forward in real world applications.
I actually loved the exam, it was a very small web app but lots of unseen holes. My experience with SQL injections came in handy in the exam 😉
If you are seeking for a next level certification in web application hacking I would recommend this course.
It was a very fast year! 2016 ended nicely as I planned. By October completed eCPPT, by November completed eCRE, by December completed eWPTX 🙂 Nothing is impossible if you try hard 😉
Thank you everyone for your feedback and messages!
