Bugcrowd University Launches Free Hands-on Training For Security Professionals

Bugcrowd University launches a free open-source training program to educate the security professionals with the latest technologies and to improve their skills.

All the contents of the program created by BCU content creation team focusing the bug bounty researcher’s success said Bugcrowd’s, VP Jason Haddix.

They have launched five set of modules focused on web hacking and they planned to add more articles with Bugcrowd University in the coming months.

“I’m proud to launch Bugcrowd University and I can’t wait to see how the community reacts and particularly, how the content can help them reach their goals.”

Haddix said the main motive is to train and empower our Crowd to find high-priority vulnerabilities and to increase the number of skilled researchers looking for vulnerabilities.

“I am actually pretty excited for Bugcrowd University because I think for beginners it’s extremely hard (at least was for me) to get started and to get a basic idea of how this really works. But getting learning material from official sources like Bugcrowd would help a lot of people out when they just considering to start doing bug bounty.” said xdavidhu, a 16-year-old hacker from Hungary.

“The only way to beat an army of adversaries is with an army of allies. As the Internet’s attack surface increases daily and the cybersecurity resource shortage deepens, Bugcrowd University will build that army and deploy them to keep the Internet, and everyone connected to it, safe,” said Casey Ellis, Bugcrowd founder & CTO.

Bug Bounty Researchers are from every corner of the world and predominantly from India, the United States, Pakistan, India and United Kingdom.

A Bug bounty program is also known as vulnerability rewards program (VRP) is the one where security researchers can disclose vulnerabilities and can receive recognition and compensation for reporting bugs.

Bug Bounty program employs crowdsource security researchers will diverse skill set covering a wide of vulnerability scenarios and advanced threats.

The Bug bounty platforms provide access to talents, offers services like bug triaging, bug report validation, managing bounty setting, and payments. Bounty programs take the hassle away so that organizations can concentrate on their core strengths.

Low Rate DDoS Attack

9 of 10 sites on the AppTrana network have faced a DDoS attack in the last 30 days.
Some DDoS attacks could readily be blocked by rate-limiting, IP reputation checks and other basic mitigation methods.
More than 50% of the DDoS attacks are employing botnets to send slow DDoS attacks where millions of IPs are being employed to send one or two requests per minute..
Key takeaways include:

  • The mechanics of a low-DDoS attack
  • Fundamentals of behavioural AI and rate-limiting
  • Surgical mitigation actions to minimize false positives
  • Role of managed services in DDoS monitoring
