Today I’m coming back to squash the Starting Point, Tier 0, with Synced! Starting Point is for learning the basics of pen-testing and cyber security, and what better way to do it than by discovering Linux RSYNC, a wonderful native tool for moving data from server to server.
The Linux-based program Rsync may be used to synchronize data across distant and nearby servers. In order to customize the connections you establish, Rsync provides a wide variety of settings. You have complete control over the parameters of an rsync transfer, from the shell to be used to the exclusion of certain files.
If not configured properly, rsync can be a detriment to cyber security and this is what Hack The Box tries to teach you as a pen tester.
I hope you enjoy it!
