Great article! Many useful tools listed.
That Civ5/real country analogy made me chuckle, so true.
Too often on HackTheBox labs you find something conveniently hidden in plain sight that contains plaintext password, or weak password hash from the top of rockyou.txt wordlist in Kali.
Haven't had this much luck with real world environments so far.


Thanks Alexander! :)
Yeah I was a little iffy on whether to add HTB at all but I figured it was probably good for beginners, to at least build up confidence.
I was definitely in for a shock when I went from ctfs to the real world!
