Hello @jeko, I am glad to see you are interested in Cyber Security. You can use this site as a place to be mentored. Tons of good material on here and if you have questions you can ask. If you are very new I would suggest getting familiar with Linux and taking advantage of the free content we have on the site. Start with the ethical hacking course to learn basics.

hey, @MoNsTeR thank you for your reply and your help with stuff to study and links to online practice and learning. I have been looking through cybrary trying to do network + because i see its essential to understand that. I also done a bit with linux. The places i try to learn from give me a lot of theory but no practical so i don’t know where or when to use what i have learned.
Thank you @MoNsTeR again for giving me those links, i know your busy but could you be my personal mentor? skype and stuff?

Hey!

I think this wargame would be best for if you’re barely starting out.
https://overthewire.org/wargames/bandit/

Try out a bunch of capture the flags and resist the urge to look up walkthroughs

If you’re a little more experienced I say to try out https://www.hackthebox.eu/

There are other sites that’ll help you with specific exploits such as like
XSS : https://xss-game.appspot.com/

This is also a great website to use to learn about the different type of exploits

If you’re ever stuck on anything, google is your best friend!

Make websites from scratch, build your own database, setup an old computer with a bunch of open ports on it and try to get into all of these.

Practice makes perfect!

If you would like to buddy up to learn together Im open to that. I know a little but not in practice.

@jeko Anonymousfiles is used for hosting a variety of things including malicious files. Everything I upload is safe as long as anonymousfiles.io has not been compromised it is safe. What you can do is create a virtual machine and things you are not sure about or are questionable download onto and view it on that. It will have no affect on your host machine if you do run into malicious software. Always keep your host machine clean.
