Course Description

Welcome to The Complete Guide to Bug Bounty Hunting. In this course, you will learn the essential tools and techniques required to hunt and exploit vulnerabilities in applications. The goal of this course is to equip ethical hackers with the knowledge required to be able to find and responsibly disclose vulnerabilities to companies, and gain rewards through existing bug bounty programs.

Here is a detailed breakdown of the course:

Fundamentals of OWASP Top 10 Vulnerabilities

This section will breakdown the most common vulnerabilities currently present in web applications. It will introduce the concepts of these vulnerabilities and demonstrate what to look for in order to detect them. The OWASP top 10 is essential for bug bounty hunters to know because it will allow you to better understand what you are looking for in a penetration test.

Kali Linux and Web Application Hacking

This section will teach you the most common tools used in Kali Linux by hackers, including Nmap, SQLmap, Commix, Wfuzz, Metasploit, and many others. You will learn how to gather information about targets and launch attacks to expose vulnerabilities in them. Web applications are some of the most common targets for bug bounties currently, so knowing how to create meaningful attacks against them is essential. 

Foundations of Hacking and Penetration Testing Android Apps

Most companies now have apps that are included in bug bounty programs. Learning how to scan and exploit these apps can often by a lucrative way to gain bounties. Given the new focus on application development, apps typically make a great target for bug bounties!
