If you want to learn ethical hacking the fun and easy way like playing a computer game, then this course is for you. There exists on the Internet several websites which allows people to hack and learn hacking.  These websites typically have different levels from easy to advanced. By hacking each level and gradually levelling up, you will learn hacking.  Traditionally, ethical hacking is taught by installing virtual machines on your PC and hacking the virtual machines inside your PC. This way of learning hacking can be pretty boring as there are no challenges or rewards. Also it can be quite laggy unless you have a high end machine. In addition, some people find learning Linux and installing virtual machines too troublesome.

In this course, I will show you an alternative way, which is more fun and where you will enjoy the thrills of hacking real websites legally and solving each level and going from easy and gradually to more advanced levels - just like paying online games.  The website we will be hacking is HackThisSite!! which is a popular hacker's playground where hackers play hacking games reminiscent of CTF (Capture the Flag) and learn at the same time. However, without some help and guidance you will find it quite challenging. Hence this course. I will walk through each level from Basic to Realistic

You do not need to go through the hassle of installing virtual machines  or Linux on your computer. All you need is a PC. In this course I am only using a Windows PC to do hacking.

Great way to learn Web Development & Information Technology (IT):

If you had always wanted to learn HTML, Javascript, PHP, MySQL, etc, what better way than to learn how to hack. So, I invite you to learn to hack and in the process, you will also learn web development and IT. This is much more fun & exciting than learning it the traditional way - the boring way through formal IT courses and books. You will be killing 2 birds with one stone, i.e. learning how to hack and also learn IT.  So let's get started in your journey of hacking to learn.

Bug Bounty:

Last, but not least, the site creators of HackThisSite encourage you to literally hack their site  to explore the security of their site and they will reward those who responsibly disclose their exploit with an entry into the HackThisSite hall of fame.

This course is backed by a 30-day money back guarantee.  So, go ahead and enroll in this course now and start hacking the fun and easy way!

It is just a walkthrough for hackthissite.org. It is more of a youtube playlist than course. You should have tried to make the students think of how to solve the problem, instead of giving them the solution directly.

I really like how the instructor explain and wait for us to solve the problems and It's really surprising in some of the stages how my approach and Instructor approach were totally different. This course is really helpful for the beginners but I highly suggest to those who are going to take this course, have some basic understanding of SQL,HTML and Linux Commands if your familiar with all this your doing to love this course or else you might end up simply watching and clearing the levels which is not worth it.

The instructor has taken the course in a way that makes it easy for novices to understand. I am not too fluent in PHP as I am in HTML or JavaScript but I could still understand and follow the instructor easily. Thank you very much for this course. Eager to take more courses in the future. -I

the teaching is good but the voice is difficult to listen too but the man put too much of dedication into this so its the best course ive done till now
July 24, 2020
Déjà le cours fait la revue des aspects de la programmation notamment avec le langage PHP et le langage HTML par rapport à la sécurité lors du développement du code. Et cela tout au début du cours on commence à être imprégné des failles dues à une mauvaise manière de coder.

Very good experience, it was my first ethical hacking course and its self explanatory, but i think the course needs to be reviewed as technology has advanced than the little and simple hacking. but its a good one for a starter.
June 19, 2020
I have learnt so many new concepts and enhance my knowledge too in ethical hacking it was a great experience

This tutorial is really simplified and am really impressed by the methodology Paul Chin adopted in teaching this course.. The only challenge i had was the failure to bypass the CAPTCHA in the HackThisSite.org. It keeps redirecting me to the same page. I think, if the CAPTCHA could be removed and replaced with a more easier one. it would be a very good one.
June 11, 2020
great teacher and i really learned some things about sqlinjection, directory traversal and cookie tampering. Downside for me was the application cracking, it's not really what im looking for but i had to go through it. All in all very great, thank you for the great information you provide

The course teacher speaks slowly and explains things for beginners which is nice, but can be annoying if you already know those things.
