Announcing Pro Lab Cybernetics

Mar 31, 2020


Dear Community,

We are happy to announce the release of our brand new Cybernetics Pro Lab!

Cybernetics was developed in cooperation with @lkys37en, a long-standing moderator and good friend of Hack The Box. This new HTB Pro Lab is here to provide a fresh perspective, new tools, techniques, operations and ultimately a new learning experience for all HTB members. Our testing team says it’s amazing! We hope that you share the same feeling.

What is Cybernetics about?

Cybernetics LLC, a robot manufacturing company, needs your assistance! You are a consultant that was brought in to perform a red team assessment on the Cybernetics environment. Your objective is to establish a foothold and pivot through the internal environment and acquire domain administrator privileges in all domains.

What you will learn?

Cybernetics Pro Lab is an immersive Windows Active Directory environment that has gone through various pentest engagements in the past, and therefore has upgraded Operating Systems, applied all patches and hardened the underlying operating systems. Here is what is included:

  • Web application attacks
  • Kerberos abuse
  • Active Directory enumeration and exploitation
  • Phishing
  • Privilege escalation
  • Lateral movement
  • Evading endpoint protections

21 Machines and 18 Flags! Can you break through? Take up the challenge and go get them all!

How can someone discover Cybernetics?

Cybernetics Pro Lab will be provided to all HTB members on a subscription-based model (similar to our other two Pro Labs: Offshore and RastaLabs) available on a monthly and annual subscription, with an initial setup fee. For more info look for the Cybernetics section inside the HTB platform.

Business customers are also able to use the Cybernetics Pro Lab in a dedicated environment of a Professional Lab. If you want to utilize Cybernetics as part of your cyber security training at work, feel free to reach out to [email protected] for more information.

Happy hacking! Happy learning!
