It should be noted that the course materials have not been covered in any of my other courses except for some basics. In one of my other courses, I cover website hacking, but that course only covers the basics. This course covers more techniques, more vulnerabilities, advanced exploitation, advanced post-exploitation, bypassing security, and much more!

It is my pleasure to welcome you to this comprehensive course on Website penetration testing. During this course, you will learn web application hacking and bug bounty hunting! Website Hacking / Penetration Testing & Bug Bounty Hunting assumes no prior knowledge of hacking, and by the end of the course, you’ll know how to hack & discover bugs in websites like black-hat hackers and secure them like security experts!

In this course, you will learn how to set up the necessary software (on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X) and then we’ll take a look at website’s basics, the different components of a website, the technologies involved and then we’ll jump into website hacking. The rest of the course will be based on discovering vulnerabilities in websites and exploiting them to compromise them, so you won’t have to sit through dry lectures filled with theory.

We teach you how to gather comprehensive information about a target website before getting started with hacking. Our Website Hacking / Penetration Testing & Bug Bounty Hunting course is divided into several sections. In each section, you will learn how to discover, exploit, and mitigate a common web application vulnerability; for each vulnerability, you will first learn the basic exploitation, then advanced ways to bypass security, escalate your privileges, access the database, and even hack into other websites on the same server.

Bug bounty programs often feature vulnerabilities like these, and most of the ones covered here are in OWASP’s top 10.

Learn how to fix these issues and what to avoid in the process of learning how and why vulnerabilities are exploitable.

Here’s a more detailed breakdown of the Website Hacking / Penetration Testing & Bug Bounty Hunting course content:

1. The Information Gathering module explains how to gather information about a target website, such as its DNS information, services used, subdomains, unpublished directories, sensitive files, user emails, sites on the same server, and even the hosting provider. Information like this is crucial since it increases the likelihood of successfully gaining access to the target website.

2. Vulnerability Discovery, Exploitation, and Mitigation – This section covers ways to discover, exploit, and mitigate the vulnerability of any given system. There is a number of sub-sections, each covering a specific vulnerability. The first thing you will learn is what the vulnerability is and what can be done with it, then you will learn how to exploit this vulnerability. Last but not least, we will analyze the code that leads to this vulnerability and see how it can be fixed. The following vulnerabilities are covered in the Website Hacking / Penetration Testing & Bug Bounty Hunting course:

  • File upload –  This vulnerability allow attackers to upload executable files on the target web server, exploiting these vulnerabilities properly gives you full control over the target website.
  • Code Execution – This vulnerability allow users to execute system code on the target web server, this can be used to execute malicious code and get a reverse shell access which gives the attacker full control over the target web server.
  • Local File Inclusion – This vulnerability can be used to read any file on the target server, so it can be exploited to read sensitive files, we will not stop at that though, you will learn two methods to exploit this vulnerability to get a reverse shell connection which gives you full control over the target web server.
  • Remote File Inclusion – This vulnerability can be used to load remote files, exploiting this vulnerability properly gives you full control over the target web server.
  • SQL Injection –  This is one of the most dangerous vulnerabilities, it is everywhere and can be exploited to do all of the things the above vulnerabilities allow us to do and more, so it allows you to login as admin without knowing the password, access the database and get all data stored there such as usernames, passwords, credit cards ….etc, read/write files and even get a reverse shell access which gives you full control over the target server!
  • Cross Site Scripting (XSS) – This vulnerability can be used to inject javascript code in vulnerable pages, we won’t stop at that, you will learn how to steal credentials from users (such as facebook or youtube passwords) and even gain full access to their computer.
  • Insecure Session Management- In this section you will learn how to exploit insecure session management in web applications and login to other user accounts without knowing their password, you’ll also learn how to discover and exploit CSRF (Cross Site Request Forgery) vulnerabilities to force users to change their password, or submit any request you want.
  • Brute Force & Dictionary Attacks- In this section you will learn what are these attacks, the difference between them and how to launch them, in successful cases you will be able to guess the password for a target user.

3. Post Exploitation – In this section you will learn what can you do with the access you gained by exploiting the above vulnerabilities, you will learn how to convert reverse shell access to a Weevely access and vice versa, you will learn how to execute system commands on the target server, navigate between directories, access other websites on the same server, upload/download files, access the database and even download the whole database to your local machine. You will also learn how to bypass security and do all of that even if you did not have enough permissions! 

The Website Hacking / Penetration Testing & Bug Bounty Hunting course provides 24/7 support, so if you have any questions, you are welcome to post them in the Q&A area. We will call you and respond within 15 hours.


  • This course is created for educational purposes only and all the attacks are launched in my own lab or against systems that I have permission to test.
