FREMONT, CA: YesWeHack, a leading Bug Bounty platform, recently released Dojo, a learning platform that enables ethical hackers to grow their skills in finding security vulnerabilities. At present, Dojo presents four varied training areas with courses and challenges of different levels of difficulty. Besides, users can play with their configurations and scenarios in a Playground. YesWeHack plans to familiarize the learning platform to current cybersecurity needs and to expand the training areas incessantly.

Cybersecurity Training In Real-Time

When it comes to information security, and particularly Bug Bounty, the learning process can be challenging. The theoretical data material is copious. Nevertheless, there are only a few occasions to prepare under realistic conditions and test real-time threat situations. For instance, the experience obtained from the YesWeHack Bug Bounty tool gave BitK, a hacker and technical ambassador at YesWeHack, the idea to make a training platform that provides users with instantaneous feedback on their coding tests.

"The focus of Dojo is on code. Users can see in real time what effects a certain input has and how security filters, installed by the developers, could be bypassed. Because we don't store the data on our servers, users can share and practice real-world exploits in Dojo without hesitation," BitK says.

There are four training areas for users who need more supervision: MongoDB Injections, SQL Injections, XPATH Injections, and Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) Errors, that YesWeHack will persist to complete.

Dojo presents, among others, the following training possibilities:

• Custom Capture-the-Flag (CTF) challenges can be formed without the need to set up a server.

• Mock-up of real system arrangements can be shared with other users through a private link without conceding the actual target's security and privacy.

• The Playground can be adopted as a real-time exploit editor. This way, difficult bugs can be inspected peacefully and soundlessly in a safe environment.

The Dojo learning platform is available as a free online offer at https://dojo-yeswehack.com. The only requirement is that one has to register on the YesWeHack platform.
