Ready to challenge your skills? Getting ready for a CTF or a Cyber Challenge?
Train With CyberQ Skill Pack Challenges
CyberQ Skillpacks are designed to test your skills in a variety of different challenges with limited guidance. Each challenge runs independently as its own “Self-Paced Capture the Flag.” Launching a Skill Pack challenge will reserve your very own space in our CyberQ Data Center, we will raise the Attack Console, as well as the down-range vulnerable targets for you to practice and challenge your skills.
Each challenge includes a set of distinct challenge flags, in order to solve the flags you must perform a variety of procedures in the target environment including basic host discovery, service discovery, vulnerability analysis, attack procedures, privilege escalation, and more.
Please note, this is not a learning lab. Skill packs are designed intentionally with challenges, puzzles, and preconfigured targets that will test your ability to identify, analyze, exploit, and own the targets. If you are new to Cyber and have never participated in a cyber challenge or competition, Skill packs may be too advanced. So, feel free to browse our learning products if this describes you, however, if you are ready for a challenge, enjoy solving complex puzzles and testing your limits, CyberQ challenges are a great way to hone your trade craft.

About Privilege Escalation Skill Pack
Privileges are a security role assigned to users for using specific programs, features, OSs, functions, files or codes, etc., to limit their access by different types of users. If a user is assigned more privileges, he/she can modify or interact with more restricted parts of the system or application than less privileged users. Attackers initially gain system access with low privilege and then try to gain more privileges to perform activities restricted from less privileged users. A privilege escalation attack is the process of gaining more privileges than were initially acquired.
In a privilege escalation attack, attackers first gain access to the network using a non-admin user account and then try to gain administrative privileges. Attackers employ design flaws, programming errors, bugs, and configuration oversights in the OS and software application to gain administrative access to the network and its associated applications.
