    Abit off topic, but can you talk about how relevant the eleansecurity ptp cert and content is to modern day pentesting? I was just trying to ascertain that from the ptp review video, that you made, as the ptpv5 has been out for awhile now?

    Thank you

    your vids are very good but you definitely must do something on your audio quality!

    Thanks for the info, had not heard of most of these attacks. I don’t know how true this is but what I heard about the Twitter hack is that the attacker(s) gained access to a Slack channel for Twitter tech employees which had admin credentials posted in the channel. Thanks to FireEye for revealing their breech, who knows when Solor winds vuln would have been discovered if they did not disclose it. The creepy part is that the attackers where in the network since March i believe.

    Probably my favourite quote of 2020 was when I was watching a stream covering the Twitter breach live. They were looking at what accounts were being used and said "oh my god they got Obama…"

    I don’t know why but it makes me laugh
