It was on a Pentest project, When I was listing all the aquisitions, domains and everything related to that organization, I found a Mobile App. So as I was always doing I have downloaded the APK of that app to do the static analysis (Actually just checking weather the firebase is set properly or not), but interestingly found a new domain that has not been found earlier. Hmm interesting .. It was a subdomain…


Hi hackers,

Let’s see how to make money by hacking

You are here because you wanna be a hacker and earn money legally. So let’s get into it. When I get started it took me a while due to the lack of basics because I didn’t had any background in it.

Today I am gonna explain about getting duplicates in reporting bugs. This is purely my experience and how am I overcoming that

My reports on an external program

When I started learning to hack I heard everywhere that “Duplicates are common in Bug Bounty”, but till I get a duplicate I didn’t realized how demotivating that is. There are some guys who takes duplicates as motivation, they are just awesome.

When I started getting duplicates, I felt nothing but when everything I report is a duplicate I felt too much demotivated and became mad at myself. But once I reported 5 bugs to a company and…

Let’s learn to hack with open redirect.

After the 1st post of Find Your First Bug series I got so good responses and that made me to write more. Haha so let’s get straight into the subject.

An attacker can construct a URL within the application that causes a redirection to an arbitrary external domain.
