🐝 Hive Five 100 – 2022 OSCP study guide, command-line data-wrangling, and offsec tools

Hi friends,

Greetings from the hive!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Did you tune into NahamCon 2022 EU? I sadly missed it, as I'm not in a European-friendly timezone. Nevertheless, I've included several talks in this week's edition as they're always a must-watch.

It has also been getting colder where I live. Although some people may not enjoy the colder weather, I find it invigorating. The crisp, cool air has a soothing and refreshing effect on me, and I love the feeling of it on my skin as I take deep breaths.

Let's take this week by swarm!
