On the 22nd and 23rd October, Gleydson Mazioli participated in The Shellcode Lab, a renowned training course given annually at Black Hat USA since 2011.

Developed entirely by Threat Intelligence Pty Ltd, the course demonstrated how to develop payloads for Linux, Mac and Windows, integrate them into public exploits and the Metasploit exploration framework.

Participants were also enabled to create a wide range of backdoors ranging from command execution in 32-bit and tiny egg-hunting payloads to 64-bit port bind payloads.

Michelle Ribeiro was selected as one of the Alumni to be highlighted and her story is in the University of London magazine celebrating 150 years of female education. The campaign will also feature a photo exhibition at the renowned Senate House, one of the historic buildings of the English capital.

Gleydson Mazioli obtained another LPI certification, now specialized in Security, with a score of almost 90%. With this result, he renews the other certifications obtained in the track: LPI 1, LPI 2 and LPI 301.

The LPIC-303 is designed to identify Linux production engineers with an emphasis on security. The certification is divided into five sessions – encryption, access control, application security, network security and security operations, and the applicant must have an active LPIC-2 certification to receive LPIC-3 certification.

According to Mazioli, with 87% of organizations stating that it’s hard to find open source talent, we’ve been happy to be a reference for customers in this industry for more than 15 years. “This certification shows that even with our shift in focus to Security and Performance, Linux will never cease to be part of our essence,” says the IT Manager.
