Hacking is the art, creativity is your instrument

Hey there and welcome to my website!

I am Vlad aka Chevalier, I currently work as a Senior Security Architect and am interested in hacking (cliche time: hacking all the things, drinking all the coffee). I work on different projects such as:

  • Re-designing the website (sparkles we moved away from Windows Server and Umbraco)
  • Working on a Risk Assessment Tool
  • Automating the boring stuff
  • Helping others get into Cyber-Security

I have been a member of TryHackMe since September 2019, but started hacking stuff in late November, and became one of the first community mentors since December 2019.

With the previously mentioned site I was able to discover some of my first bounties such as: XSS, Social Engineering, messing around with the web application logic, which felt really nice and managed to get me going.

Below, behold my cool badges:
