These missions are for everyone here, and you can join at any time. Your experience level doesn't matter. HackThisSite is a free, legal and safe practice ground for aspiring hackers wanting to test their knowledge on something real. We have full permission to exploit their servers, and we even get point rewards for it. This week's mission on HackThisSite was to try to manipulate the login page in some way to log in as the administrator.
We are greeted upon starting the mission.
We see that there is a cookie set, with the authorization set to "no". So that means we need to set it to yes.
Click the login button to be greeted with a successful login. This make the login form think that we have logged in previously with the correct user credentials, so it welcomes us right on in.
