is not a valid subnet

Just a slight annoyance from a network engineer working through HTB Academy’s Penetration Tester path…

Within the courseware, there are many mentions of the subnet/network. There is no such thing as a subnet - instead, what’s being listed is a valid IP address found within the subnet which ranges from -

Because the content here is so outstanding, I thought I’d point out this (glaring to a network engineer) mistake in hopes that someone at HTB corrects it.

If the scope of the attack in a module is ‘any possible target whose IP address begins with 172.16.5’ then either list it as, or just say ‘any host with an IP address of 172.16.5.x’ - but for the sake of technical correctness, my hope is that references to the invalid ‘subnet’ will be removed.
