Hey konkots,

Welcome to the Academy and the Forums. I can only really give you my opinion on the path I have taken, especially without knowing your prior experience.

I am currently 13 modules in to the Bug Bounty Hunter Path. I would definitely recommend the Linux and Networking fundamental modules if you have no experience. But other than that I think the path does a good job by starting with fundamental and easy modules to get you up to speed.

Someone else may be able to give you insight into the other paths.

Your advice is very userful and i would like to thank you a lot for your answer. I also think that the linux and network core is required for cybersecurity.

To get started with playing HTB Boxes, if you are using your own VM, you need to download the ovpn file from the website. To download it, you need to click on “Connect To HTB” and click on Machines. Then, click on OpenVPN, and select a server closest to you. Download the .ovpn file, and in terminal write “sudo openvpn <.ovpn file name>” to connect to VPN. Or, if you have Pwnbox, start a instance of it and connect to the desired machine.
