BSCP exam bug

Vasiliy | Last updated: Oct 30, 2023 09:44PM UTC

Hello! I had an BSCP exam finished few minutes ago and I failed it. I solved first app in one hour and other time I spent on second app, but can't go even through the first step, I think it might be some issue on the app's side. I had an app with "/resources/js/tracking.js" file, which I suppose meant to be vulnerable to cache poisoning/host header poisoning(as it always was in labs) , but in fact, there is no web cache using in this app and in attempt to exploit host header I got a "Invalid hostname" error. There was no other functionality in app on this stage, except standard search and password reset, but those weren't vulnerable to anything. I found post with similar problem: https://forum.portswigger.net/thread/bscp-exam-ddc18d29e03d6cc8474bbfd711. As you don't provide public answer to this, I hope you will help me understand too whether it was a bug or the app was working correctly. Looking forward to your reply and assistance. Best regards, Vasiliy

Hi Vasiliy, We have just checked your specific exam instance and are happy that there were no issues and that both apps were indeed solvable.

Hi, I also just finished the test and the same thing happened to me, the TRACKING.JS file appears but no cache site exists on the web. It also returned the INVALID HOSTNAME error when using certain headers. I don't know if it is my error or PortSwigger's error.
