About Me

A bit about me…


Hello, and welcome to my site. I am Victor Coil, a cybersecurity enthusiast actively seeking an entry-level position in the Cybersecurity field. I currently hold a bachelor’s degree in Cybersecurity, CompTIA Security+, Cisco CCNA, and am currently studying for the CompTIA CySA+ Certification. I have also furthered my education through a handful of master courses. Outside of the classroom, I participated in the Cybersecurity competitions Hivestorm and the National Cyber League, where I finished in the top 3% of the team’s competition.

My Vision

To become an exceptional Blue Teamer in the Cybersecurity field. I strive to continuously enhance my technical skills and knowledge to be able to effectively defend organizations. I also aim to use this website to share projects, valuable lessons, and advice. In the chance of being able to raise awareness and/or help others with the projects and reports that I make.

Writeups / Reports

Reports from Tryhackme and Hackthebox rooms

The CVE Number has a link to the actual report created by MITRE while the Name of the Machine/Room is a link to my writeup.

These writeups help me work on my reporting, keeping my technical skill sharp, developing the mindset of an attacker which is crucial for a defender, and being educated on vulnerabilities and exploits used in the past.
