I setup an ESP8266 and WS2812B LED strip with WLED and a while back and thought it was one of the coolest ways to control a smart light, that I’ve ever tried. WLED is a web server for ESP8266/ESP32 boards that controls NeoPIxel LED strips. There is an app that works out of the box for basic controls / effects. More importantly there is a REST api, and even better it allows for UDP communication for quick updates.

Intigriti put out their third XSS challenge recently in late August 2019. I decided to try my hand on it as I’m new to Intigriti’s platform and bug hunting in general. The way it works is they put out an intentionally vulnerable webpage just waiting for your xss payload. Out of everyone who submits a correct submission they will randomly pick one researcher and award them a one year Burp License and some private program invites.
