Reverse Shell

A reverse shell is a type of connection in which the vulnerable target machine initiates a connection to the computer of the attacker. As the connection is initiated by the vulnerable target, it can evade firewalls and other security measures that are in place.

The firewall of Hacking-Lab is blocking outgoing traffic, except to the client VPN network. Thus, VPN is required to use reverse shell in a Hacking-Lab challenge.
