My name is Maximilian Hildebrand aka m10x, I’m 23 years old and I study computer science @ TU Dortmund.

My hobby is IT-Security and I’m also an IT-Security working student. I like to compete at Capture The Flags and I try to do short but understandable Videos and WriteUps.

I do this as repetition and hope that some of you might find them useful!

I’ve spend most my time @ HackTheBox and achieved the rank Pro Hacker with ~50 Owned Systems.
