Part II - Challenge hunting
This part of the book can be read from end to end as a hacking guide. Used in that way you will be walked through various types of web vulnerabilities and learn how to exploit their occurrences in the Juice Shop application. Alternatively you can start hacking the Juice Shop on your own and use this part simply as a reference and source of hints in case you get stuck at a particular challenge.
In case you want to look up hints for a particular challenge, the following tables lists all challenges of the OWASP Juice Shop grouped by their difficulty and in the same order as thery appear on the Score Board.
The challenge hints found in this release of the companion guide are compatible with v8.7.2 of OWASP Juice Shop.

In case you are getting frustrated with a particular challenge, you can refer to Appendix - Challenge solutions where you find explicit instructions how to successfully exploit each vulnerability. It is highly recommended to use this option only as a last resort. You will learn a lot more from hacking entirely on your own or relying only on the hints in this part of the book.
