This challenge involves sending a GET request with POST parameters to a specific endpoint. Although unconventional, this technique might help bypass certain filters. Initially, you'll use curl to achieve this, and then proceed to write a script to automate the task.

In the provided video, the process is demonstrated step-by-step. The key point is to send a GET request to /pentesterlab with a POST parameter "key" set to "please." By using curl with the --data option and forcing the method to GET, you can achieve this. This method can be particularly useful for bypassing filters that incorrectly assume GET requests do not contain POST parameters.
