    got user and root. learned some neat tricks

  • Got user.txt, i was doing the p*******.txt wrong lol

  • Got root after using p**y to see what was going on in that directory. Curious if there's a way of doing that without downloading a tool.

  • Hey, Got the p*******_b***** file, and found the format B***2 but I don't know how to do next, because just changing the extention doesn't change the file format.
    Hint will be appreciate, PM ;)

  • Got the txt. Can anyone give me a hint on getting the root shell?
  • Finally got the root.txt without root shell.

    I assume everyone did the initial shell the same way upload and catch? Tons of hints in the comments if you're having trouble. Were you able to upgrade to fully interactive? Did anyone get any of the shell upgrades to work?

    ok guys, i'm stuck on where to look to see what is updating i***t and r****t files , i'm not the greatest linux user so a lot of this is new to me, any useful PM's on what i need to look for would be appreciated, given the name of the box i figured its going to relate to this program but cannot put the pieces together to work it out.

    Never mind , its just dawned on me and i've got root....

    I'm having a bit hard time to get the root.txt and root shell for few days now and I think it's time to seek some help from others who already owned this challenge. Anyone would like to help? :) I really appreciate this community that lift their brothers and sisters when stuck in the rabbit hole. Indeed a great place to learn something new.

    NVM about the root.txt. I've already read it and thanks to "sillydaddy" for the help. Now, working on root shell on this challenge.

  • i trying to get user.txt, i know what type of file password_backup but after that i can't figure out how to to turn it into something usable because all i get is file called 33

  • I am logged in on the linux machine through a shell. I am not able to 'cat' the user.txt file ,can someone help me out and PM me? I tried to change the p*******_b***** file to binairy but now I am stuck..

  • Rooted this box after beating around bush for so long. PM me for any help

  • If anyone needs help pm me !
    All the best

  • i got shell in about 15 m and i found the p_p file and i decode it and when i want to get back to my shell i found it deleted and i couldn't get another shell, the home page don't work any more, and when i got shell i missed to save the user name so now i have the password but the no user name , and i'm just gonna give up on this machine it's have been reset every 2 minutes .
    short sad story ;'(

    Hi guys - new to HTB just finished irked - doing curling but stuck after getting user shell. I can see a------a--- folder and to interesting files in there but don't know how to tackle them. I have tried moving, copying, cating, tried signatures etc but no use. Anudge will be helpful - clear

  • I have been trying to get user.txt for over 1 day now, but I cannot seem to get a shell or any other info. I think I am doing something very simple wrong which is screwing everything up. I am able to log in as the user with the password found from the secret file. Can anyone DM me for a pointer? THank you.

    Root shell after quite a long battle! Feel free to PM me for help!

  • I just got root.txt the intended way. I dont think I couldve gotten it without all the hints. It's not that easy! At least not for me.

    This box is also vulnerable to a new and dirty Ubuntu privesc. Got root.txt that way earlier today (with the help from a friend).

    stuck on the root shell I can read the root.txt file and I know what is going on in a-a folder. Any nudge on how to proceed. The suspicious switch does not have much information online on how I can tweak it.
    Edit: nevermind got it. fun way to get root shell

  • nevermind, got it. fun way to get root shell

  • Stuck with priv esc to root. I identified the I**** file around the users dir but not sure whats going on with it or how to leverage it. I also know its being called with **** but again not sure the timing or something, please help!
