    I am unable to spawn this box on VIP+ :(
    Wow I am a fool lol. It says "Live" but on the page there is still time to release. Disregard me :D

    *****-****** isn't rabbit hole?

  • Any nudge with foothold...

    I'm at this point as well :)

  • Wow this medium box is easier than the last 2 easy ones. Got foothold, working on user now.

  • edited December 2020

    Reminds me of one of the previous easy machines actually. Got foothold too, should be straightforward to everyone as it is very well described in a nice video out there. Anyway, wait until you finish it to say whether it's easier or not than the other two :)

  • Wow I kept searching around for priv esc. Turns out I could already read the user flag... Working on that root flag.

    Weird. This isn't the case for me.

  • i'm got user, some tips for root ?

  • I was working on Worker and got frustrated. So I decided to try this nice new one for a change of scenery. "It'll be something new and different" I thought... LOL

    Anyone able to get a shell? I pulled the user flag but haven't found a way to get a callback on my reverse shell. A nudge would be greatly appreciated

    Disregard. I had a shell the whole time. I'm just blind :lol:
    I looked at who else I should go after and then went back to the UI much like a very recent box. I see a project but unsure if this is a rabbit hole. I was thinking there might be juicy that they accidentally pushed up.

  • Learned a lot from this box, was a fun challenge and showed me some cool new things :smile:

    Any tips for user?

  • Not a very creative box....felt like I was redoing laboratory for a bit there...

    Got initial foothold, any nudges for user dd

  • User was fun.. root is driving me insane. Doesn't help that I can't seem to get an interactive shell to work..

    got foothold
    stucked on user esc
    got root

  • edited December 2020

    Still can't find a way to get D user..
    I got the /r_p but doesn't seem to be working on any user.
    Any nudges will be appreciated
    edit: rooted
    uid=0(root) gid=1001(xx) groups=1001(xx)

    any nudge for D user? @ElleuchX1 @Embargo

  • Looking to discuss. Got root flag but definitely not intended way. Never got. Shell. Lol definitely an odd box.

  • Finally rooted this machine and got the flags an unintended way. Nice box with some new learnings.

  • I got shell with g user, but got stuck afterwards. Any nudges? :)

    Hack The Box

  • can't find the root flag pretty weird

  • edited December 2020

    Hey, I can’t find anything interesting. I already searched for directories with Dirbuster... nothing. Looked for something interesting in the source code... nothing.
    I would be very thankful if someone could give me a hint to what to look for, maybe via pm.
    EDIT: received a hint :)

  • Is the machine broken as there's no root.txt anywhere?

    Not broken. There is more work to do. This is where I am at and am having some errors with my process.

    I read the user flag real easily (using one technique against the software), but don't seem to be able to get RCE (using a different technique against the same software), even though I've used this fine in other challenges. Therefore I can read a lot of things, but no shell for g or d user. Going round in circles. Anyone able to help me get back on track?

    Edit: the RCE technique worked fine - I just had bad characters in my payload. Got root, and more. Good box - definitely learnt a few things - including to not take anything for granted and keep disciplined.

  • any hints for initial foothold? send me a pm pls

  • edited December 2020

    Rooted!
    It was same like redoing the laboratory for initial part. But overall learnt an interesting technique while escalating to root.
