Academy STACK-BASED BUFFER OVERFLOWS

I am at the last lab currently and I managed to run overflow with 2 different payloads which is all good and fun, but both shells that I get from these payloads are still for user htb-student.... It does not escalate the privilege to root.. am I doing something wrong?

  • do you know how to get the answer of this question.

    Submit the size of the stack space after overwritting the EIP as the answer. (Format: 0x00000)

    It's in generating shellcode section

  • info proc stat
    OR
    info proc status

  • How would you calculate the values given from those commands? Cannot seem to get the right answer... maybe formatting issues?

  • I think its in KBs you need to convert it to Bytes or vice versa don't remember

  • do you can listening shell from machine?? i'm stuck in that
