  • I'm fairly new to HTB, and I'm trying to spawn the machine for 15-20 minutes now, but it gives me an error saying, "Machine is not released yet!"
    Is it just me, or is this normal behaviour?

  • Same here, been waiting for 2 hours to get hands on this machine. But now it says I have to wait 2 more hours LOL

  • i feel like d***** has something about it

    How did you get user, I got the initial shell as a***he not sure how to become user can u guide me or give me a hint?

    Edit: Is it something related to au*****ze.php

  • I am stuck on a***he. Not getting what to do

  • looks to me like a lot of manual file reviewing looks to be the answer.

    Review:
    Foothold: OSINT.
    User: just enum and remove certain doubts you might have.
    Root: who the **** came up with this standard.

  • I'm clearly missing something really really obvious as I can't get so much as a toe-hold.

  • Got the shell but stuck with the ap*** user !
    found a way to change the ad*** password and logged in and got a revshell to find that what i did was useless!
    is it all about my**l ?

    Find a username and find out his password...

  • Got user, working on root. I think I might be headed in a rabbit hole.....

  • Got user, for root I think I see the possibilities. Do I have to create a **** for this to work, or is it really much, much simpler?

  • I have user, stuck on rooting stage. Could anyone give small hint ?

  • stuck on getting the user... any nudges where to look?

  • Got user in a matter of minutes. Root is giving me trouble.

  • Spoiler Removed

  • Got foothold but couldn't find info for user. Anyone give me a hint plz?

    Spoiler Removed

  • got user roots being a bitch

  • edited March 28

    I also have user, stuck at getting root. There seems like an tempting weakness in one of the first places everyone would look but I can't figure out turning it in to privesc.

  • i think its a ploy to distract us

  • Just got root, can confirm it is not a ploy to distract you

  • Privesc part is frustrating...

  • Finally got root! The last bit was more akin to a medium box. Definitely learned a lot though :)

    EXTREMELY

    zweeden

  • If I am on the right path for the root then I think I will need some hint here about the privesc part using the provided stuff. Not able to figure out even after lot of googling.

  • For Privesc:

    After a basic enum, you will find a specific command that you can run.

    Then, start with a sample code, maybe hello-world.

    Then, try to modify the sample, think about what you can run, how it works, what you can add. Once you understand how it works, you will be able to root.

    And im sorry if the above message spoil too much.

  • Stucked on the br********* user. Got the pass from m****l but it does not work. Maybe changed in D*****l ? Someone to help in private ?

  • Any nudges on the user would be much appreciated.
