  • Finally fixed all backdoors. First of all, a lot of thanks and huge respect to @0xdf for this box, had a LOT of fun and promoted my skils. The challenge is all about observing things and asking questions like "why", "where", "when" etc.

    Before you read further, I strongly advice you to try pass the challenge by yourself. It can be confusing, but not impossible, If you do it on your own you will get some good growth. But if you are really, REALLY stuck, here are some nudges

    1 - it rises from the dead, but why and where...
    2 - strongholds always break from inside
    3 - some persons tend to use your things even if they dont belong to them
    4 - who gave this guy a weapon!?
    5 - same as 1
    6 - something is wrong about that animal...
    7 - the traitor never stops making holes in the castle
    8 - only greek god knows what happens here

    if it contains spoilers, delete the message please.

    Good luck and have fun! \m/

    solved! thanks.

  • I like the idea. Right now they are all partially remediated or fully but it's very difficult to track which number is which backdoor and it even seems random... i reset the box, i get right away "Issue 1 is partially remediated". The one that was "Fully remediated" goes back to "not remediated" after i have removed another backdoor
