    Why does starting the machine always fail?
    ("An Error occured")

  • Wow blood already and I can't even spawn the machine

  • edited June 26

    EDIT: Got user.txt

    user really easy. Root had to get around an error but learned about a new tool :).

    Edit: DM for nudges (:

  • Root!! very easy box.. feel free to PM

  • Also on root, user was easy with a little nudge.

  • Interesting box. Thanks @bertolis

    • I just rooted the machine, it is a very simple machine, if you need any help I would be happy to help.

  • Rooted :)

    Such a Easy Box.

    Totally Straight Forward for the user, But not for the Root.

    Ping me if you need help.

    Any nudges for root? Checked for netstat and found something interesting but nothing useful came out of it

  • Anyone else having an error spawning the machine? I had user and then started to get an error. Can't get access again.

    Can't spawn instances or when I manage to generate one, the box is not responding (yes, I am connected to the Release Arena VPN). I keep getting "SERVER INTERNAL ERROR: Serve() returned a null response" errors all the time.

  • got user, i thought it is something way more complicated than that.

    stuck on root, i would like a nudge

    Stop and restart the machine until this works. If you get this error, there is something not working.

  • Rooted! Really enjoyed this box.

    User: Check the ports and google google google :)

    Root: Check the ports again and one should sort of stand out. The right google search will lead you there.

    If anyone needs any more nudges. Feel free to PM :)

    Good luck!

  • Ooooh, very sneaky... I like it!

  • Thanks @bertolis for creating an Android box. It's a change from the usual Windows and Linux machines.

  • im getting a 500 error while trying to enumerate a certain port, im not sure if this is expected behavior for the endpoint or if i have to just expand on this path

  • Hey, Can someone give me a nudge on root?

  • Why when i try to S** into this machine it just keeps saying Permission denied (password,keyboard-interactive).?? I found the creds and yet it still doesn't work? Also been stuck at foothold for 2 damn hours just because i kept getting Serve() error so i had to restart the machine to fix it -_ -

    I'm getting the same thing. Thanks for the tip - will restart a few times and see if it lets up.

    I wasted too much time yesterday wondering why this box was rated as easy only to find out today that nothing worked because the box was hosed. Even resetting it yesterday yielded no difference. Sigh.

    Once I started it up and tried the same thing again and it worked this time, I rooted the box in about 30 minutes. Pretty neat regardless.

  • Just rooted this one.

    Initial Foothold:
    Enum everything, make sure your getting a FULL picture, after you find the right info it should lead straight into user.

    User:
    If you found the foothold you should have this.

    Root:
    Took some research and a nudge from a friend, sometimes when you hit a wall you just gotta dig under. Take a look at the at the information you have and search for the hole.

    im glad i asked haha. thank you!

  • I had connectivity issues yesterday as well. I had a different fix for both times so hopefully someone finds this helpful:

    1) The first time it happened: restarting the VPN connection didn't work so I ended up switching VPN servers and that did the trick.

    2) The second time it happened: restarting the VPN connection worked.

    I didn't have any issues today and hopefully no one else does.
