  • I am officially done with this machine, used the same exploit everyone is using to gain foothold but kept getting RST packets. Have no idea how to bypass it. If any has the solution please PM me. thanks

    Hack The Box

  • Got Root. This box was so challenging. First I'd like to say that the complexity of it was quite the experience, so good work @OscarAkaElvis. Secondly, thank you to @ninpox for the help, your hints helped me not give up.

    I learned a lot on this box. What a wild ride.

  • Rooted. Ctf-ish box, but one of the very best out there.
    Well made, good job !

  • Thank you for the box @OscarAkaElvis it was a ton of fun!!

  • Anyone can kick me to the top? I am able to read the message from the Gods but can't go beyond. Tried a couple of techniques but didn't work. Thanks!

  • Finally got user.txt ! That was a pretty good box so far, lots of stuff all over the place, learned a lot !
    I see a bunch of files laying around from other users, so I'll try root later, when the box can be reseted.

  • @xenofon keep digging, that was just the very first step. I am a bit confused with all those names, but I'd say you stepped off Crete and are now in Olympia

  • @OscarAkaElvis thank you and well done on the box, great fun throughout, lots of increments, suspense! spawned novel ideas (for me) to grep -i rockyou. (because it's hot enough here darnit) ;) learned stuff...

    10:10 would pwn again.

  • Hi, guys.

    I am still stuck on "crete island", I read the response package carefully, and I know that what I need to look for. I tried a lot of exploits, but I was failed.

    Could anyone PM me to give me a hint?

    Thank you.

  • I too am very confused on crete island. I'm unsure what I'm supposed to be looking for and or what route I should be pursuing. Could someone please PM me a hint/some reading material so I can learn what to do? Thanks

    What tools do you know of to scan web services? Take what you get right off the bat from that and do some research on it. Does something come back that does not normally come back when using said tool?

    (PM'ed) what have you got so far with regard to enumeration?

    Just a tip for someone. If you cannot pass the "web" challenge, probably you are not in EU or US.

    You can launch an Kali instance in US or EU area in AWS, then, it will work.

  • i am trying to crack the challenge Lernaean [by Arrexel] but i wont able to get any idead please help me out

  • i got web user shell, and i got the password from cap file, but i've no idea what's next. can anyone shed some lights ? or i'm on rabbit hole ?.

  • @kecebong I also found this the hardest step. You need to guess where you can use the data from this file. Review every seemingly unimportant info you have enumerated, and compare results from the initial enumeration with other files you received together with the ntework trace.
    And don't be too eager to dig ;-) into one specific service already - there are other things to investigate also!

    @kekra thanks man tried to guess and finally got root!.
    i learned a lot on this box, nice @OscarAkaElvis thanks!

  • "Step 2" is driving me up the wall. I have lots of "seemingly unimportant" information and trying to work out which bits to use is killing me!

    I have the pwd to the file but if there is one inside the now-"decrypted" data I've missed it.

    Note: I am not going to be available much in September.

    Happy to help people but PLEASE explain your problem in as much detail as possible! If you say vague things like "It's not working", I cant help. This isn't Twitter so my DMs are always open.

  • the box unstable , i reseting the box and i cant get reverse shell

    Damn, this thing was a real challenge. @OscarAkaElvis put some thought into this one, definitely learned a lot. Would recommend 10/10.

    // Edit: Finding the entry point to hades was actually the hardest part imo. If you never heard of the required technique you're lost af.

    I'd heard of the technique and even have an idea of how to get it to work but it keeps failing :-).

  • I'm looking for help from Athena on the Way to Rhodes and I'm stuck. What am I missing?

  • Finally rooted! Learned so much from this journey. :)

  • Rooted. Probably my favorite box on the site so far. Feel free to PM me for a nudge at any of the stages if anyone gets stuck. Mad props to the creator also, this was the best storyboard for a box I've done and at each step I learned something cool and new.
