    Ok got root... 😀 My tip is to read through this thread for root... Once you escape find out how to *Spoiler Removed - Arrexel* of a particular prog that may give out information then check to see what else might have those same capabilities... There's easy way to check every file in a directory or sub directory you probably use every time you want to maybe see every file in a path or every file with a certain extension... Hopefully not too much of a spoiler

    Quick question - Were people about to get logged in / root shell? Or only able to view root.txt ?

    I did it for getting access to root.txt, but also read that people get root shell.

  • Finally got root!

    This is something I have definitely learned a lot from and will check in the future.

    As a wise man once said ::rootdance::

  • Got root yesterday, Its a very nice box.

    Thanks! finally got it, honestly... now I feel dumb hahaha

  • WOW!!!!! Just Wow! If it weren't for this forum, I never would have completed this box. Thank you all for your helpful posts!

  • I was going to be upset about this box, but now after getting root, I actually enjoyed it.

    It wasn't so much a puzzle as having to solution be something that I've never seen/used before, which is one of the reasons I love these boxes.

    I'd seen the different pieces of how to own this box before, but the way they were obfuscated and tweaked was really cool.

    Thank you to those who helped me through it. :smile:

    Good box.

  • And Rooted !

    First off thanks to those for the tips - I'd say all the tips here are usefull without giving the game away

    As for the Box

    At first it irritated me but i reckon a lot of the problems i had with initial foothold were down to constant resets and i presume some bruteforcing going on. From what ive seen so far brute forcing and reverse shells arent often needed - the boxes are designed to test yous skills in other ways.

    Once i got going - what a trip ! this one is a real learning curve and certainly made me think !

    I cant add anymore hints as they have allready been posted in this thread, but feel free to PM for hints .

  • finally rooted
    nice box
    but i'm pretty curious now to know if and how theres a way to get a full root shell
    if anyone know's, PM me pls

  • I'm also close to the end. I can see the file, I can understand, how capable it is, but ... I'm looking into the source and wondering, how is it possible to make it to read file of your choice (or at least root.txt)?

    Got root.
    Nice to learn some new (old) functionality about Linux. But the way to get to the root flag is to simple, especially compared to the effort for getting the user flag.

    I'm not very good with priv esc, would someone PM me a hint? Hopefully an educational hint, thanks :)

  • The traversal hint was great, gotta think about the functions...now stuck on the 'capabilities' of a certain program...no idea where/how to use it...

  • Same here. I did search on the topic but still didn't managed to get root.txt

  • Rooted...

    The box is quite unconvention.

    Shoutout to my bros who helped me in the box @crysthoffer @Sp4rtan, couldn't have done it without you guys.

    PM or telegram me (on the same username) for help.

    HI,

    I found the key for the user M******. But I'm unable to login with this key, I get the error -> permission denied. Is this a rabbit hole or I'm doing a mistake?

    Thank you

    Did it. I'm so stupid :)

  • Any pointers on escaping?

  • Hey, I got ssh but I'm stuck at privesc, can someone point me the right direction or is available to talk about the machine?

    Already escaped, found the file but I'm stuck.

    Thanks,

  • Rooted, great box! PM for help :)

  • Jeez, nuts, Got em! Shout out to Strawman: Great box,learned something new! And a shout to #m3ssI69 for the great hint. Feel free to pm me for hints, passing the goodwill.
