I have searched everywhere...

Searched for hidden files, directories, and drives. What am I missing?

    SPOILER :tired_face:

  • are you saying that root.txt is NOT in the Desktop of Administrator. The rules say that is where it is supposed to be.

  • But it's not showing up there on Jeeves, that's what he's saying.

  • I am still stuck trying to get rights to see the directory/priv esc. I got shell, i got meterpreter, I cracked a file and tried all of those passwords. II am not sure if these are rabbit holes or part of the solution.

  • I think they are part of the rabbit hole, but cannot find the right entry.

  • Thank you, @blobbo. Finally got what I was after. Very cool what the creator did with the thing. I had no idea that was possible on Windows.

    The rules stand with this machine, I wasn't thinking outside the box... so to speak!

  • I'm also having the same problem as above. Can't figure out what to do with the information I've gotten in the file.

  • give a further read through the forum, theres more than one jeeves thread and the answer to this question is there

  • ok ok - been at it for a while now - been down a heap of rabbit holes - leant heaps - way too much about somethings - but i guess that is part of the fun..but...cant get priv on jeeves - i think i have everything i need - got reverse shell, meterpreter, tried all the exploits but no love to priv esc 8-(...got user.txt, found the uncrackable file - but cracked it - which was great fun !!!! - found the contents and from the thread it says it obvious what to do when you look at the content - one will stand out ? i have tried all the psexec pth etc etc - just cant see how to use the contents to priv esc - i know there are a few more hurdles once i get admin to find root.txt so can someone PM me so i can move to the next challenge and learn like we all want to do ? i am sure it is something that i am obvious ? @hackthebox6969

  • re-check your steps...or perhaps check your assumptions.

  • @ Saoirse - your a champion - thanks helps - got the final flag.....this was a great challenge and worth the time for those still pulling your hair out....learnt heaps......everything is in the forum - in riddles and you need to read things several times but worth it...i need to get the Aussies up in the country ratings... so now onto root Bashed

  • If it takes you more than a few minutes to crack, you're either trying to crack the wrong hash or using the wrong wordlist

  • Someone can give me a hint about how I get access to the machine? I've found port 50000 but I don't know how to access. Help a noob, please haha...

    Dont forget you can do simple things to see what ports do. Like netcat to it and send it a hello. See what it says. Sometimes they respond and tell you what they are.
