    Got user.

    For people having problems/getting nothing after getting creds : yeah they can be useful somewhere but you must enumerate and read some files to better understand where you can use them :). You should wonder why there are creds here and for what they are needed/supposed to do

    Sorry if I say too much, it's my first time giving my opinion and advice here xD

    PM if needed

  • Got user now too.

    Go going for root... but didn't found anything yet. Can someone PM me a nudge?

    Silence, i'll hack you!! ;-)

  • rooted

    PM for nuggets

    Hack The Box

  • Initial: Fastest foothold I've ever got. 2 steps to get an easy shell.
    User: Read files carefully, ignore rabbit holes and RTFM.
    Root: You should spot the method fast, try it locally to understand how to make it work.

  • Finally.
    Foothold: DDoS? Really? Check the description before run something!
    User: check that same place where you've found those creds. Make yourself familiar with capabilities of the service and ask yourself what permissions should you have to view that content.
    Root: was mindblowing for me. It's right in front of your eyes once you logged in, but you just cannot violate args. Fortunately, there is a way to substitute one thing with another and use the same command to get a shell

  • I'm a bit stuck... I've found the place mentioned in the interesting file, just can't find anything further, not sure what to do with the creds...

    if you cannot see something it doesn't mean it not exist

  • Rooted.

    Feel free to PM. :)

    took a moment to understand what you mean, figured it out now, thank you for the tip!

  • Finally got user thanks to @D3Fix and @olsv . As always something stupid i missed, also found cheetsheet and read it and found another way to get there. funny

  • got root, it was fun.

  • rooted!

    Much thanks to @rholas and @idomino when I was stuck at user.

  • Cool box. It was nice and straight forward from start to finish. Perfect way to spend an hour on a lazy sunday. ^_^

    Hack The Box

    Still stucked with the credentials found/cracked. I have viewed all the files contents within the n*****o directory for additional information/hints but I did not find anything suspicious.

    Anyone who can PM for a nudge into the right direction? Thnx

    EDIT: Thanks @YaSsInE for the nudge!!

    This was fun. Owning user was a bit tricky at first but looking back it was a rather straightforward process.

    • Hint for user: read configs and enumerate
    • Hint for root: read the code and gtfo

    Feel free to PM me for help!

    PM me on Discord: t0thkr1s#0880

  • Thanks to @YaSsInE rooted it, i understood that i need somehow to stop it.... but never thought this way..... Funny machine... learned quite a lot from rooting.

  • Hints for user :
    -Once you are in, read the manual. Read it till you find something interesting.

    Hints for root :

    -The answer is in front of you the moment you get user. I went down a rabbit hole and I can understand why people might overthink it, even despite checking GTFO Bins. You need a little trick not so obvious.

  • Rooted this box!!

    • Foothold: No hints needed, it's too easy!
    • User: The first obvious thing you'll find is probably not what you need; Read the contents of the files in the n****** directory and you'll get there...
    • Root: Find an obvious file for your way to root. It took me unnesasary time because of a less thing.....

    Thanks to my fellow countryman @ToneDef :)

  • Rooted! Once the port issues settled down it was a fun box! Thank you @jkr!

    Tips:

    Foothold: read other comments posted here, enumerate and you are in

    User: Ditto, read the manual, understand how things works and are set up this will point you to where you need to go

    Root: GTFO Bins and just seeing what is right there is all you need.

    General advice: keep it simple, enumerate, read, google, take stock of what you have (often right in front of you).

  • Rooted :P
    For the user you should read a config file and the manual of the service, only the thing that matters.

    For root, Swagshop's root had almost the same approach as this one.

  • Great box, finally rooted. Learn to remember my ssh toolbox
