Saw it was retiring and I was already working on this box. Moved my butt and grabbed root before user... this doesn't happen to me often. :) Very interesting box, made me dig out some database-fu know-how.
Thanks to @ompamo, the box had a good run
Hm, weird box. I looked into getting user a bit, got close pretty easily, including the steg part. The output of steg is what had me a bit stumped. I would love someone to PM me and tell me where I would have had to use that.

The user was really easy. That said I am enjoying the root part a lot.

Managed to get user rather fast. I know my PHP. :) Now working on root, think I have 'the file' people are talking about. I gotta admit my linux commandline know-how is hitting a bit of a wall. Still on it though!
So I got root.txt before I got user.txt... I feel like I did something the wrong way or that maybe something I did was not supposed to be possible. can someone please PM me so I can explain? It did involve that thirstyness mentioned before.
I got user a while ago and am trying to get root. I have a few attack vectors in mind, but I keep getting booted off the system (the instability). If anyone can confirm if any of them are the right direction in a PM I would appreciate it.
So far I am having a blast. I got user.txt and I got what I consider quite close to root. That said I am a bit stuck on the format of certain files. Can't really say without spoiling, anyone that can help confirm my suspicions in a PM?
