  • This was an excellent machine. Thanks for the challenge. User took me about 6-7h and I had to utilize some hints from this thread to orient my approach after I found the first vulnerability. Root took about 6h as well which should've been much qui…

  • Got user flag in about 20 mins and then spent around 1,5h slamming find and reading through lists of files looking for something out of the ordinary. More linux knowledge would have made this much less painful and slow so time to update the good old…
