  • Spent far too long on the initial guessing game. At the end of the day, I suppose it certainly is quite realistic, but I was majorly overcomplicating it. I would have rated this box closer to the "Easy" end of ratings as far as user goes, …

  • [email protected]:~# This was tough. Like, too tough. As in, I won't be doing something like this again for a WHILE, tough. :D Thanks @MrR3boot and @b14ckh34rt for owning me, and also for improving my heap exp. skills! Root was especially hard for me …

  • Working on the heap now. I think this is going to be the end of me, lol.

  • Type your comment> @scud78 said: (Quote) Well said. This box is a monster if you aren't able to rely on some of your own prior knowledge and capabilities. That being said, if you are a "newbie" and looking to give this box a try, I hig…

  • Easiest machine that has been released on HTB in quite a while. In truth, I'm thankful – I think it's very beneficial for the newcomers, even though some of the more seasoned users likely finished this very quickly. Even though I can't really say I …

  • Type your comment> @clubby789 said: (Quote) I'm with @clubby789 on this one. The "Insane" machines tend to stick around for nearly ~180 days or so (from what I've observed, don't quote me on that) while some "Easy" and "…
  • Type your comment> @scud78 said: (Quote) I would disregard this. It would appear there are some teams working together on the machine, and therefore information is likely to be passed around as a result. After some brief OSINT & digging, I a…

  • Yeah, I'm with you @AcroTiger. The t**** docs gave me nothing to go off of. I understand exactly what everyone is referring to, and I understand how I am intended to communicate with it, but without a valid endpoint, how am I ever supposed to know w…

  • This is a 20 point challenge? Am I going insane?
  • Type your comment> @peek said: (Quote) If that's the case then hire away my good sir, I'll be waiting... 😂
  • To those of you who are stumped by this, Googling something like "temple symbol crypto" is enough to get everything you need to complete this challenge. Try harder...

  • Rooted. Nice one @clubby789, although I believe there is an "easy" (and potentially unintended) method for root that should be patched if possible as it sorta ruined that bit for me. I'm going to go back and do it the (what I believe to be…
    in Obscurity Comment by farbs December 2019
  • Rooted. I got a root shell, and I used the exact same syntax to obtain it about ~13-14 times over. I reset the box twice. Super unreliable and not sure how to MAKE IT reliable. I didn't change my methods for running anything the entire time. Did the…

    in Control Comment by farbs November 2019
  • Got user! That was actually a ton of fun. Thank you @rholas and @ALK for improving my Windows knowledge, and also to @TRX for making me feel stupid :D
    in Control Comment by farbs November 2019
  • Solid machine. User may have been a bit much for some new guys, but overall, I thought everything was decently well thought out. Nothing was too difficult. Foothold: CVE User: Enumerate. The creds aren't useless... Config files can also be useful. …

  • I am not going to guarantee your performance issues will improve purely based on your current description, as there could be a number of different factors affecting your levels of connectivity. However, as someone who currently has VIP, I believe I …
  • Type your comment> @Shad0wQu35t said: (Quote) Yeah. I, too, saw the vulnerability during initial enum, and it worried me quite a bit for this very reason. Oh well, not the end of the world. Just a bit disappointing.
    in Traverxec Comment by farbs November 2019
  • Just started this machine, and promptly stopped lol. WAY too many issues, not even worth my time. I'll come back next week or something.
    in Traverxec Comment by farbs November 2019
  • Got around to this yesterday and rooted it. Looked past the first bit for user out of eagerness. Taught me to enumerate harder again. Hints on here are already enough, as previously stated. Good luck everyone!

  • The samba version is clearly vulnerable here. This particular version, samba 3.0.20, is vulnerable to RCE. You could tell that by running searchsploit samba 3.0.20 and getting the resulting exploit. From there, one can obtain the exploit by navigat…
  • So far, I've spent more time setting up a Windows VM just to DO THIS BOX than I have actually working on the box itself. Not sure if this is intended or not, but I spent the last 8 hours trying to figure out how to do it in Linux and it doesn't work…

  • Rooted. Pretty disappointed with this one. Thanks to the creator, regardless.
    in Wall Comment by farbs September 2019
  • I may be interested. Feel free to PM.
  • What's up with some of the poor reviews on this? It was really straightforward and simple -- I actually really liked it a lot. Thank you for the box, @guly. Hints... User: Enumerate the web service. Check out different web directories to get back…
