  • Got user after fighting with this for almost a month! And then rooted within an hour after :lol: Great box @0xEA31, you stumped me for quite a while :smile:

  • Well, finally rooted. The foothold for user was by no means a stretch of the imagination. Root on the other hand... Jesus Christ. I honestly can't possibly recommend this box to anyone. If you have multiple days to simply set aside and dedicate so…

  • Got user, and found the foothold for root. I know what I need to do now. This box is phenomenal @MrR3boot, nice work.

  • This is a good place to start - https://forum.hackthebox.eu/discussion/1467/machine-submission-checklist#latest From there, @Tilia makes a good argument. Creating a box is extremely variable and also heavily based on 1) prior experience, 2) intuiti…

  • What have you tried so far to resolve this? Some common resolutions for this problem that I've seen in the past are: 1) Simply restart your VPN connection (make sure you kill the process manually/re-run it again). 2) Re-download your connection p…

  • Click on the machine you want the image for, and then click "Info Card". This will bring up a much higher resolution image of the default box avatar as well as its stats. This is what I use for all of my writeups.
  • Root was a blast! Solid machine. Go back to the basics :)

  • This is great! For those curious, http://pentest.ws has a "Shells" tab that does the exact same thing in-browser! But for keeping it simple and remaining in console, your solution is awesome too :) Kudos!

  • From what I understand, they tend to stay true to the "order of the list" for the most part, but if there is a box that would fit better into the flow of the most current releases, then something else might be decommissioned so the new box…

  • For user: Web enumeration and figuring out port 443 are going to be essential. B*** S**** is your friend. Root: The "changes" comment made above by @brasky is a good one. You can easily insert your own code into "the file" as we…

  • Hi there, It seems you're trying to access a machine that is retired, but isn't listed in the "VIP" section of Hack The Box. You can still access this box, however, with the new Beta version of VIP. Here are some instructions for downloa…
  • Hi guys! Working on getting through this one at the moment but just working on enum atm... Found the "Missing Command!" Am I on the right track? Minor/non-spoiler hints appreciated as well :)

  • This machine is awesome! Haven't "gotten" root yet, but I have my notes written and know what I need to do once I'm off work, so consider this box pwned! Thanks for the box @no0ne and @Adamm, it was legit!
    in Kryptos Comment by farbs June 26
  • Rooted. Took longer than expected with work days lasting so long recently. Only worked on the box ~20-30 minutes at a time. Still, smooth and simple and I'm thankful for a break from some of these head banging machines. Props to @manulqwerty and @G…
