  • Rooted. What a battle. That is the hardest live box I have done to-date. You are a genius @gbyolo. I don't know how you do it, but props for creating a menacing machine. I loved it. To everyone thinking of starting this, be warned... This is the lo…

  • Rooted the intended way after rooting it the unintended way the first time. Not necessarily a full-fledged "easy" box for beginners, a good learning experience nonetheless. Edit: It appears there are some misconceptions associated with m…

  • Services don't even reveal anything at this point. Have tried switching servers. I can see the open ports, but enumeration displays everything as closed or broken. Going to wait until tomorrow. What a shame. Edit: Box was hosed. Go easy, people...

  • It appears to be an issue with OneTwoPunch and Unicorn scan in general having fussy compatibility when operating over a VPN connection. See this thread for details - https://github.com/superkojiman/onetwopunch/issues/5 Additionally, when attemptin…

  • So far, even harder than PlayerTwo or Rope. This machine is destroying me. Kudos @gbyolo for creating a nasty box. You've got me beat. Not sure about the "Hard" categorization though – this one is a doozy! Don't have user yet, but I think…

  • 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 …

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • 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. …
