  • Man, definitely a bit stumped on how to get user. Im enjoying digging deep into the t****t installation and doing some hardcore hunting. Been reading all the docs which ive honestly never really done before, Found some interesting things, just not t…

  • Well it took me 2 days to privesc from user1 -> user2 because I overlooked some simple things. Super cool trick to be done though. Each step of this box has beat me up pretty bad lol, but I am so glad I pursued through it. Edit: Rooted. Really h…

  • rooted. That was a fun box. My hint would be that there are definitely ways around a certain thing being turned off. Youll have to read to figure out why. From there, it is very straight forward with normal enumeration. Nothing too crazy. Very much…

  • Rooted. Not particularly easy. Definitely a new technique learned for root. Need to play around with that some more. All together pretty brutal box in my opinion but worth it in the end

  • Initial foothold wasnt too bad, now kinda stuck on privesc. So far cool box, very enjoyable
    in Magic Comment by holsick April 19
  • rooted! wasnt too bad today. pretty straight forward attack path overall and good resources online. No need for any restarts or reboots on root

  • Ya, had to call it quits for the day on the way to root since my connection kept dying. Interesting and easy user though. oh well im sure itll be better in a day or two.

  • So far super fun and a really hard challenge for me. Havnt gotten the flags yet but managed to finally get a stable shell. Having fun figuring out how to escalate and feel like my windows knowledge is leveling up. I have creds for the next user but…

  • rooted very straight forward the whole way and really fun. Lots of great hints in the forum as well. Learned something new with root and thought it was pretty sweet. Definitely did remind me of a previous box which helped a bit.

    in Sauna Comment by holsick February 15
