Cache

It’s interesting to see people talk about user and lateral movement. Depending on how you did the box, you could do either user first after you get a foothold. You don’t have to go in a specific order. However one holds the flag and the other is on the path to bigger things. You can definitely get root first and then back track.

Hi,
I suddenly found the /por**l directory is enabled, it was disabled yesterday… which is the original state?

Rooted, need help, let me know.

Rooted.

Very fun box, I learnt a couple new things and have some new tricks up my sleeve now.

I’m interested to hear how others got root first. I think I took intended paths.

Is the portal supposed to be enabled or disabled? Yesterday disabled, earlier today enabled, now disabled again. Had a working exploit but now I don’t know if it’s the intended way…

I Thank you all for your time on the machine… @AwkwardUnicorn @limelight @itachi982 @sk4 @fr0ster @jiggle @D8ll0 @DaWoschbar @skunk @41fr3d0 @Dark0 @SneakyHedgehog @3l33t @Termopan @hg8 @beorn

I hope you have used intended way to exploit root because that is fun?? (mount method is also great and valid but really easy)

And please give your precious review of machine on HTB site.

found the portal, bypass-ed the authentication… trying injection to extract vital info which can bring me further… anyone can provide nudges??

i got 3w-data , and stuck. can not find anything useful

switch user, you have already found the creds earlier on which is useful now, but not useful in user flag.

ROOTED
lol what a journey
i spent more time fighting resets . Like i had to repeat over and over again because the box was getting reset evry 5 mins

For the shell like one of the members mentioned there is a way not so intrusive like the RCE .So i didnt use it .

Root was nice ,a well know technique a little google will give you what you need .

@ASHacker cool box!

I would like to try it too, but the portal is always offline, can anyone stop breaking the site?

@luca76 unfortunately is like that the site is stable for 5 mins .So you have limited time and repeat 1000 times .: (
But apart from that the box is really cool and like always people spoil it a bit

yes nothing to say on the box and very funny, I’ll try again this afternoon, now it’s impossible to work on it

need nudges in bypassing h** login page…

Rooted!!! this machine.
Thanks to my teammate @Centip3d3 for the nudges.

So my little advice is “txt is superior to py” For everyone sake please use the non destructive way in rather than ruining everyone’s game. Root was breeze and enjoyable.

Just got root, thanks to @Zard and @Dark0 for the nudge.
I have never knew the blue whale and the cache can do this kind of magic…
