Devel - Privilege Escalation (without Metasploit)

Hey guys,

I’m new to this and was looking for ways to perform privilege escalation without Metasploit. I’m looking to go through the OSCP and doing Hack the Box to practice.

I have access to the Devel box, but as a low level user. Curious how to privilege escalate without Metasploit.

You use the same techniques, they’re just not automated. Have a look at PowerUp (part of PowerSploit) to see how a few of the things are done, for example.
