Got the user.txt already but cannot pwn the system. Does anyone kindly enough to share a little how to pwn the system? :smiley:

I don’t think anyone will share a hint on the forums, although you maybe be able to get a hint in the slack channel if you ask :D.

Hinting is ok at the forums also. Feel free. Just no direct spoilers

got it hahahaha just got the wrong exploit. found another one and it works wahahaha
hopefully this is not a direct spoilers. Please admin delete it if this is considered as direct spoiler. Thanks.
