Haystack

any hints lol stuck in inside the dumps of data

Was able to access on higher port, now getting a 502, anyone else too?

Stuck at rubber band stuff lol

Not finding anything for root atm. User was fairly easy.

Hint: Port 80 isn’t worthless.

Yay. Was really feeling like we were past due for another CTF box! :stuck_out_tongue:

I’ve dumped the entire database and so far found nothing useful.

Dirscanned the sites by IP and hostname, zero results and seems like no virtualhost routing. Haven’t found any software commonly exploitable.

Should I just keep looking at the database? I’m hoping I don’t have to copy/paste and translate all that spanish.

EDIT: Got it. Just need to find a username.

Wait. You don’t come to HtB to be trolled in Spanish? I thought that was the point of this site?

Root was fun, User is pretty troll.

But how? I did everything I could but I did not achieve anything, I need a clue.
I have read many books about different types of things to do when it comes to pentesting, but they are very different situations than what I find here.

Yeah, for this one you need to find some books on how to play hide and go seek.

tfw “git gud” significa aprender otro idioma … jaja. Me quedé un poco atrapado por la barrera del idioma.

This is already annoying me lol…so many rabbit holes…

I seem to always find the easy boxes harder than medium or hard…

Dumped the whole db too but can’t find anything useful. This box is driving me nuts…

The whole e***********h db? All of the indices? You can desbloquear a couple good secrets from in there.

Got user - struggling with root. Anyone able to provide any hints on where to go once I get the user flag? Or is root via another entry point entirely?

Might be that the tool I used didn’t get everything out. Got stuff from a few different indices. Can those secrets be dug out without translating?

You can identify them without translating, yes. It’ll be easier if you know what you’re looking for though - there is a big hint via port 80.

I’m so close to root. I see “comando”, but am having problems triggering it. Can someone who has completed this step DM me.

UPDATE: rooted. You need to be a bit patient once you have it. I was expecting it to trigger every X amount of seconds.
