Hint for Fighter

Are the root.txt flag in the Administrator Desktop, it seems like is not, if someone rooted please pm me a nudge, thanks.

Argh, fighter has been driving me nuts off and on for weeks now. I’m at the point of trying to execute commands, but as far as I can tell nothing is happening no matter what I do. I know what I need to use…it just seems like it’s doing nothing…

Edit: Drunk posting/wrong machine. Lol.

Someone can you send me PM for help? :slight_smile:
I have a limited shell in system32.
Thanks

PD: The exploit not work right now… The machine have a problem

Edit: Never mind. See latest post.

the first rule!! it is front read it and add them to gether!. :slight_smile:

thanks, think i found it. not just to figure out how to actually get into the site ._.

Let’s just say that this step is simpler than you might think. A lot of funkiness going on there but stay old school and straightforward.

This means that I am missing something - if I am not ready with bruteforce after one week, then I do it wrong right?

It might be a ‘CASE’ of trying harder. XD

So is there no systematic way of finding the old members site? Is it just educated guessing from cryptic clues?

If anyone wants to put me out of my misery please do PM me.

There’s half a dozen different things that we could change the case of! Usernames, passwords, form fields, cookie fields, other HTTP headers…

We could be bruteforcing in all caps for another week and still not find anything because we were supposed to do it in mixed case instead!

Gah! This box is enraging…

There is a ‘game-ism’ occuring, something is missing from the htb infrastructure that you need to account for…

Edit: Solved that problem.

Sorry to double post, but how do you deal with the firewall when going for a user shell?

The firewall has (at least) two ‘holes’ - at well known places!

Crap, you’re right. It’s my connectback that’s not working. Thanks.

Edit: Owned. Getting the initial shell is the most difficult part of this box, hands down. Getting user requires some guesswork. Getting root is the easiest part of the whole ordeal. Thanks to everyone who provided me with guidance.

After a few painful weeks, I finally got it. Thanks to @kekra & @opt1kz for their help. One of the best, hardest boxes on HTB at the moment. Kudos to @decoder & @Cneeliz. Never give up and don’t forget to Try Harder!!!

I finally have the login page, but I’m not able to get into it. sqlmap does not give anything here. what could I be missing?

Edit: nvm. sqlmap started talking.

Hmmm, is this hard because it takes alot of guessing ? I have tried CeWL and Crunch to perform custom dirbusting but I found nothing :frowning: Any hint ? by PM ? I have also tested for steganography on the various images files in both the /images and /Images directories…I tried to bruteforce for various extensions (.asp,aspx,.htm,.html,.js,.css,.png,.tiff,.txt etc…). I followed all the links on the page, but found nothing of great interest. I guess the next thing I can try is to mix case my wordlists and run dirb again…arghh, hate these boxes :smiley:
