HTB Academy: Network Enumeration with NMAP

I’d really appreciate a nudge with the following question:

Section:
Nmap Scripting Engine

Question:
“Use NSE and its scripts to find the flag that one of the services contain and submit it as the answer”

Hint:
Web servers are among the most attacked services because they are made accessible to users and present a high attack potential.

What I’ve done:
We’ll I’ve enumerated both ports 80 and 31337, using every ‘default’ script category using the --script and all the categories, i.e., discovery, version, vuln, etc - none of them turn up the flag…

…I’d really appreciate a pointer if at all possible.

I had issues connecting to the machine the other night because the VM wouldn’t load (got a red box error from my htb) , now some of the ports that were previously open are now closed, I’ve respawned the target a few times. I’m wondering if theres an issue with it…

Got it now :::facepalm:::

overthinking

I had the same issue

Apologies if OT.
Have you been able to complete “Firewall and IDS/IPS Evasion - Hard Lab”?
I found the service, but can’t fingerprint the version without causing the firewall to close the connection

@MoeSyzslak could you throw a hint here, im stuck at the same :smile:

I never managed to complete the hard lab… ?
