HTB Academy - Service Authentication Brute Forcing

Hello, I am just looking for a bit of clarification on this section. Are we supposed to make our username / password for the box using Bill Gates like in the example shown above the question? Or are we using common usernames/password lists for hydra? The question isn’t so clear on this.

Thanks!

Hello, could you give a little help? Ive used /opt/useful/SecLists/Passwords/Default-Credentials/ssh-betterdefaultpasslist.txt for passwords of “b.gates” and rockyou-10 also but got nothing

.

I’m confused too. When you start reading the module it seems there’s no other information other than an IP and a Port number…

Yep, I have the same question too. Not sure if we have to use same dictionary generated in previous sections “William.txt” or generate ours with different words. Not clear. Nowhere to enumerate.

I recall that you should use the william.txt as wordlist

Hi,
On friday I was working on this assesment. It was completely unsuccesful. The issue was a definition problem. HTB should explain better their assesments. When they say employee I thought it was an employee from the previous lessons. But they actually talk about the previous assesment. So, the assesments are actually conencted. The same situation that old starting point (which also was unexplained). So, once I find out this (thaks to a tip) I solve the assesment in 5 minutes. So, williams.txt is a wrong choice, I guess :slight_smile:
