Nineveh: bugged in 2021

Hello! As prep for OSCP I’m doing the whole tjnull-excel list of boxes. Now I’ve reached Nineveh. But… this box seems seriously bugged. I did a reset already 3 times, but there’s a real small chance I can ping it ( and even IF so, there’s a big chance it will break in a few seconds.

Like this, it’s not doable. Does anyone experience the same thing with this retired but interesting looking box?

EDIT: nevermind, it is fixed by rebooting my Kali (2021.2). Weird stuff. This thread can be closed/deleted.

can any one help me to decrypt an Exe ??
