Not too sure about that machine. I liked the research phase and learning about new tools, it’s always cool, not only for the specific things your learn, but for the general flow you get about it.
But that “speed” challenge led me to believe things didn’t work and made me lose a few hours. That’s kinda sad when you spend three hours looking in another direction because you were one second late on the refreshing…
Anyway, on my way to root now !
P.S : I, once again, had trouble with the user flag. What happened was I was going through a VPN, but my “Access” page on the classic HTB platform was registering me on another one. So I downloaded the file HTB thought I was using, and could submit the flag. Next time you can’t submit a flag, try to check if the VPN you’re using and the one registered within HTB don’t mismatch.
Edit : WOW ! I changed my mind. I LOVED the root part.
Thank you @MrR3boot that was really cool !
