Still stuck on the foothold. Found a CVE but it needs creds I can’t find to save my life. Any nudges ?

me,too

Enum, enum is all i can say.

@Caracal For low level people “enum enum enum” doesn’t help. If it’s something we missed, okay. But I’ve been sitting in the l*g folder for a while, and I simply don’t have knowledge to distinguish what I can use or not. I’ve tried getting the authors to hydra, hijacking the cookies, but nothing.

yeah true. so, youre on the right path.
check again what you got, maybe something that does not get rendered in source code files :slight_smile:

@Raekh i am in your situation :wink: bashing my head against what i have

It’s not about low level people. If you found the file, i say “enum,enum,enum” because it should be clear what you have to do and how to do it.
It’s not even about level, but more about clearness, you have a CVE, you need password, and if you have that file, it’s just about enum, and it’s clearly impossible to give a clue, without spoiling that part.
You don’t need to hijack anything, you don’t need to bruteforce creds.

For foothold:

  • If you don’t have it, common list will help you to get to it.
  • If you have it, just search what you need in it.

I just found admin creds after bashing my head against the wall for a while.

Tip: When people say look for logs, don’t get tunnel vision like i did. Instead, once you find something remotely interesting, then follow it all the way even if it means navigating to other directories. You won’t find the creds in the backup folder only a way to find them.

(Please remove if i gave away too much)

I just can’t find the creds, I’ve been searching for hours!!!

the creds are not in the tar file… but if you read the contents of that archive carefully… then you will find a path where to look for creds

PS: assume that is not a spoiler, either you have found the tar file or you have not

Hello, creator here, just gonna repost the hint that I have made public in the discord chat, if you are stuck at a certain part.

“Trace the attacker’s steps, see what persistence they laid out. One way is by turning a user who normally cannot login, be able to login, and tampering with its service to get persistent access into the box. Maybe they didn’t clean up very well?”

I’m no longer really active on the forums (trying to reduce the number of accounts to check :stuck_out_tongue: ), but DM me on discord for further hints.

the little side hint @tang0 and @cool4coder gave here are important. And Thanks !

I got webshell but I can’t get reverse shell :(, any hint?

This box does not allow network connection…
ssh is here the “key” "gen"erally :wink:

thank you @D4nch3n - nice box!

True, I saw what I was missing. Thx u dude

Does the CVE actually work on this box ? Running it seems to do nothing but a blank page.

I hav got a webshell but when i go to it i get blank stuff

When certain file is uploaded, just for test sake, seems web server is crashing. Not sure if that is intended behavior, but machine reset is needed.
Someone if could confirm same…

same issue. Seems like the the machine would’ve had to reset every time someone pushed up a invalid file.

On recrute ! ? We are hiring!
Looking for a job.

Invitation sent :wink:

rooted i like the box in the first part
my hints:
-simple enum can you in the place
-you are there take a look what you can do the cve gives issues simulate with burp
-you are there ,limited but there, dont forgot its compromised
-the attacker can come back so think how with everything limited
-you found the way get in dont be shied
-ok stay at home its not safe out
-think how the attacker can gain root he must left a backdoor

hope its not a big spoile
thanks to @TheCyberGeek for hints this guy is geek really
also thanks to @D4nch3n for this box

Can’t seem to get the exploit to work. Getting 200s, but nothing else. Hmm. Probably missing something simple.
