i really cant get anything any clue

Damn, finally rooted… Thanks !

Feel free to PM me

would appreciate some guidance on the last steps to the root - how to turn byte-wrangling over the the wire into something evil. I can read / write / copy but no idea how to use that.

??‍♂️

need a nudge for S**i part of foothold. really stuck :frowning:

anyone can help me in b*n exploitation part

I hope it not spoiler…
Use correct box for rooting.
I think Kali box enough for all and I made big mistake
Take box identical to target

UPD
Rooted
Thanks @sokafr for box, @MrSHolmes and @Hato0 :slight_smile:

Hi, could someone share a nudge on how create an error or a long query in a sqlite request, please ? :smile:

check out the available sq***e functions and find what you are searching for :slight_smile:

Well, I feel like I have look at the documentation quite extensively and I didn’t find anything that i could use. With the filters at least.
I could really use a more specific nudge, maybe in PM if you feel like it’s spoiling.

Thanks @traut for the nudge.

If someone is available to check my syntax for the last part of privesc, I would greatly appreciate a PM. Thanks.

Anyone that solved the BF please PM me, I’m stuck on calculating an O***t

Thanks to an very patient @ollypwn I got user yesterday night. now I’m stuck on getting a shell :blush:

Shell is not needed !

@sokafr I figured that out, when the service kept on crashing as soon as I had a connection :blush: still looking for another, more safe, way

is anyone willing to give me a nudge for the final part? :slight_smile: please pm

EDIT: I solved it finally. my first time approaching this kind of exploit, thank you so much for the box and the experience :slight_smile:

finally finished the box. What a learning journey it was, especially that nasty road to root :smiley:

pm for hints or emotional support

Fully agree! That was a puzzle and a half. What an amazing box @sokafr. Thanks :blush:

Thanks to @sokafr for uploading this amazing box, the root part of this machine was impossible for me, but thanks to the explanation given by @CHUCHO and @fr0ster I was able to root it

My hints:

User:

  • In those types of cases you need to try harder
  • (Shell) Don’t forget the first rule of the Fight Club

Root:

  • It’s the first thing you found, research on birds, ropes and don’t give up. I was able to get this part thanks to the help of @CHUCHO and @fr0ster

if this is spoiler, feel free to remove it

Finally! That was an intense machine! Thanks @sokafr for the learning experience. Not even sure where to start with hints as there are about 7 attacks/exploits required here. Happy to give nudges but be required to do some work on this machine.
