Great foothold! Shows that things that look random are not so random at all. It appears I am stuck on the next exploitation though… This might hurt my brand, but there is something that appears highly exploitable, but doesn’t call me back. Can someone DM me a nudge on what might be preventing what looks like obvious execution?

I’m stuck in the same place. The exploit in question is from 2016, so maybe it’s a rabbit hole?!

I am going to assume that it is indeed disabled. You would need a privileged account to re-enable it though I am guessing.

Got the user flag. Box is kind of annoying me at this point :sweat_smile:.

Great job. The privesc to user was the most annoying for me. But the rest is quite fun and intuitive. I managed to get root.

Got root! Not my all-time favorite box, but I learned a lot on the root privesc. DM me if you need assistance as some parts of the box are a little iffy in my opinion.
