Official Passage Discussion

Idk what to google for the root part :confused:
I can’t also find any suspicious file on the home directory …
Am i missing something???

php files decrypt is a rabbit hole?

Someone overwrite pxp files reset box and now ok

Finally rooted. Looking back, the box was quite good. User parts were pretty simple.
But spent a hell lot of time on the root part. Wasted a huge time poking around at the C*** service. Thanks to the hints from the forum, finally found the privesc and it took only minutes to get root -_-

Feel free to PM for nudges if stuck anywhere :wink:

Nice machine with a few twists just to keep you on your toes.

Nice box and good practice for people doing OSCP. User is pretty easy and I overthink the root part. Very nice box.

PM for help ?

if you are looking for your first medium box, this is a good one.

Rooted. I think this box should be an easy box in my opinion :smiley:

****@passage:~$ cat user.txt
got user.txt !!! thank you @rholas !!

Rooted ! pm me for any hint but tell me where you are , what you tried :slight_smile:

Yay, my first non-retired box that I rooted.

Very clever machine…easy when you know it.

I need some hints PM and ill do my best to help
thanks to @gs4l for the boost I needed

Hey! finally rooted it after hours. And mainly by finding a super helpful article by an accident :smiley:

Could anybody pm me pls what the correct approach was (rooting phase)? I mean mainly the hints “Stay at home”, “read a novel”, etc. It did not help me at all. Even after rooting the machine I don’t get these hints

But overall I enjoyed it. Thanks! :slight_smile:
