I’m a beginner but I agree with you, I really struggled with the SSTI part since it was my first time with this kind of scenario.

Hi I am newbie trying to solve the perfection box can anyone help me out please i am not able to understand where to do SSTI. I tried sub domain enumeration but didn’t found any pages is there any other pages there.

whats your DC?

Is there a way to complete root without waiting 12 hours if I’m only using a virtual machine and don’t have access to spare GPUs?

Yes, there is.
Specifically, if you craft it yourself. On a script language it takes about 20 minutes, on a compiled one way less, maybe half of the time.

tracking. I got root. Thanks for the insight.

To all the folks who are saying they spent X minutes building a custom wordlist for this box:
I regret to inform you, that was wasted time.

Look into alternate modes you can use with your kitty (or your old-timey tophat frend) and you’ll see that a wordlist is entirely unnecessary.

rooted it now, but I wasn’t able to get a reverse shell for quite a while. I was able to execute some commands, but as soon as I tried to add “-e sh” to my nc command, it would just stop working. Anyone got any idea as to why that is?

I have the same problem. It’s very strange.

Edit: Got it.
Hint: Yellow and blue type of snake.

stuck on the root flag :smiling_face_with_tear:

Can anyone point towards the foothold? Not so much how, but where!?
