Hm, linpeas gave you what’s needed? I found it manually, but linpeas did not show it. Spend like 2 hours on that. Privesc was straight forward and easy.

Quite cool machine, Thanks!

Rooted. Nice box. Thanks!

Great easy box .
For the hints everything is said above but pm me if you need more help.

Rooted !
Nice box, relatively straightforward.

PM if needed :slight_smile:

Fantastic easy box. Reminder that just because something isn’t in gtfobins doesn’t mean you can’t run commands with it

If you’re looking for help, don’t be afraid to send me a message but make sure you include info on what you’ve tried and what you’re thinking

uid=0(root) gid=0(root) groups=0(root)

Foothold: Just look, what you can’t see
User: Enum, Enum and Enum
Root:Just edit something :wink:

If you need any help feel free to PM me.

Can anyone explain why running “./” gives me a permission error, but running “bash” works fine? All permissions are set correctly, I’ve never seen this before.

Rooted in less than 30 minutes. This is way too easy, after getting foothold instantly privesc to root. May I know if it is intended?

is anyone else having issues with connection on this box? SSH freezes up within seconds of logging in. Doesn’t seem to be an issue on other boxes.


earlier, i wonder why i can’t login as an A*nistor. and also i can’t submit flag, so i need to start over again. if you encounter this problem just reset the machine.


make sure you read the source code.

dont forget to enum. or you will miss summer.

check root perm :wink:

if you think i spoiled something. feel free to report this as a spoiler.
