If you look at the response to various submissions, there is a string which helps narrow down the search.

I had the same problem initially but if you look at how they have patched these types of vulnerabilities you can use that knowledge to find the correct one by automation. It really makes the needle stand out from the haystack.

Some people said this box is easy but honestly, when you never had to exploit that kind of vulnerability, it’s kind of a nightmare. I spent hours and hours reading articles and watching videos, trying to get my head around it, plus… Java… and in the end that was a little push from @TazWake that helped me enough to get a shell. But, yeah, if you struggle, that’s okay, lots of new things here and you might catch a lot of fishes before grabbing the good one. Good box overall, and root part was just a matter of paying attention.
I also don’t know why people said to look at the newest CVE, it seems very misleading, unless there are several ways to do it, in case I’d be happy if someone could give me a link with explanations :slight_smile:
Thanks @egotisticalSW & @felamos !

Done and Dusted! Thx @egotisticalSW & @felamos.

Is there any CVE for the J*** b********r on port 80? I’m unable to get any foothold, a nudge

There is but it might need some slight tweaking from the syntax on the github page.

I’d suggest trying stuff and googling the responses.

Rooted!
I highly recommend this box for beginners, especially the privilege escalation part.

PM me for a nudge. But first tell me what you’ve tried.

I went down the rabbit hole. Spent two whole days researching articles on a specific type of vulnerability as this is my first exposure to it. I reset this morning and took a step back. I get certain errors but don’t know what to do with them, the google-fu that everyone expects is subjective and it leads me back to the same articles I was researching for two days. No bueno.

There is a lot of trial and error. Once you get the error messages, you can google them, and (I assume luck plays a huge part here) this might point at the right thing.

It’s difficult to go beyond this without a spoiler though as I don’t know what else to say, other than “use XXXX”. I found the best resource was named $Technology R** and S**F.

It did need a tiny bit of tweaking IIRC.

Fun Box!
User: google-fu
Root: standard enum scripts highlight it, its pretty easy and has been seen on many boxes before

Hey Everyone,
I need a bit of help on the initial foothold. I’m confident that I have the correct CVE and exploit. I can confirm the get request is reaching me and retrieving i*****.s**. However, I get a s** error on website that says: command: slow query: 239 ms. Which, I remember correctly is an indication that the s** query has timed out essentially. Anyone else hit this snag?

Thanks for your help!

Update
Nvm rooted.

is anyone available for giving a nudge on this machine??? im trying to use a CVE that has R** and S**F but unable to get it to implement properly.

Try injecting it into a modification request by tampering with the name field.

Hello! I have been searching for the right CVE, as per the hints - I think I have the right one… It shows you how to confirm that it’s a vulnerability… and it does – Though I am having issues using javac without the right classes - Any help is appriciated!
