OpenAdmin

Great Machine! It was fun cracking it. But I didn’t get all the points. I submitted both the root and user flag but was unable to get full points. Does anyone know, why is it so?

I’m stuck, can’t find the priv esc I need way from www to user, can I have a nudge? Maybe DM so I can talk about what I tried?

Rooted
For those who had an issue with John not working, I tried loading the ‘file’ in johnny (after doing *2john) and displayed what you’re looking for.

Rooted PM for hints

To quote yourself :slight_smile: ENUMERATE… and especially check what inventory of tools User1 and User2 has access to. Most tools can be used in more than one way :slight_smile:

Fell free to PM if you want more hint.

Can anyone give me a little help? I discovered my weakness is enumeration because I’m stuck with www data

To get around in a Linux system you need a username and some sort of credentials. See if you can find potential usernames.

If you have found anything remotely interesting, have you tried to utilize it in some way? See if you can find credentials.

You only need ‘cat’ and ‘ls’ command at this stage. Until you find some username and credentials, then you need an additional tool to test your findings.

My first root own. I had a lot of help from all the comments scattered throughout but learned a lot that will be useful elsewhere :slight_smile: Initial foothold, user1 and root were easy enough; user 2 was the challenge but once I started looking in the right place it got easier.

Rooted !
DM if you stuck

you are going right!

Rooted earlier today. msf failed me on this one, but was a fun journey. DM if hint is needed :slight_smile:

Just rooted, let me be clear here with some stuff:
0. Dont overthink, it is as easy machine

  1. Foothold should be a fast enum + google
  2. Getting the first user should be fast, all you need is cat, ls and knowing people use the same password for everything like in real world
  3. More cat and ls in different places and I found what I needed, got second user
  4. Getting root was ridiculous ctf like, piece of cake, go to the basics

Root it.

any nudge pm me :slight_smile:

Any nudge on what to enumerate for root?

Have a look at what the user is allowed to do as a super user.

Going for user, found an exploit to use however when running the .sh I get “syntax error: unexpected end of file”, and getting nothing with metasploit. Anyone get this and know a quick fix?
