I seen many students having the same difficulty with the initial foothold would it be possible to have a few hints to get started. Im presuming this is not like the realworld where we would start with a Whois search and enumerate domains and sub domains and so forth as its an internal lab OR am i wrong

Im planning on starting this at the end of next month but im in the initial recon phase of my work reading every piece of info about these labs and frankly have seen students pulling their hair out so im a bit curious :slight_smile:


what is your question ?

Going to do this lab soon anyone want partner up with me

Hello. I haven’t been able to establish a foothold on Rastalabs target network. Could someone please provide a hint.

Hello, last two days i face many problems in rastalabs regarding victims response, while today I cannot anymore connect to an account with password found before. I have requested a ticket for support but there is no progress.

@jailbreak I have been facing the same. I have already got the first flag but when try to fetch that again the page is not loading.
I am able to login to compromised account but unable to send mail from that…

Seems partially rastalabs is down. Its been same for past 1 week.
Whome did you send the mail ?

Can anybody give me a hint regarding phishing? stager working fine for test vm but not getting any response. stuck here for 2 days

Hi mate. I got creds to access the mail but can’t get the flag. Hint please.

I need pointers on how to find the lead to this. Anything I can try finding from each user leads me nowhere. Could you DM me please?

You need to imagine you are doing a bug bounty or a pentest so its internet recon theres some posts out there pertaining to this

you need find a certain employee

however please bear in mind i done this lab 2 or 3 years ago :slight_smile:

Would appreciate a nudge. Been able to verify some accounts and have tried to brute force them without any luck. Also looked at Linkedin to see if there are more “employees” without any luck.

Its been 3 or 4 years i think since i did Rasta i remember finding name and hints for passwords on a website cant remember what is called but the name is i the lab

secondly my password was labrador but then changed to summer 2019 sorry i have not been on HTB for a long time
