SolidState - Help a newbie.

Hello everyone,

I am a developer, new to security, currently trying my hardest to own root @ SolidState.

Like Mirai, user own was relatively simple, but it feels like I’m missing a very important piece of information in order to own root.

Without spoiling too much (even tho the machine is gone in a couple days), what I’ve done so far is reverse shell with weak user privileges, I looked around the system a little bit and found a py file that could potentially help me, but I did not manage to edit it properly. Even if I succeed in editing it I’m still pretty certain it’ll run with my weak permissions.

I know a lot of people here only have “Try harder” as an answer, TIA but it will not be helpful.

you are on the right way your py file. Edit it and wait 2 minutes.

this box made me thankful i’d learn basic vi commands :slight_smile:
