Rooted. It was not really difficult but I learnt few things during the process.
Initial foothold: standard dictionaries will not work, visit that web shells website and try.
User: check permissions you have and google that program.
Root: use an automatic privesc tool to find that process or monitor processes. Then google it and modify a file with your payload. Then when you log in, your payload will be executed.
You can PM me for nudges.

Can anyone give me a clue on these processes?
Edit: So I got the root flag but I’m not sure if this was the correct way to do this…no root shell, just read the flag…
You can also get a reverse shell if you want.
