Any assistance with root? I know about GBs, the dir to place the file in and that p** has something to do with it but unsure from here

haha. first the box is down for pretty much most of first day. Now I know exactly how to get root… and it doesnt work. I know it is the way but it doesnt work… so annoying.

To echo a previous comment, you need to try a different terminal if you are stuck at trying to get root and aren’t making headway. Things will function/display differently.

No idea why this is the case, but it cost me well over an hour of time.

For people struggling with root. remember its not always a good idea to maximize ur screen :wink:

this unblocks me for root flag, thanks br0

Im kinda lost, got d**** credentials, but no idea where to go next

Just rooted !

Thanks for the machine @jkr ! I wonder where did you get the inspiration for the root flag, it reminds me one of the levels of bandit, the one that i struggled with the most !

I say something strange when i got in the user, hints from the guys on this thread helped me a lot ! i think they provide enough info already ! I would chat with someone who got root too ! the usual thing that i do didn’t worked, but i just tried something that seemed weird on my enum and it worked, coupled with the hints on the forum and got it !

Would love to hear from you @jkr, Thanks again !

I have tried and tried and that port is always “closed”

Struggling to crack creds. The usual tools finish almost instantly with a false alarm.

Anyone with a PM to help with syntax? Feel like I’m doing something silly.

Struggling with what to do with credentials of d****. I have RTFM multiple times and have the credentials cracked, just not quite getting what I have the ability to do under the unprivileged user…

Any nudges appreciated, PMs as well.

I got in and found the an interesting, plain view treat but cracking is taking forever? Weird

Nevermind.

Can anybody help me. I cracked creds and found “private space”, but I doesn’t really give me anything

it’s not that far. Look closer where you were. Go to the place you wouldn’t expect :wink:

Rooted.

Learnt something new from this box. Thanks @jkr !

Hints: The box name is a huge hint. Check permissions and read that specific file that has some interesting details.

Root: Quite easy. Once you get user, you will find another interesting file with an obvious line.

Feel free to ask for help.
