Task is to become root and read /root/flag.txt.
Pinky has setup a development environment to develop and test new software. He thinks his dev environment is pretty locked down security wise, what do you think?
Network (DHCP) Bridged
Difficulty for user: Hard/Expert
Difficulty for root: Hard/Expert
Tested in VirtualBox
You've received intelligence of a new Villain investing heavily into Space and Laser Technologies. Although the Villian is unknown we know the motives are ominous and apocalyptic.
Hack into the Moonraker system and discover who's behind these menacing plans once and for all. Find and destroy the Villain before it's too late!
-- Difficulty: Challenging
-- Flag is /root/flag.txt
-- Tested on VMware
-- DCHP enabled
-- No extra tools besides what's on Kali by default
-- Learning Objectives: Client-side Attacks, NoSQL, RESTful, NodeJS, Linux Enumeration and Google-fu.
Thanks to /u/limbernie on Reddit for testing!
Good luck and have fun!
MERCY is a machine dedicated to Offensive Security for the PWK course, and to a great friend of mine who was there to share my sufferance with me. :-)
MERCY is a name-play on some aspects of the PWK course. It is NOT a hint for the box.
If you MUST have hints for this machine (even though they will probably not help you very much until you root the box!): Mercy is: (#1): what you always plead for but cannot get, (#2): a dubious machine, (#3): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c-5UnMdKg70
Note: Some report a kernel privilege escalation works on this machine. If it does, try harder! There is another vector that you should try!

I created this boot2root last year to be hosted on Peerlyst.com It's beginner level, but requires more than just an exploitdb search or metasploit to run.
It was created in (and is intended to be used with) VirtualBox, and takes some extra configuration to set up in VMWare.
Description : Two french people want to start the very first fanclub of the youtuber Khaos Farbauti Ibn Oblivion. But they're not very security aware ! (IMPORTANT NOTE : The whole challenge is in french, including server conf. Which may add to the difficulty if you are non-native or using a non-azerty keyboard)
Difficulty : Beginner with some little non-usual twists
Flag : There are four flags to find, not all of them on the solution path
Description: Matrix is a medium level boot2root challenge. The OVA has been tested on both VMware and Virtual Box.
Flags: Your Goal is to get root and read /root/flag.txt
Networking: DHCP: Enabled IP Address: Automatically assigned
Hint: Follow your intuitions ... and enumerate!
