This boot2root box is exclusive to VulnHub. If you have a crack at the challenge, please consider supporting VulnHub for the great work they do for our offsec community.

Description

In 1965, one of the most influential bands of our times was formed.. Pink Floyd. This boot2root box has been created to celebrate 50 years of Pink Floyd's contribution to the music industry, with each challenge giving the attacker an introduction to each member of the Floyd.

You challenge is simple... set your controls for the heart of the sun, get root, and grab the flag! Rock on!

Notes

  • DHCP (Automatically assigned)
  • IMPORTANT: The vm IS working as intended if you receive a successful DHCP lease as seen in the boot up sequence.
  • 'thewall' vm must be on the same subnet as the attacking machine AND the attacking machine should ideally be a vm on the same network as 'thewall'. If you choose to use a physical box as the attacking machine, 'thewall' must exist on the same network via a bridged interface.

I created this machine to help others learn some basic CTF hacking strategies and some tools. I aimed this machine to be very similar in difficulty to those I was breaking on the OSCP.

This is a boot-to-root machine will not require any guest interaction.

There are two designed methods for privilege escalation.

  • 23/09/2015 == v1.0.1
  • 22/09/2015 == v1.0

If you are having issues with VirtualBox, try the following:

  • Downloaded LordOfTheRoot_1.0.1.ova (confirmed file hash)
  • Downloaded and installed VMWare ovftool.
  • Converted the OVA to OVF using ovftool.
  • Modified the OVF using text editor, and did the following:

    replaced all references to "ElementName" with "Caption" replaced the single reference to "vmware.sata.ahci" with "AHCI"

  • Saved the OVF. +Deleted the .mf (Manifest) file. If you don't you get an error when importing, saying the SHA doesn't match for the OVF (I also tried modifying the hash, but no luck).

  • Try import the OVF file, and it should work fine.

The Challenge:

You are looking for two flags. Using discovered pointers in various elements of the running web application you can deduce the first flag (a downloadable file) which is required to find the second flag (a text file). Look, read and maybe even listen. You will need to use basic web application recon skills as well as some forensics to find both flags.

Level: Intermediate

Description:

The virtual machine comes in an OVA format, and is a generic 32 bit CentOS Linux build with a single available service (HTTP) where the challenge resides. Feel free to enable bridged networking to have the VM automatically be assigned a DHCP address. This VM has been tested in VMware Workstation 12 Player (choose "Retry" if needed), and VirtualBox 4.3.

SETUP

The named of the Virtual machine is "Acid-Reloaded". This Virtual Machine contains both network logics and web logics. I have added new concept here and let's see how many of you think more logically. :-)

You need to extract the rar and run the vmx using VMplayer . The machine has DHCP active list so once automatically assign an IP network, the next step will be to identify the target and discover the / the service / s to start the game.

GOAL

Escalate the privileges to root user and capture the flag. Once any one able to beat the box then shoot me a mail

Codename: NB0x01

Download: ly0n.me/nullbyte/NullByte.ova.zip

Objetcive: Get to /root/proof.txt and follow the instructions.

Level: Basic to intermediate.

Description: Boot2root, box will get IP from dhcp, works fine with virtualbox&vmware.

Hints: Use your lateral thinking skills, maybe you’ll need to write some code.

Welcome to the world of Acid.

Fairy tails uses secret keys to open the magical doors.

SETUP

The named of the Virtual machine is "Acid Server". This Virtual Machine is completely web based. I have added little new concept here and hope people will enjoy solving this.You need to extract the rar and run the vmx using VMplayer . The machine has DHCP active list so once automatically assign an IP network, the next step will be to identify the target and discover the / the service / s to start the game.

GOAL

Escalate the privileges to root and capture the flag. Once anyone able to beat the machine then please let me know.

Welcome!

Your challenge, should you choose to accept, is to gain root access on the server! The employees over at Flick Inc. have been hard at work prepping the release of their server checker app. Amidst all the chaos, they finally have a version ready for testing before it goes live.

You have been given a pre-production build of the Android .apk that will soon appear on the Play Store, together with a VM sample of the server that they want to deploy to their cloud hosting provider.

The .apk may be installed on a phone (though I wont be offended if you don't trust me ;]) or run in an android emulator such as the Android Studio (https://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html).

Good Luck!

Note: Vmware will complain about the OVF specification. Just click retry on the import and everything should be ok!

Shouts:

@barrebas for testing and patience
@s4gi_ for testing and the inspiration

DISCLAIMER

By using this virtual machine, you agree that in no event will I be liable for any loss or damage including without limitation, indirect or consequential loss or damage, or any loss or damage whatsoever arising from loss of data or profits arising out of or in connection with the use of this software.

TL;DR: If something bad happens, it's not my fault.

SETUP

Brainpan 3 has been tested and found to work with VMware Player, VMware Fusion, and Virtual Box.

Check to make sure Brainpan_III.ova has following checksums so you know your download is intact:

MD5 : 170e0d8b26ab721587537fcde69087a0

SHA1: ed9ae53c556a1ce6988b3a54621dd6469c8b8aa5

Import Brainpan_III.ova into your preferred hypervisor and configure the network settings to your needs. It will get an IP address via DHCP, but it's recommended you run it within a NAT or visible to the host OS only since it is vulnerable to attacks.

GOAL

Get root and get the flag.
