The machine was part of my workshop for Hacker Fest 2019 at Prague.

Difficulty level of this VM is very “very easy”. There are two paths for exploit it.

  • There are no intentional rabbit holes.
  • Through a vulnerable "[retracted]". Exploit is part of MSF.
  • Through vulnerable "[retracted]".
    • Can be found by "[retracted]".
    • There is a "[retracted]" injection (exploit is part of MSF).
    • Recovered credentials (username + hash) can be cracked by John and rockyou.txt wordlist.
    • Low priv shell can be gained through MSF exploit or trying the credentials against "[retracted]".
    • Priv. esc. is simply done by "[retracted]".

It works better in VirtualBox than VMware. - .OVA = VirtualBox file - .ZIP = Hyper-V VM (v5)
