Down By The Docker

Ever fantasized about playing with docker misconfigurations, privilege escalation, etc. within a container?

Download this VM, pull out your pentest hats and get started

We have 2 Modes: - HARD: This would require you to combine your docker skills as well as your pen-testing skills to achieve host compromise. - EASY: Relatively easier path, knowing docker would be enough to compromise the machine and gain root on the host machines.

We have planted 3 flag files across the various machines / systems that are available to you. Your mission if you choose to accept would be as following:

  1. Identify all the flags (2 in total: flag_1 and flag_3) (flag_2 was inadvertently left out)

  2. Gain id=0 shell access on the host machine.
