Like every year, the Swiss security event Insomni’hack releases a “CTF teaser” two months prior the real CTF. This post is a write-up for three of the challenges: Vulnshop, Smart-Y, and Hax4Bitcoins. Unfortunately I learned about this CTF a bit late, so I didn’t get much time to play on it.
In this post I’ll talk about how I managed to exploit the SickOs 1.1 VM made by D4rk36. The fact that the author mentions it is very similar to the OSCP labs caught my eye since I’m seriously thinking about taking this certification in a few months. 🙂 Let’s get started!
I managed to find the time to play on a new vulnerable VM. This time, it will be Vulnix and will mainly be around exploiting vulnerable NFS shares. The VM was overall quite simple, but still learned me several things about NFS and how it plays with remote permissions.
It’s been a few months since I wrote my last write-up on a VulnHub vulnerable machine. Time for a new one! The VM is called Mr Robot and is themed after the TV show of the same name. It contains 3 flags to find, each of increasing difficulty.
I recently started gaining a lot of interest in security, and after reading several CTF write-ups, I decided to try to solve one by myself. I chose Droopy v0.2. In case you don’t know, the goal of a CTF is very simple: Capture The Flag! Most of the time, the flag is simply a text file that you can obtain after having gained root access on the machine. You are only provided with a virtual machine, and the rest is up to you. Let’s get started!
