In this article, we will see walkthroughs of an interesting Vulnhub machine called Fristileaks.
Please note: For all of these machines, I have used the VMware workstation to provision VMs. Kali Linux VM will be my attacking box. The techniques used are solely for educational purposes, and I am not responsible if listed techniques are used against any other targets.
Description: A small VM made for a Dutch informal hacker meetup called Fristileaks. Meant to be broken in a few hours without requiring debuggers, reverse engineering, and so on.
Name: Fristileaks 1.3
Style: Enumeration/Follow the breadcrumbs
Goal: get root (uid 0) and read the flag file
Tester(s): dqi, barrebas
Also a note for VMware users: VMware users will need to manually edit the VM’s MAC address to: 08:00:27:A5:A6:76
- Download the Fristileaks VM from the above link and provision it as a VM.
- Let’s start with enumeration. First, we need to identify the IP of this machine. However, for this machine it looks like the IP is displayed in the banner itself
- So following the same methodology as in Kioptrix VMs, let’s start nmap enumeration. Below we can see that port 80 and robots.txt are displayed.
- Contents of robots.txt are:
However, enumerating these does not yield anything.
- Nmap also suggested that port 80 is also opened. Let’s look out there.
- Unfortunately nothing was of interest on this page as well. Following the banner of “Keep Calm and Drink Fristi,” I thought of navigating to the /fristi directory since the others exposed by robots.txt are also name of drinks. To my surprise, it did resolve, and we landed on a login page.
- Quickly looking into the source code reveals a base-64 encoded string. Decoding (Read more...)
