Welcome to Insanity – my fifth CTF. There is one flag on this CTF. Your objective is to gain root access.
This CTF is rated as 5/5 for difficulty. What makes this CTF difficult is not necessarily the types of vulnerabilities you will find – instead, it’s the process of exploiting them. DHCP is enabled – this CTF has been tested on VirtualBox only, though I don’t think there’ll be issues if you run it with VMWare.
A web hosting provider has asked you to test their security. Can you find the vulnerabilities on their server and gain root access? If anyone wants to submit a written report for this, I’d give it a read and potentially publish it on this blog! 🙂
Note about hints
Please note, I will not be giving out hints for this CTF until at least the 30th August 2020. Try harder.
Edit: A few people have joined my Discord Server to share information (which is absolutely fine). Feel free to join and discuss ways to hack this CTF.
