Video & additional notes for StreamIO, a medium difficulty Windows machine on HackTheBox that involves manual MSSQL Injection, going from file inclusion to RCE and in this case getting the SeImpersonate privilege back to get SYSTEM via an EFS-based potato.
Video & additional notes for Resourced, an intermediate difficulty Windows machine on PG-Practice that involves password spraying and an RBCD attack.
Acute is a 40-point Active Directory Windows machine on HackTheBox. I'm going to use it to show some techniques which can be useful in other scenarios and keep it short on the things that are not that important.
We are solving Anubis, a 50-point windows machine on HackTheBox which involves an ASP template injection, windows containers, and stealing hashes with Responder. Later we'll escalate privileges using noPAC.
Baby is an easy machine on Vulnlab that involves enumerating LDAP & spraying credentials. For SYSTEM we exploit SeBackup & SeRestore Privileges.
I always had difficulties understanding what Silver Tickets are and how they are used. Maybe this comes from the fact that they are rarely seen in labs. They can be really powerful though, so I'll be trying my best to describe my understanding of them in this post.
This is a short walkthrough on Lustrous, a chain consisting of 2 machines on vulnlab.
We are solving Vault from PG Practice. This machine involves planting malicious files on an SMB share to steal hashes. For root, we will abuse GPO Permissions and explore 2 unintended privilege escalations.
We are solving intelligence, a nice windows machine on HackTheBox, created by Micah. For user, we will enumerate pdfs on a webserver & will use both the content & metadata to find valid credentials of a domain user. For root, we update a DNS entry, steal a hash & dump...
We are solving Pivotapi, a 50-point Windows machine on HackTheBox. This one involves some Reverse Engineering, MSSQL, and Active Directory Attacks like Kerberoasting, ASREPRoasting, and various misconfigurations. In the end, we will explore some unintended ways to root this box.
