Hack the Box - Bitlab

HTB Bitlab machine walkthrough. A fun little box that has us work through gitlab based exploitation.

Hack the Box - Wall

HTB Wall machine walkthrough. An easy Linux machine from HTB that focused on RCE WAF bypass to establish an initial foothold then a direct pivot to root using a vulnerable suid binary.

Hack the Box - Heist

Hack the Box - Chainsaw

HTB Chainsaw machine walkthrough. Anonymous ftp connections, smart contract abuse, InterPlanetary File System and cracked password protected ssh private keys for user pivot. A loosely defined SUID file and PATH hijacking for root shell then finally leveraging root.txt's slack space to get the final flag.
