Greetings! Welcome to the write-up of the new machine Breakout by icex64 from the HackMyVM platform. This is fairly easy to root and doesn’t involve many techniques. If you haven’t done it yet, I recommend you invest your time in it. Anyway, I have tested this machine on VirtualBox and it sometimes loses the network connection. To fix this, I had to restart the machine. Please comment if you are facing the same. So, let’s start the walkthrough. “Writeup – Breakout – HackMyVM – Walkthrough”
Tom is an easy machine from HackMyVM by d4t4s3c. This has a few vulnerabilities including LFI to RCE. Likewise, there are some binaries that would escalate the privileges using sudo. The machine works quite well on VirtualBox and if you haven’t tried it yet, I recommend you do so.
Again is an easy machine from HackMyVM by SML. Here, the author has marked the machine as hard but this is quite easy if we understand the code. This machine is similar to his previous machine Texte. You can use it on VirtualBox. “Again – Writeup – HackMyVM – Walkthrough”
Demons is a good machine from HackMyVM by b4el7d. The creator has rated this machine as an easy one. However, I found this a bit challenging as I had to enumerate further every time I thought I found something. This machine works well on VirtualBox. Also, make sure you have a copy of Microsoft Office installed with MS Access.
A few months ago, I wanted to play with a machine that had many techniques involved. Luckily, I stumbled upon “Finding My Friend” by the VIEH group. I was stuck for a long time at the last level, however, I rooted this machine recently. It involves various techniques to get to the root and is a very nice machine for everyone who wants to start playing with CTF machines. The machine works quite well on VirtualBox.
Texte by SML is a recent addition to the HackMyVM platform. This machine is moderately difficult or easy depending on the experience of the player. Furthermore, it is quite straightforward. Likewise, it works well on VirtualBox.
Lupinone is an easy machine from HackMyVM by icex64. A bit of logic and experience helps to get the foothold. Once we get the foothold, it is a piece of cake. Firstly, I would like to congratulate icex64 for his first submission to the HackMyVM platform. About the machine, it works quite well on VirtualBox.
Hat is a great machine from HackMyVM by d4t4s3c. The machine is not straightforward and one has to think laterally. Also, this includes techniques and vulnerabilities like local file inclusions, bruteforcing, etc. The machine works quite well on VirtualBox.
Tranquil is a moderately difficult machine from HackMyVM by SML. The best part of this machine is to get the foothold. After this, there is a file where we can write and it gives us the root shell. Lastly, this machine works well on VirtualBox.
Bellatrix is the second vulnerable machine from the series Hogwarts in Vulnhub. The series is based on the movie/book series Harry Potter. Likewise, Bellatrix is one of the antagonists, who killed our favourite character, Sirius Black, in the series. So, with this note, let’s start the walkthrough. The machine is quite easy and there aren’t any new concepts from the walkthroughs that I did earlier. Furthermore, this machine works well on VirtualBox.
