Medusa is a lengthy machine from the platform HackMyVM despite being easy. The machine’s author is noname and I must pay respect to him for putting effort into this machine. The VM includes many fuzzing techniques for subdomain enumeration and directory enumeration. Likewise, it also asks us to brute-force hashes to get passwords. “Medusa from […]
Kitty is a hard machine to root by avijneyam from the platform HackMyVM. The machine’s theme is cats as suggested by the name of the VM. To begin with, this machine needs some host enumeration, cracking passwords, cracking JWT exploits, utilizing various other exploits, etc. Also, I would like you guys to give it a […]
Arroutada is a medium-difficulty machine by RiJaba1 from the HackMyVM platform. Although the author has marked this machine as easy, I don’t consider it that easy since it involves a lot of steps. To elaborate, it features various techniques like fuzzing, bruteforcing, proxying ports, remote command execution, etc. Anyway, the machine isn’t complex to crack […]
By far, Troya is one of my favourite VMs from the HackMyVM platform. The creator of the machines is sML and he has categorized this as a medium machine. However, I found this machine intriguing and was definitely hard for me. First of all, we need to identify a way to inject OS commands remotely. […]
The first machine on the platform HackMyVM is a very easy machine authored by the user smL. This machine simply features basic enumeration and bruteforcing. Once we get the password of a user, we can log into the system. Then, we need to abuse the writable path vulnerability in the system. Once we do that, […]
Opacity is a new machine from the platform HackMyVM. The author of the VM is mindsflee. The VM includes vulnerabilities like insecure file upload, remote command execution, insecure file permissions, exploiting cronjobs, etc. In this post, I will describe all the steps starting from identifying the IP address of the target to finding the root […]
“Blog” is an easy machine from HackMyVM by d4t4s3c. If you have done many machines, this is a piece of cake. If you are new, I definitely suggest you do it on your own. The enumeration starts with enumerating the directories and finding a special blog. It has a file upload vulnerability and one can […]
OTP is a difficult machine by the user avijneyam in the HackMyVM platform. By that, I mean there are many steps that one needs to perform to get to the root user. As usual, this machine works well on VirtualBox.
Venus is the first lab from the HackMyVM platform. This is a CTF that consists of 50 flags and a few hidden too. At the time of writing, the lab is a docker container and is available online via SSH. Similarly, this is a very easy CTF machine and beginners can directly dive into this.
Serve is an easy machine from the HackMyVM platform by d4t4s3c. It’s a bit tricky to get the foothold but the remaining steps are pretty easy. Lastly, the machine works on VirtualBox.
