THM – Overpass 2

Gaining Foothold

ssh james@[TARGET IP] -p 2222
Password: november16

Privilege Escalation

Option 1: Sudo

I tried to sudo but the credentials for James doesn’t work.

Password: whenevernoteartinstant

Previously I have cracked the password for these users but the credentials does not work as well

james:$6$7GS5e.yv$HqIH5MthpGWpczr3MnwDHlED8gbVSHt7ma8yxzBM8LuBReDV5e1Pu/VuRskugt1Ckul/SKGX.5PyMpzAYo3Cg/:18464:0:99999:7:::

Option 2: SUID

I tried to find the SUID binaries. There is one uncommon binary in /home/james/.suid_bash When I execute the binary, there is a bash running but the user was still james. But we can elevate the privilege but running with -p

That’s how we get the root user.
