Let’s start

Hey you ❤️ Please check out my other posts, You will be amazed and support me by following on youtube.

Finding Target IP

To find the target IP lets use the below command or you can go with the net discover command.

sudo arp-scan -l

My target IP is and after finding the target IP I started to do for an nmap scan.


Let’s do a full port scan and check for version and OS.

nmap -p- -A

We can see from the scan report three ports are open, Port 22, Port 80 and Port 111, Port 41092


Let’s view the target site.

Unfortunately I didn’t find any thing interesting in the home page. Then I just ran a directory enumeration and found some of the information.

Finally we have found a hint and it seems interesting. I have found an admin directory where I have found a note called password. Here is how it looks

Since the port 22 is open let’s try to login via ssh



Since from the note we have got a password let’s use the username from the password.

username: ted
password: 12345ted123

We have got the connection lets elevate the privilege.

By using the below command we can enumerate all the binary having SUID permission.

find / -perm -u=s -type f 2>/dev/null

Using a Python one-liner, you can complete the identical process and spawn the root shell.

python2.7 -c 'import pty;pty.spawn("/bin/sh")' 
cat /root/flag.txt


According to me it’s and easy box. Out of 10 I will give a solid 1.5 out of 10 ????. Hope you enjoyed the writeup. See you guys in the next post ❤️
