Secnotes Write-up (HTB)
2019-01-20

TL;DR: SQLi & WSL Escape | I did this box a few months ago, so the commentary on it may be a little rusty. It’s clear that it was popular, since it wasn’t voted out for so long. The main attack vectors in this were SQL Injection through the login field, and then escaping through cleartext passwords in the Windows Subsystem for Linux. [Read More...]

Waldo Write-up (HTB)
2018-12-19

As opposed to the more generic two-stage boxes, Waldo was unique in that there were three challenges to overcome, and each had completely different methods needed to do so. Whilst the third stage was a little tedious and hard to explain, I learnt about some small Linux functions that I never knew existed before. [Read More...]

Bounty Write-up (HTB)

Union SQLi Challenges (Zixem Write-up)
2018-10-25

I’ve always avoided learning more about SQL Injections, since they’ve always seemed like quite a daunting part of Infosec. Because of this, I finally decided to put in some time to an SQLi-focused wargame in order to sharpen my skills a little. You can find the challenges at the website below: [Read More...]

DevOops Write-up (HTB)
2018-10-13

TL;DR: XXE & Git Reverts. | While DevOops is known to be fairly easy, it was still good practice and fun to do. While I have seen both the same user and root methods in other CTFs before, they were both presented well, and overall the box was very well-structured. [Read More...]
