How to seize control over a host located in a different subnetwork? The right answer is: build numerous intricate tunnels. This article addresses tunneling techniques and their application in pentesting using as an example Reddish, a hardcore virtual machine (insane difficulty level: 8 out of 10) available on Hack The Box training grounds.
In this article, I will explain how to gain superuser privileges on Mischief VM available on Hack The Box training grounds. During this journey, you will acquire some SNMP skills, understand the IPv6 routing principles, and learn how to deal with the access control list (ACL) regulating the files and folders permissions. In the end, I will show how to write an ICMP shell in Python and test it.
Today, I will give a brief overview of some of the best pentesting portals recognized by security experts. These training grounds enable ethical hackers to polish their skills while preserving ‘ethicality’ and exploit newly-discovered vulnerabilities while staying within the bounds of the law.
A good knowledge of pivoting (a technique used to route traffic to the victim and back through interim hosts) is essential for any ethical hacker. Furthermore, this skill is absolutely mandatory for corporate network pentesting. In this article, I am going two hack two simple virtual machines on Hack The Box and demonstrate how to route traffic in the course of pentesting.
In this article, I am going to show how to escalate from an unprivileged user to the administrator of the Active Directory domain controller. The demonstration will be performed on a virtual PC available for hacking on the HackTheBox online platform, the place where aspiring hackers polish their pentesting and cybersecurity skills. Of course, this VM is not overly complex, but if you intend to pentest corporate networks, it is very important to learn how to work with Active Directory
