My 2nd boot2root machine for Vulnhub
This one is more realistic without any CTF elements and pretty straight forward.
Nothing fancy, nothing sophisticated. For initial foothold till root you must stick to the ultra basic stuff. Just keep it simple.
Most of the real life vulnerable systems I have faced are just outdated or misconfigured software/services.
I mean you probably won’t find a root password hidden inside an image or a cronjob that runs a world-writable bash script as root.
You can download it from here: https://www.vulnhub.com/entry/vulnuni-1,439/
