I’m Neelesh, The pwned machine is first part of DC series from Vulnhub-Offensive Security. So let’s get started!

Initially after arp scan, we got the target IP and exported the target IP as environment variable and started the nmap scan:

Clearly, by looking at the results we jumped to port 80 which is CMS based drupal site although it was already verified in nmap scan

We have to enumerate, since the initial enumeration sprays didn’t work (eg. default passwords sprays). But then we scanned the site with droope scan

We found some interesting stuffs like CMS versions, after enum through searchsploit we found:

As per searchsploit results we shot the msfconsole and filled up with required options for meterpreter session:

During post enumeration, we found a flag4.txt as shown:

That’s all for now!

Until Next Time,

Do Good and Good will come to you
