Lab Walkthrough Video:


In this pivoting challenge, the network architecture is as shown below:

Kali  ----------->   Target A -------------> Target B

Your mission is to get the flags kept in flagX.txt file on both Target A and Target B

Instructions: 

  • This lab is dedicated to you! No other users are on this network :) 
  • Once you start the lab, you will have access to a root terminal of a Kali instance
  • Your Kali has an interface with IP address 192.X.Y.Z. Run "ip addr" to know the values of X and Y.
  • The Target A should be located at the IP address 192.X.Y.3. 
  • Once you compromise Target A, you should be able to use that as a pivot to exploit Target B
  • Do not attack the gateway located at IP address 192.X.Y.1 
  • postgresql is not running by default so Metasploit may give you an error about this when starting

How to solve this?


  • Metasploit is installed on the Kali instance you will get access to
  • All exploitation can happen using Metasploit and Proxychains with third party scripts/tools 
  • You are free to use other tools line Nmap for enumeration


Verify:
1. FLAG1
 
2. FLAG2

There is a reason we provide unlimited lab time: you can take as much time as you need to solve a lab. However, we realize that sometimes hints might be necessary to keep you motivated!

We currently provide technical support limited to:

  • Giving hints for a lab exercise
  • In rare circumstances, if you have totally given up (NO!!!) then tell you how to solve it. This will be limited to sharing the solution video or lab report
  • A lab exercise fails to load or has errors in it

If you need technical support, please email  attackdefense@pentesteracademy.com  clearly mention the name and link of the lab exercise and other essential details. The more descriptive you are, the faster we can help you. We will get back to you within 24 hours or less.
