Vulnerable Nginx I
infra-nginx | Level: Easy | Total Lab Runs: 0 | Premium Lab |
Nginx, even though young by World Wide Web years, is as popular as Apache today. In this series of challenges, we hope to explore how attackers can exploit webapps running on Nginx arising due to server misconfigurations and/or application vulnerabilities. Take a look at the scenario below:
The directory listing is enabled for a specific directory on the web server due to a misconfiguration. In simple words, anyone can see the list of files/directories present in that directory by navigating to its location.
Objective: You have to find the credentials for the web app, login into it and retrieve the flag!
Which directory is used to save most of non-changing content of a web page?
The following activities are strictly prohibited on this website unless otherwise explicitly stated as allowed in the mission statement:
- Using automated scanners
- Using brute force attacks
- Denial of Service attacks
- Attacking other student machines in challenges where you might achieve a shell on the vulnerable system
- Attacking the lab infrastructure
Users violating the above will be either temporarily or permanently banned from the website.
If you are unsure about an activity, then please contact support to confirm that it is allowed on our website.
Technical Support for this Lab:
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
