D0Not5top Boot2Root

* Update *

Now available on VulnHub

  • Fixed config error allowing super easy root access to the VM.
  • Fixed typo in flag6 clue. The updated OVA is now available for download below. Alternatively you can just view the fixed clue HERE

This is my second public Boot2Root, It’s intended to be a little more difficult than the last one I made.

That being said, it will depend on you how hard it is :D It’s filled with a few little things to make the player smile. Again there are a few “Red Herrings”, and enumeration is key.

Difficulty Rating


Capture The Flags

There are 7 flags to collect, designed to get progressively more difficult to obtain.

It’s possible to root this box without finding the flags, but to truly say you beat it you need to do both.

I Hope You Enjoy It.
