Lab Scoreboard

Most of the web applications deployed in the real world use a web application framework. Not only it fastens the deployment process, but it is also more secure. However, if a vulnerability is found in a web application framework, it would affect all of the application based on the framework. 

In this lab exercise, the target server is running a Laravel application that is vulnerable to CVE-2018-15133. The exploitation of the vulnerability could result in Remote Code Execution vulnerability. 

Objective:  Analyze the vulnerability and the exploit code. 

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.2. Run "ip addr" to know the values of X and Y.
  • The target server should be located at the IP address 192.X.Y.3. 
  • Do not attack the gateway located at IP address 192.X.Y.1 
  • The leaked APP_KEY Environment variable value is D2txNsCj/dPQCw0K1AB8UWTo/YCbUxMA/Kibrr8jFpU=

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
