Lab Scoreboard

Lab Walkthrough Video:


A Kali GUI machine and a target machine running a vulnerable server are provided to you. The IP address of the target machine is provided in a text file named target placed on the Desktop of the Kali machine (/root/Desktop/target). 

Your task is to fingerprint the application using the tools available on the Kali machine and exploit the application using the appropriate Metasploit module.

Then, bypass UAC using the UACME tool

UACME:

  • Defeat Windows User Account Control (UAC) and get Administrator privileges.

  • It abuses the built-in Windows AutoElevate executables.

  • It has 65+ methods that can be used by the user to bypass UAC depending on the Windows OS version.

  • Developed by https://twitter.com/hFireF0X

  • Written majorly in C, with some code in C++


Objective: Gain the highest privilege on the compromised machine and get admin user NTLM hash.

Instructions:

  • Your Kali machine has an interface with IP address 10.10.X.Y. Run “ip addr” to know the values of X and Y.
  • The IP address of the target machine is mentioned in the file “/root/Desktop/target”
  • Do not attack the gateway located at IP address 192.V.W.1 and 10.10.X.1


Verify:
1. Admin NTLM Hash

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
