HW09: HTB2 due Tue 28 Mar 13:20

In this assignment you will continue gaining exposure to and pra...
...hniques. You will document your progress in
a CherryTree document.


In this assignment you will continue work at the HackTheBox website (https://hackthebox.com). In this assignment we will shift our focus to the Get Started Tier 1 machines.

Update Kali

As usual we will keep Kali up-to-date by checking for updates and installing them. Open a terminal window and issue these commands:
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade

Tier 1 Machines

In your existing CherryTree document named hackthebox.ctb. Create a new top-level node named “Tier 1”. Then create some subnodes named for the first four tier 1 machines: Appointment, Sequel, Crocodile, and Responder.

As before, you will document your work on each of the virtual machines you attempt to hack with the goal of doing as much from memory as possible. That said, the tier 1 machines are a step up in difficulty from the tier 0 machines, so if you need to use the Walkthrough instructions to give yourself some hints, that is okay. The Walkthrough instructions do a really nice job of explaining theory behind various concepts so definitely take time to soak up all you can.

Here are some notes that may be helpful as you work with each machine:

Turn In Your Work

To provide verification that you have completed each of the steps above, create a screenshot that shows the four machines for which you obtained the required flag. The screenshot should include your username at the top of the screen.

Paste the screenshot in the Tier 1 root node and then turn in the document by uploading it into Canvas.
