Hacker’s Dome – First Blood | The Machines
First of all, I would like to thank you all for the great support you showed us during the competition. This motivates us for developing Hacker’s Dome even further. We learned a lot during this first edition but, most importantly, we learned how we can make things better for all of our players.
You asked for official information, so here it is. We’re starting with the pristine images that were part of First Blood.
Here are the credentials for accessing them after you set them up on your own hypervisor:
- ctf01-01 root password:
- ctf01-02 xubuntu password:
Both of them are SSH enabled. The images were created using VirtualBox, but they should work under most hypervisors out there. For some hypervisors, you may need to covert the images to an appropriate image format.
Please notice that the ctf01-02 machine was watered down during the competition due to some technical issues that we discovered. The short version of the story: the exploit that was needed for getting a foothold on this machine proved to be problematic over the VPN connection, even though I could successfully run the exploit by using my own network. Since this is the original image, some of our contestants’ write-ups do not apply. You can take a stab at owning this piece until we do the official write-ups.
