It is a easy Linux machine from hack the box which has a little Dir enumeration followed by exploitation of a python file.

So the very first step is to visit the website.
Nothing interesting there so let’s run directory enumeration tools.
gobuster dir -u 10.10.10.68 -w /usr/share/wordlists/dirbuster/directory-list-2.3-medium.txt -x php,html,txt
Getting user flag
So let’s see what’s in there .So i got some thing in the /dev
When i clicked on one of the .php file it opened a shell as www-data.
And then i got the user flag through this.
Getting reverse shell
Let’s get a reverse shell now.
Got a reverse shell.
When i show the output after sudo -l then i understood that we can run cmds as script manager
Then we switched into it.
The name script manager was a hint for me .So i looked into the script section.
I saw that the output was having a root right so i wrote my reverse shell in test.py.
Getting root flag
And when it ran it gave me the root.
