It is a great machine from hackthebox .It is Having BSD OS .which is very vulnerable .Starting with authentication bypass which gave the ssh-keys for a user .Then simple exploiting OPenBSD 6.6 vulnerabilities .

The highlighting part in the nmap result was that machine was running OpenBSD httpd.
so i started googling about it .But in the mean while I ran dirbuster.
Let’s see what /include had
/auth.php.swp gave an another domain so I quickly added that also to my host file.
Moreover I came to know that we can easily bypass the authentication in the openBSD.
So let’s try to bypass the authentication.
And it successfully bypassed the authentication.
But it says no OpenSSH keys found .
So let’ try to login into jennifer account .So I used Burp Suite to manipulate the request .
Getting SSH-Keys for Jennifer(user)
What I did was just added a username along with the PHPSESSID.
The next we got the ssh keys for jennifer.
Save it to my machine with 600 permissions .
Congratulations we logged in as jennifer and the user part is complete.
Exploiting OpenBSD 6.6 (root)
So now it’s time for the privilege escalation.
openkeys$ uname -a OpenBSD openkeys.htb 6.6 GENERIC#353 amd64 .
Looking at google I found that OpenBSD 6.6 is very much vulnerable.
I got a exploit from github .
And I got the root shell.
Thanks for reading Have a nice day …
