Started OSCP 4/9/2016
After reading a lot of OSCP threads these past few months, I've decided to start my own. These threads have really helped me a lot so I hope maybe one day this one will help others too. So I got my email on Saturday evening, downloaded everything I had to and went to bed to start fresh on Sunday morning. I spent most of the day just enumerating, and it was a bit long so I thought I'd give a shot at Alice. Turns out, it was really an easy one so it wasn't that a big challenge for me. That was it for me for the day, so day 1, 1 host down. I After work on Monday I decided to take a shot at Oracle since I was already a bit familiar with the services running on it. I got root on it after about half an hour. I then started enumerating Mike, and fortunately or unfortunately, I got admin credentials by just running a scan. I found another way to get in, but just can't seem to get it to work, even though I'm pretty sure the way I'm trying is the right way. So I guess we can say I got root access to it since I was able to get the proof.txt file but I'll go back at it a second time eventually to have a second way in. After this I decided to take on Bob. I was able to get a low privileged shell with Metasploit yesterday evening but I want to try to avoid using it. I can confirm that I just got a shell to it without Metasploit so it's pretty nice although it seems to be a bit clunky. Now, I'm trying to escalate privileges on it.
