I'm having some trouble with the CTF exercise for the SANS SEC560 course and I'm hoping someone that has gone through the course can point me in the right direction. I took the class on-demand last month and passed the GPEN. I just went back over the books and decided to do the CTF. I don't want to post too much information and ruin anything for anyone that hasn't taken the class yet so I'm going to be vague. I obtained the first username which was in a pretty obvious location. I'm now trying to obtain the password for that account so I can move on to the rest of the exercise. I cannot seem to get this password. I have worked on this for hours and have had a password guessing tool attempt well over 60,000 passwords. Can anyone point me in the right direction. Please don't give me the password. I'm only looking for a slight bump in the right direction so I can complete this on my own. I already emailed Ed Skoudis but I'm sure he is a busy guy so I don't know when he'll have a chance to get back to me. I plan on posting this on the GIAC advisory board also.
