Finding Hidden Flags

The room Linux Challengeson the TryHackMe platform is great for brushing up your Linux skills. I would be going through the entire room step by step and on our way, we will find flags hidden throughout the systems which will lead to the completion of each task systematically. If you are already familiar with the Linux Commands and services have a look at Learn to exploit and take over a vulnerable Linux based machine

P.S I recommend you, folks to try solving the challenges on your own and if you get stuck somewhere you can always come back here
