Learn to exploit a vulnerable CMS(Content Management System) using Remote Code Execution
“Bolt” The main character of the animated film
This writeup is based on the room “Bolt” on the TryHackMe platform. Its a beginner level room where a vulnerability in a CMS version is exploited to get the root access on the target machine.
Knowledge of the following is recommended to solve this challenge tough the toolsare very easy to use and can be searched while solving the tasks.
P.S I highly recommend you guys try to solve these tasks on your own first and if you get stuck you can always refer to this writeup.
Navigate to the room “Bolt” on THM. Deploy the machine and connect to the THM network using OpenVPN. verify that you are connected on THM network by checking the tun0 or tun1 interface using the ifconfig command on the terminal
Let’s run a Nmap scan against the target machine to see which ports are open and what kind of services are running on those ports
Nmap Scan against the Target machine
As we can see from the above Nmap scan three ports are currently open. Let’s explore these on by one. We see a web server running on port 80. Navigating to the target machine IP we see the below page. We find nothing interesting on this page.
Webserver Running on Port80
Let’s try port 8000 as it is also running some kind of web application
From the above screenshot, we can see that a CMS is running on port 8000. Let us explore it a bit, navigating to different tabs, and check if we can find something interesting. So we found a username that could be useful in are upcoming tasks.
Static code analysis is a method of debugging by examining source code before a program is run. It's done by analyzing a set of code against a set (or multiple sets) of coding rules. Static code analysis and static analysis are often used interchangeably, along with source code analysis.
There are more code smells. Let’s keep changing the aromas. We see several symptoms and situations that make us doubt the quality of our development. Let's look at some possible solutions.
In this video, I'll be talking about when do I think code is ready to be sold. 🔴 Subscribe for more https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMA8gVyu_IkVIixXd2p18NQ?...
The story of Softagram is a long one and has many twists. Everything started in a small company long time ago, from the area of static analysis tools development. After many phases, Softagram is focusing on helping developers to get visual feedback on the code change: how is the software design evolving in the pull request under review.
We, at Analytics India Magazine, spoke to founder and CEO, Vishal Rai, to understand how Embold can detect anti-patterns in code for seamless integration. Embold started a decade ago, with the vision of creating a product that can revolutionise the way developers write and design code.
