13 – HEEEEEEERE’S Johnny!

Solve

Okay, so we found some important looking files on a linux computer. Maybe they can be used to get a password to the process. Connect with nc 2018shell.picoctf.com 42165. Files can be found here: passwd shadow.

Solution

Downloaded the two file

passwd and shadow

opened them in a text editor and had 

passed

root:x:0:0:root:/root:/bin/bash

shadow

root:$6$IGI9prWh$ZHToiAnzeD1Swp.zQzJ/Gv.iViy39EmjVsg3nsZlfejvrAjhmp5jY.1N6aRbjFJVQX8hHmTh7Oly3NzogaH8c1:17770:0:99999:7:::

Connecting to 2018shell.picoctf.com 42165

it’s asking me to login straight away I tried root > toor as I can see the user is root from the password and shadow file.

Only because I’ve used Jonnyripper before I tried this on localhost and i got the password

the matrix
