There is no information for this level, intentionally.

Okay, no information. I should ssh to the server, it has been a while that I had used ssh. Didn’t do any challenges for a while and started this week again. We can ssh into level 0 with the following command: ssh -p 2223

A couple things I checked:

  • If there is any passwordfiles in the home directory, Command: ls -lsa
  • If we can cat the password for leviathan1, Command: cat /etc/leviathan_pass/leviathan1

After checking the files again I saw a backup folder.

leviathan0@leviathan:~$ ls -lsa
total 24
4 drwxr-xr-x  3 root       root       4096 Aug 26 22:26 .

What is in here? There is a file names bookmarks.html. Lets cat this file, a lot of lines. Below is a snippet

<!DOCTYPE NETSCAPE-Bookmark-file-1>
<!-- This is an automatically generated file.

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

    <DT><H3 LAST_MODIFIED="1160249304" PERSONAL_TOOLBAR_FOLDER="true" ID="rdf:#$FvPhC3">Bookmarks Toolbar Folder</H3>

So lets cat this file again but grep for the word leviathan. We got a single line, with the password for leviathan1.

leviathan0@leviathan:~/.backup$ cat bookmarks.html | grep levia
<DT><A HREF=" | This will be fixed later, the password for leviathan1 is rioGegei8m" ADD_DATE="1155384634" LAST_CHARSET="ISO-8859-1" ID="rdf:#$2wIU71">password to leviathan1</A>

We got it 🙂 Up to the next challange.
