HackTheBox Mango Write-up

Mango was an interesting box when it comes to enumeration. It taught me to look more closely and not brush off anything just because I have seen it before. The box is also a prime lesson to aggregate your recon info in a structured manner so it’s easier to apply it at other points when you hit a dead end somewhere. There were also some nice opportunities for small, specialised attack scripts, which I particularly enjoyed!


HackTheBox Postman Write-up

Postman was an easy-going box. It required careful enumeration and beyond that did not have too much resistance in privilege escalation. This makes it a prime example for real-world M&M security where the initial foothold is hard, but there is few resistance on the inside.
