It is from rapid7 the creators of Metasploit. Now boot up Metasploit by typing


The site we found is already giving us the right commands to exploit this. We just need to follow it

Once the exploit have run then type in shell. It will spawn a better shell. The user.txt and root.txt are in the usual spots

Conclusion of Lame – HackTheBox

Did this box on my own within less then 5 minutes. I have learned Metasploit by just doing it. I also have bought a book in the past Metasploit: The Penetration Tester’s Guide. So I already knew something about Metasploit. Hacking in the early stages is nothing more then knowing the tools. At least that is what I think. I’m still in the beginning fase myself

And this conclude the write up for lame on hackthebox
