Hacker is getting something brand new: our own Capture The Flag! For those who are unfamiliar, Capture The Flags better known as CTFs are games where hackers have to find bugs and solve puzzles to find "flags," bits of data that tell the system you've completed a given task. Most CTFs run for a day or two and then end; that's not quite the case here. No matter your experience or skill sets, we are building levels to suit you; from the most basic web vulnerabilities to complex cryptography problems, and that's only what we have at launch.
We plan to tune these levels to cater to all hackers with engaging challenges that really solidify the things you learn in Hacker and beyond. For those of you who want a serious challenge, I particularly recommend the Encrypted Pastebin level; it's a tough one!
We've been thinking a lot about rewards and we have some awesome things planned. A few of these include badges for your HackerOne profile, reputation points, and invitations to private programs.
Have an idea? Let us know. As we grow we plan to also include levels that teach specific skills such as game hacking, cryptography, embedded experience, and more. Our goal is to help hackers learn new skills in a practical setting that can be applied immediately to get bounties in private programs and help customers reduce their risk. Everyone wins! We're planning on releasing one new level per month initially, but we hope to increase that over time.

That means the server communicates with database.

There might be injection here. After a few tries I came across this on the edit page. After observing, the page ID of the two default pages are 1 and 2, and the article ID of pages we created manually starts from 8.
I tried to visit all the missing page IDs manually. It was discovered that all pages showed a error except for page ID 5, which showed a Forbidden error. After XSS was identified in the title section, I tried to execute it in the content text box. So lets try to visit the edit page with normal user.
We can see that it redirects us to the login page. Let's capture the request and try to modify the methods. The hint states that "Credentials are secret, flags are secret.

In each level you're searching for a number of flags -- unique bits of data -- which you get by discovering and exploiting vulnerabilities. As you progress, you'll receive invitations to private programs on HackerOne, jump-starting your bounty hunting career.

Got an idea for content? Let us know. I have a question on the course content You can email hacker hackerone. Terms Privacy Security.Today we will be solving Micro-CMS v1, there are total of 4 flags to be found.
The objective of it is to tamper with every input available to the user. Looking at the newly created page number is 9. I was thinking if the home page had only 2 page created where the numbering is 1 and 2 respectively.
Why is the page numbering 9? So, I just do brute force directory by inputting number from 1 to 9. I find that newly created page can be edited and republished. So I went to my newly created page and click on edit. Go to the URL and changed the number from 9 to 6. The page will load and you will be able to get your first flag. Basically, I was trying to do flag 1 but i chance upon it so here is the process of how I get flag 2.
In the edit page, where user can edit and republished the page. Hit the save button. Then, I finally understand why it trigger in this manner was because the vulnerabilities that I have identified was a stored XSS vulnerability.
Though the newly created page does not execute the script, the script is stored in the web application. From the previous image, you can see that the title input does not remove the script tag. Which can be a vulnerability in the web application. So how does it trigger the flag? Knowing that it is a stored XSS vulnerabilities, the web application will execute every script stored in the web application before executing my script thus, triggering the flag 1 to pop-up and after that click the okay button, and it will trigger my script.
For my own preference, I would used img tag to trigger an alert. The saved page is… On click……it will trigger an alert. However, I wonder why is there no flag appeared after I do so. Hence, finding the flag 3. We are just 2 new authors doing writeup on related Cybersecurity topics to educate ourselves.

For faster data retrieval with sqlmap you can use method HEAD to avoid the render time that the server takes to make the image. This works because HEAD is allowed and you are only looking the header response to be Hope it makes sense :.
There says the application is running on the uwsgi-ngnix-flask-docker-image What does it mean? Sure, the trick is basically just to use the SQL commit statement.
The albums table is also vulnerable. I wrote a short python script that helps with the injection with an example usage. Flag 0: eg.

Any advise would be highly appreciated as i am stuck on this for days.I feel I am really close on a few of the challenges, but being new to the scene, it would be great to have a place to refer to instead of continually banging my head against the wall.
I would then be able to re-trace the steps it took to get to those solutions, or see if I was off by a simple encoded character or something. So, my question is, has anyone here completed those CTFs? I took a break from them for now and am using some other resources. I plan on going back to them in a few weeks. I will probably do a writeup with hints and possible solutions as long as they are okay with it. The idea is awesome, could just use a little more support for the beginner side of the spectrum.
Have you started working on the hints and solution yet? If so could you post a link to them. I am getting stuck on the easy ones, and I am not sure what I am missing. What resources are you using to learn? I have been keeping notes of how and what I have solved for the most part though. I recommend joining the RedSec discord channel, lots of helpful and smart people.
I can get you an invite if you need one. Then when you feel good about that one, move on. I started out with breadth first, which is nice, but a lot of programs have already had the low hanging fruit picked and that is all you will probably find with breadth and little depth. I read through both those books, and I only found half as many flags.
I tend to over complicate it, and I have been stuck on the easy levels for a while now. I tried some of the moderate levels, but have not found one there yet. I have been doing the same thing, I write down how I found them all, plus what I have tried, and any interesting finds that might lead some where.
It takes time for sure. I just sent you a message with an invite link. Feel free to PM me anytime, my name is the same as it is here. Could you get me an invite to the RedSec discord channel? Thank you. I did solve the other easy and medium challenges including the ones you mentioned in your original post and this is the last one for me to solve plus the two hard ones which I havent looked at yet.
Maybe you or someone else have some time to discuss the challenge, what I have tried so far and what else I could look into? Any further help or advice will be much appreciated. Hi there, would be nice if I also could get an invite to RedSec if you dont mind. Greetings absoThemay I kindy ask for an invite. Sorry if this is more of a General Security Discussion topic.

HackerOne offers Hacker - a free online course about web security. The course is taught through video lessons where you don't have to go through the course in order, but you can simply watch the lessons on the topics that you want to learn about. The course offers a range of topics you can learn about.
They range from writing reports, setting up Burp proxy, cookie security, to clickjacking and crypto attacks. The CTF serves as the official coursework for the class. You can still access the old coursework on the github repo. If you get stuck, you can select Hints to receive a hint. Keep in mind that most levels have a total of hints, and hints can only be accessed on an increasing timer, as the time before accessing each subsequent hint increases.[Kali Linux] CTF Bandit : Level 0 → Level 1 [Over the wire]
