Time to push myself. I decided to go for a “Medium to Hard” box, Tomato this time round. I’m really liking the boxes put forth by the SunCRS Team. This box really helped me solidify some tactics I struggled understand early on. Hopefully you learn something from this as well.
After my frustratingly fun adventure with Vulnhub’s Chili image, I decided to continue along and try another image from the SunCSR Team. The next image I found that was considered easy was Cherry. No hint this time. Sounds like a good time, doesn’t it? Let’s dive in! Information Gathering After discovering the IP address of my VM (192.168.1.39), I went to work running an nmap scan of the target system.
Thanks for checking out my first Vulnhub Box write up! I find these boxes really helpful as I start my journey into the world of cyber security. This is not going to be a traditional walkthrough. I’ll be documenting my entire (well…most) of my thought process, and where I went wrong. Since I’m just starting my journey into the realm of Cyber Security, I hope that some of my pitfalls will help others, and learn from my mistakes. While this one was considered easy, I found it frustrating, yet exciting. It’s always a great time when you get a chance to learn something new.
