Bandit.Lvl14 – private SSH key

This is the blog post series related to Bandit Wargame from OverTheWire community. It is my attempt to challenge myself and play some Wargames as suggested by CTF Field Guide.

Previous challenge – Lvl13 – data hexdump

Goal

The password for the next level is stored in /etc/bandit_pass/bandit14 and can only be read by user bandit14. For this level, you don’t get the next password, but you get a private SSH key that can be used to log into the next level. Note: localhost is a hostname that refers to the machine you are working on

Key PowerShell cmdlet(s)

  • New-SSHSession -KeyFile

Next level – Lvl15 – localhost & port 30000

Thanks a lot for reading.
