Uname -a, the first task with the virtual machine.

 

 


Today's first task with the HTB virtual machine. Namely, to launch the virtual machine and enter 'uname -a' in the terminal.

 Everything starts up quite quickly, so I quickly open the Mate terminal from the top menu - and typing 'uname -a' takes just a few seconds, and I get the response: 

Linux htb-sphvjztyuc 6.1.0-1parrot1-amd64 #1 SMP PREEMPT_DYNAMIC Parrot 6.1.15-1parrot1 (2023-04-25) x86_64 GNU/Linux.

Since I won't spoil, the correct answer was just one word - the system name - but it's worth sometimes using the attached hints. They can humorously guide you in the right direction.


.....

Today I'll do one more task. Starting the virtual machine and answering the question: 'What is the proof text displayed in the Target website you browsed?' So, I copy the IP address that I need to open in my browser, and what do I see? 'Welcome to HTB Academy!' And below it, there's the proof - which is the answer to my second task for today :D

The correct answer, and I earned a few cubes! Time to call it a day.
