Hello!!! This is the first machine that I have solved recently on HackTheBox. It is a simple box. Let’s start with recon.


Starting with a Nmap scan. The command Iused is: sudo nmap -sSV -sC -Pn MACHINE_IP

Following screenshot shows the results. Port 80 is open

Another Boot to Root room. Deploy the machine.

Starting with the enumeration part using the tool nmap port scanner we got the answer to second question.

Using the flag -sC in nmap command we can perform basic vulnerability scan. We found three open ports that are 21,22 and 80.

Deploy the machine and start with basic enumeration part using the tool nmap. The command used is: nmap -sSV -Pn MACHINE_IP

We found two open ports that are 22 and 80.

Information Gathering

I used the command namp -sSV -Pn -sC MACHINE_IP for port scanning. Three open ports are found that are:

  • 21 FTP
  • 22 SSH
  • 80 HTTP

With the default script scan (-sC), I found that Anonymous login is allowed at FTP.
