Over the Wire’s Bandit Challenge – Level 14
“The password for the next level can be retrieved by submitting the password of the current level to port 30000 on localhost.”
bandit14@bandit:~$ cat /etc/bandit_pass/bandit14 4wcYUJFw0k0XLShlDzztnTBHiqxU3b3e bandit14@bandit:~$ nc localhost 30000 4wcYUJFw0k0XLShlDzztnTBHiqxU3b3e Correct! BfMYroe26WYalil77FoDi9qh59eK5xNr
First, we need to print out the password to the current user bandit14. The location of the password /etc/bandit_pass/bandit14 was revealed in the previous challenge. Next we can establish a connection with localhost:30000 using either netcat or telnet. We paste the current password, once connected, and the password for bandit15 is returned.
