Over the Wire’s Bandit Challenge – Level 14


Level Instructions:

“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
bandit14@bandit:~$ nc localhost 30000

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.
