Explosion is a boot2root machine on HackTheBox. It has “Very Easy” difficulty and is part of Tier 0 starting point challenges.

Enumeration

I’ve started the enumeration phase with an Nmap scan:

sudo nmap -p- 10.129.183.199 -sC -sV -oN nmap/initial

This command will scan all ports of the target with scripts and version enumeration. Results will be outputted additionally to the file “initial” inside the “nmap” directory.

The results of the scan showed, that the target is a Windows machine and is running an RDP and SMB server:

Enumeration

I’ve started with a Nmap scan with the following parameters:

sudo nmap -p- 10.129.1.17 -sC -sV -oN nmap/initial

This will scan all ports on the target, as well as invoke scripts and version enumeration. Finally it will output the results into “intial”-file in “nmap” directory.

After running Nmap, there was only one port open. Port 23 was serving Telnet:
