Today we’re going to learn about the much-dreaded and (over)hyped topic of ‘Buffer Overflows’. I was always scared to death when I used to hear about Buffer Overlfows. I used to stare in horror at the writeups about it, I thought I would never pass the OSCP because of this ‘fear’ and the so-called insane difficulty level of such labs. If you think similar like I did once upon a time, it’s time to ‘RELOAD’. And please know this that it’s natural to have that fear. I am damn sure that after following this write-up, you shall have no fear about anything. A big Thank-You to @thecybermentor, Stephen Bradshaw and @purpl3f0xsec for being a part of my learning experience.
Unboxing SolidState; a fun box by creator ch33zplz - This wasn’t my first box on HTB but still I’ll start my blog series with this. You will come to know why I am giving such an honour to this box. Just stay with me till the end. I thoroughly enjoyed solving this box & the ‘State’ of satisfaction after getting root was totally something else! I promise, by the end, it will be a ‘Solid’ stroll down your memory lane!
