OTW Narnia0 -> Narnia1

From what I’m understanding is it run’s the echo command and then runs cat with the previous command as STDIN since no arguments are given. Then that’s piped into the narnia0 executable. Pretty cool!

New set up

I’ve thought about a way to boot my main OS off a thumb drive or something like that so I’d be able to boot if off any PC or laptop (64 bit). It would make it so I could use any resource that I had at the time and pick… Read More »New set up


Oh man I’ve had quite the adventure over the last week + a few days. Without getting into too much detail, my wife and I were the guardians of 3 kids: 16 y/o girl, 11 y/o boy and 18 month boy. And man, was it eye opening and exhausting to… Read More »Kids

GDB + progress

I found out some information that had stumped me for a while. I thought that I had found a solution for narnia0, but it turns out that gdb can’t be used for priv esc, as least as far as root is concerned. I am getting a shell, but it’s as… Read More »GDB + progress

OTW Leviathan 4 -> 5

This one was easy. I guess it wants to be converted to text? Or maybe using su isn’t permitted for our user? Lets try.

OTW Leviathan 3 -> 4

This one built off of previous ones and seemed a lot easier, although there were some things that threw me for a loop. I could do one screenshot here, but I’ll break it down into chunks. This is interesting. It’s doing a string compare before asking for input. Weird, but… Read More »OTW Leviathan 3 -> 4
