OSCP Exam, Episode II

exam-lego-2So how is a OSCP exam ??

Well as I blogged I failed the first time. This time I was pretty sure that my chance this time was a solid 50:50. I still had some problems with web apps (being from a infrastructure / paper background). So lets see how the day went: (Edited out the Machine Nrs etc out of my notes.

I was super cool for the start .. my time line: (local time)

11:00 start , some trouble with the vm … 11:15 in the network


12:25 25 points (you might now which 25 points .. not spoiling)

13:22 first look at machine

14:00 finished first look on another machine


14:16 Start Look at another Machine

14:42 finished the first look on another machine (the lowest points “easy box“)


16:25 Did Rotation 1 on a machine

17:08 Rotation 1 on a machine, got local shell … cursed a lot bc of local.txt

That moment you celebrate your local shell .. just to find no command line tool to get the contensts of the local proof file to the screen for the screenshot … ARGGGGGHHH

17:45-18:35 eating out with girl to get head clear .. looking good 35 points so far

19:32 Finished Rotation 1 on another machine

20:26 Rotation 2 on a machine

21:33 a Machine Rotation

-21:45 short Lego Building of http://zusammengebaut.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/lego-brickheadz-iron-man-41590.jpg to get the head clear

22:45 Rotation 2 on a machine

23:47 Derping around between machines

00:47 More Derping between machines -> local Shell on a medium box

45 Points so Far in 12,5 h


1:25 Priv Escalation Try on local shell a

2:10 Back to another machine

4:00 Stop derping on “easy box” .. easy machine is not easy


7:08 my notes getting blurry .. no cm gained …


around 9:00 2h left my girl gets up .. moode is down ..my VM starts to behave wierd, the laptop is going to overheat and I can’t copy and paste any longer between host and Kali .. a lot of manual typing …


10:00 deciding to call it a fail and take some sleep

13:00 sending in the failed report to get some feedback for the reporting template .. better know in advanced if something is missing for the next try

exam-lego-613:15 trying to get the dead animal out of my mouth and eat something

14:00 deciding to go back to the laptop to attack the lab with my last 4 lab days

15:00 still derping around watching youtube and building https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/778/32753576282_9ab8cf03b9_b.jpg

16:41 now (Blog first draft)

realising that my idea to take better notes than the first exam worked out 50% .. my handwriting still gets super bad with sleepyness .. a lot in my latex eport and x screenshots etc .. but will not help me if I get the same machines again …

1,5 Days later: Well after some thoughts .. well webapps broke my neck .. potential, to be honest I didn’t found any bugs on some of the machines. And the other machines, to be honest on a rel world test I would put them to the back of my list. A normal company often has that one corpse in the cellar. You know that xp system running your accounting software, or the NT server etc. In the lab you often have problems with compiling for older kernels .. well in the exam I had .. as the Thai say :” Same Same but Different”. Right now also questioning my strategy of switching between machines often … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkraRj8uAYQ .. well might have some chats and will be do the exam with a better SOP in the near future 😉

Greetings Ucki
