Level Goal

The password for the next level can be retrieved by submitting the password of the current level to port 30000 on localhost.

Solution

Password: use sshkey.private from previous level

To login, we’re gonna specify that we have a private key we want to login with. Use -i to specify an identifying file.`

You’ll probably be prompted about adding a key or trusting a key or whatever, just type yes and you’ll be logged in.

The level goal from Level 13 told us the password is stored in /etc/bandit_pass/bandit14. Let’s take a look.

So we now know bandit14‘s password, but to get bandit15‘s we need to submit it to port 30000 on localhost.

Netcat (nc) is a utility we can use to read and write from network connections. So let’s use it to connect.

Skadoosh.
