Here we go again with another of the early levels at ‘Over the Wire’, it says for this one.
The password for the next level is stored in a file called – located in the home directory
Commands you may need to solve this level
ls, cd, cat, file, du, find”
As usual, I will run the command ls so that I can see what directories and files there are in my location and I can see a file with the name – so they are starting to make it a little tricky.
In Linux/UNIX we can’t read the – as it is or even any file name that starts with a -, to do so we have to put the file path in front of the name.
So here I used:-
And got the flag.
The reason for using ./ is because In Linux ./ refers to the current directory.
From there we exit bandit 1 and connect to bandit2 using the flag as the password and head to the next level.
