Objective 1

  • Username: bandit5
  • Password: koReBOKuIDDepwhWk7jZC0RTdopnAYKh
  • Port: 2220
  • IP/Hostname: bandit.labs.overthewire.org
user@localhost:~$ ssh -p 2220 [email protected]


Objective 2

There's a lot of directories here, so it would be best to use find to do a recursive search, while also searching for the most stringent property: 1033 bytes in size.

Search for a file within the inhere directory with a size of 1033c (unit indicating bytes)

bandit5@bandit:~$ find inhere -type f -size 1033c
bandit5@bandit:~$ cat inhere/maybehere07/.file2
