WH01 - 500pts


Access the site at https://cfta-wh01.allyourbases.co and find a way to get the flag from the CMS.


  1. 1.
    Since the website looks pretty empty we can try some directory busting: gobuster dir -u https://cfta-wh01.allyourbases.co/ -t 200 --exclude-length 16 --extensions txt,html -w /usr/share/wordlists/dirb/common.txt. We use the common dirb list included with Kali and also check for files with txt or html extensions.
    gobuster output:

    We find an interesting /admin.html file, which is empty, and /readme.txt. /readme.txt says the following:
    To use the CMS make sure to visit /admin.html from allowed IPs on the local network.

  3. 3.
    So, /admin.html only works when a request comes from an IP on the local network. It's possible that the service is simply checking the X-Forwarded-For HTTP header so let's try that.
  4. 4.
    We can use a Python script to loop through every possible IP and make a get request with the X-Forwarded-For set to the IP that is currently being tested. If the length of the response is greater than 0, we print the response. This finds the flag after a few seconds.
