You will be provided with osquery shell on the machine. You have to run appropriate queries and answer the following questions:
- What is the path of the SSH private key for user ‘john’?
- A process is running with root privilege whose binary has been deleted from the file system. Find the path of the deleted binary.
- Find the path to the binary of a process which has created many zombie processes.
- One of the users is running a setuid binary owned by user root. Find the name of the spawned process.
- Find the path to the binary of the process which is encrypting files on the file system.
- Find the name of the process which has the lowest CPU priority.
- Please don't use Ctrl+C as that will shut down the osquery shell. If you use it by mistake, it is recommended to restart the lab.
- osquery documentation is available here: https://osquery.io/schema/3.3.2

Technical Support for this Lab:
There is a reason we provide unlimited lab time: you can take as much time as you need to solve a lab. However, we realize that sometimes hints might be necessary to keep you motivated!
We currently provide technical support limited to:
- Giving hints for a lab exercise
- In rare circumstances, if you have totally given up (NO!!!) then tell you how to solve it. This will be limited to sharing the solution video or lab report
- A lab exercise fails to load or has errors in it
If you need technical support, please email email@example.com clearly mention the name and link of the lab exercise and other essential details. The more descriptive you are, the faster we can help you. We will get back to you within 24 hours or less.
For adminitrative queries, billing, enterprise accounts etc. please email firstname.lastname@example.org
