In this challenge we will look at the dictionary attacks on Nginx server. Please start the lab and answer the following questions:
- What are the authentication types being used for /Admin and /Administrator folder? Use curl to check.
- Find the password of user “admin” which is required to access the /Admin directory. Use suitable metasploit module with password dictionary: /usr/share/metasploit-framework/data/wordlists/password.lst
- Find the password of user “admin” which is required to access the /Admin directory. Use Hydra with password dictionary: /usr/share/metasploit-framework/data/wordlists/password.lst
- Retrieve the flag hidden in the /Admin directory.
- Find the password of user “alice” which is required to access the /Administrator directory. Use suitable metasploit module with password dictionary: /usr/share/metasploit-framework/data/wordlists/unix_passwords.txt
- Find the password of user “alice” which is required to access the /Administrator directory. Use Hydra with password dictionary: /usr/share/metasploit-framework/data/wordlists/unix_passwords.txt
- Retrieve the flag hidden in the /Administrator directory.
- This lab is dedicated to you! No other users are on this network :)
- Once you start the lab, you will have access to a root terminal of a Kali instance
- Your Kali has an interface with IP address 192.X.Y.Z. Run "ip addr" to know the values of X and Y.
- The Target machine should be located at the IP address 192.X.Y.3.
- Do not attack the gateway located at IP address 192.X.Y.1

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

If you need technical support, please email firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
