mRr3b00t Learns to play HTB again!

I rarely get a chance to play HTB these days 🙁 but today I thought i’d get back on it.. then I had a three hour battle with a graphics driver and Vmware Workstation so that basically ruined that idea…. but I thouht I’d try and remember how to CTF again.. and boy do you get slow fast!

  • Take note of the IP
    • This is your scope
  • Take note of the OS version
  • Get you digital notebook ready
