Here, I go through the methods for the “Meow” machine’s solution, which is from the “Starting Point” labs and has a “Very Easy” difficulty level.
Hack the Box is a platform that offers the most engaging, gamified, hands-on training possible to advance cybersecurity abilities. Choose between a PWNBOX or an OVPN (i.e. OpenVPN) connection when you log into the Hack the Box site and go to the Starting Point page.
PWNBOXes are pre-configured, browser-based virtual machines that can only be accessed with a HackTheBox VIP+ subscription. For this task, I utilized Kali Linux running in bare metal through a remote desktop along with the OVPN technique. Run the command shown below to launch a terminal window after downloading the VPN (.ovpn) configuration file.
