Hello, and welcome back to this Hack The Box Marathon, where we pwd boxes in the HTB Starting Point Tiers.
In this video, we examine SMB (Server Message Block) functionality and how the network’s endpoints may share access to files, printers, and serial ports thanks to the communication protocol.
This mostly appears on Windows-based devices. Applications and their users may connect to other resources, such as printers, by using the SMB protocol to access files on distant servers.
Client programs may access, read, move, create, and update files on distant servers using SMB’s secure and regulated mechanism. Additionally, the protocol can connect with server applications set up to take SMB client queries.
