2020 Metasploit Community CTF – 8 of Spades (port 1080) [Networks]

Port 1080 shows a SOCKS 5 service running.

We tried establishing a connection through this service, but upon failure we thought it was a false positive brought by the default nmap scripts, so we configured a proxychains route using SOCKS 4.

Scanning the network with the socks proxy already set, a new port 8080 was found with a web server running on it. Using cURL, a file could be seen in the source code, the one needed to complete the 8 of Spades challenge.

We could now wget it and retrieve the md5 hash of the image.
