Access level

ssh leviathan0@leviathan.labs.overthewire.org -p 2223
# Password: leviathan0

Level goal

Find the password to access next level on the leviathan0 instance.

Explanation

We start inspecting what file is usable on leviathan0 user, using ls we see below a .backup folder.

leviathan0@leviathan:~$ ls -a
.  ..  .backup  .bash_logout  .bashrc  .profile

leviathan0@leviathan:~/.backup$ ls
.  ..  bookmarks.html

Inside of it there’s a bookmarks.html file.

We can pretend the password may be located in this file and use grep to find something interesting.

leviathan0@leviathan:~$ grep "password" bookmarks.html
<DT><A HREF="http://leviathan.labs.overthewire.org/passwordus.html | This will be fixed later, the password for leviathan1 is rioGegei8m" ADD_DATE="1155384634" LAST_CHARSET="ISO-8859-1" ID="rdf:#$2wIU71">password to leviathan1</A>

Password is rioGegei8m.

I promise, next challenges will be more gripping 😃.
