Alfred Walkthrough - OSCP Preparation


As always, the first step consists of the reconnaissance phase as port scanning.

Ports Scanning

During this step, we’re gonna identify the target to see what we have behind the IP Address.

nmap -sV -sC -p0-65535 -oA nmap -Pn -T5


80/tcp   open  http    Microsoft IIS httpd 7.5
| http-methods: 
|_  Potentially risky methods: TRACE
|_http-server-header: Microsoft-IIS/7.5
|_http-title: Site doesn't have a title (text/html).
8080/tcp open  http    Jetty 9.4.z-SNAPSHOT
| http-robots.txt: 1 disallowed entry 
|_http-server-header: Jetty(9.4.z-SNAPSHOT)
|_http-title: Site doesn't have a title (text/html;charset=utf-8).
Service Info: OS: Windows; CPE: cpe:/o:microsoft:windows

Enumerating Port 80

If we browser URL:80 we’ll get this!

There’s an email that hints towards a domain name let’s run gobuster to see if there’s any files or directories hidden.


gobuster -w /usr/share/wordlists/SecLists/Discovery/Web-Content/common.txt -u -s '200,301,403' 2>/dev/null

Enumerating Port 8080

Nmap result revels there’s Jetty 9.4 Installed.


8080/tcp open http Jetty 9.4.z-SNAPSHOT

The default credential for Jenkins is admin:admin


Method #1 - Getting Reverse Shell Through Metasploit

I searched for searchsploit Jenkins and found this,


And we got the shell!

Method #2 - Getting Reverse Shell Manually

Login to Jenkins using admin:admin credentials.

Click on project.

Let’s configure it!

If we scroll down there’s 'Execute Windows bash command' from where we can get our reverse shell.

Click Apply and Save!


Privilege Escalation

Now, let’s start with Windows privilege escalation.

Windows User Impersonation

whoami /all
whoami /priv

SeImpersonatePrivilege Impersonate a client after authentication Enabled

We’ll use incognito to escalate privileges.

Incognito v2.0 actually implements the exploitation of one of these cases already. If an account is not an Administrative user but has been granted SeDebugPrivilege and SeImpersonatePrivilege then Incognito v2.0 will automatically enable these privileges and use them to gain access to all tokens and so effectively escalate the SYSTEM. I don’t expect it will be particularly common to find this situation in practice but it may prove useful.

Security Implications of Windows Access Tokens – A Penetration Tester’s Guide

Let’s impersonate some tokens!

load incognito
list_tokens -g

impersonate_token "BUILTIN\Administrators"

We have to migrate to another process to properly use our reverse shell.
