OpenAdmin is an easy difficulty Linux machine that features an outdated OpenNetAdmin CMS instance. The CMS is exploited to gain a foothold, and subsequent enumeration reveals database credentials. These credentials are reused to move laterally to a low privileged user. This user is found to have access to a restricted internal application. Examination of this application reveals credentials that are used to move laterally to a second user. A sudo misconfiguration is then exploited to gain a root shell.
