Machine Synopsis

Traverxec is an easy Linux machine that features a Nostromo Web Server, which is vulnerable to Remote Code Execution (RCE). The Web server configuration files lead us to SSH credentials, which allow us to move laterally to the user `david`. A bash script in the user's home directory reveals that the user can execute `journalctl` as root. This is exploited to spawn a `root` shell.
