Doesn’t look like anything useful but we know the webpage is running as ISI 6.0 from Nmap results.

So I started searching for exploits available for it.

Later I found this

https://www.rapid7.com/db/modules/exploit/windows/iis/iis_webdav_scstoragepathfromurl

So I opened my metasploit and tried that exploit.

And I checked whether its vulnerable or not and yeah its vulnerable.

I got the shell

Privilege Escalation:

Background the Session and Lets try local_exploit_suggester

Seems like lot of exploits. Before doing that we need to migrate process inorder to make it stable. So I won’t face any errors while using any exploit.

Now we can try the exploits, I selected randomly, Started from lastone.

exploit/windows/local/ppr_flatten_rec

It worked!! We got Authority\System
