Description: "Raven 2 is an intermediate level boot2root VM. There are four flags to capture. After multiple breaches, Raven Security has taken extra steps to harden their web server to prevent hackers from getting in. Can you still breach Raven?"

Raven 2 is one of the most recent VMs to be uploaded to VulnHub. It was a fairly straightforward challenge demonstrating vulnerabilities and misconfigurations. In order to reduce the amount of content on any one page, each phase of the challenge has it's own section:

  1. Enumeration
  2. Exploitation
  3. Local Enumeration and Privilege Escalation
  4. Vulnerability Summary
