Solving hackfest2016: Sedna VM

First scanned the box.

As I was clicking around i found this.
With this I searched exploit-db and found this. I first tried to upload directly using the firefox plugin Poster but the uploads kept getting renamed and php extension were being filtered somehow.
So i decided to try and upload the exploit first then use it to upload the php-reverse-shell. This got me a limited shell on the system. For privilege escalation I used taviso's exploit [CVE-2015-1318 newpid (apport)] The link to the exploit can be found here. Thanks to Viper for the awesome challenge and ofcourse g0tmi1k and the whole vulnhub community who keep the war games coming.
