The following is a rolling list of confirmed issues with current THM rooms, the workarounds and expected timeline of resolution. This is a handy reference to check against in the case that you experience with an issue with a room.

Thanks to Jabba/Heiss for his help in compiling this.

Blaster

Issue: No web-browser history for the CVE.

Current workaround: The original room for this - Retro - has the CVE as expected.

Expected timeline of resolution: Indefinite.


Blue

Issue: Sometimes the Eternalblue exploit does not work.

Current workaround: This is as a result of the exploit itself. Eternal blue has an equal chance of working as or crashing the VM. Check your Metasploit options and redeploy the Instance. It may take a few tries.

Expected timeline of resolution: None as it is due to the exploit itself.


Cross-Site Scripting

Issue: Flags may not appear when using some payloads

Current workaround: You may have to try alternative payloads for that specific question. Some flags expect very specific payloads.

Expected timeline of resolution: The room is currently being entirely recreated.


JokerCTF

Issue: The lxd container does not appear in the lxd image list.

Current workaround: Redeploy the VM or use an alternate method not involving lxd.

Expected timeline of resolution: None as there is an alternate method not involving lxd.


Learn Linux

Issue: Sometimes you receive random permission denied errors when running the binary files.

Current workaround: Ensure the conditions that the binary checks for are correct (i.e. environment variables as per the task). If they are, redeploy the Instance.

Expected timeline of resolution: Indefinite.


OWASP Top 10 (Task 21)

Issue: http://machine_ip/reflected does not work

Current workaround: Just go to http://machine_ip/ and then click on "reflected"

Expected timeline of resolution: Indefinite.


Shodan

Due to the nature of Shodan updating a lot, the answers can become outdated.

If this is the case, please let us know via Reddit, the Discord or forums with the following:

  • Question/task number that is out of date
  • The correct, current answer
  • The search query (URL of the search) that shows you this answer.


Tartaraus

Issue: Files needed for privilege escalation may not appear.

Current workaround: Redeploy the VM.

Expected timeline of resolution: Unknown.
