Level Goal

The password for the next level is stored in a hidden file in the inhere directory.

Commands you may need to solve this level

ls, cd, cat, file, du, find


Looks like I’ll be changing the directory in this level. I know how to do that. Let’s use the ‘ls’ command to see what we’ve got.

bandit3@bandit:~$ ls
inhere

‘inhere’ is a directory. So I can use ‘cd’ to enter it and another ‘ls’.

bandit3@bandit:~$ cd inhere
bandit3@bandit:~/inhere$ ls
bandit3@bandit:~/inhere$

Wait, nothing is in here.

… Oh, that’s right. It says in the instructions it’s hidden. I’ll use the ‘mon ls’ command to see if there’s a way to see hidden files.

The option ‘-a’ will show me all the files, even hidden ones. Nice!

I’ll open the file using the tricks I’ve used in the previous levels.

bandit3@bandit:~/inhere$ cat ./.hidden

And on to the next.
