Hacking Lab

During this week, you will be required to complete a pen testing challenge in iLabs. This task is intended to test your penetration testing skills.

Challenge Scenario

FNB is a large multinational investment banking firm that engages in global investment banking, investment management, securities and other financial services primarily with institutional clients. Computers of FNB employees around the world were systematically being victimized by rampant hacking. The hacking was not only widespread, but was being executed so flawlessly that attackers, after compromising a system, stole everything of value and completely erased their tracks within 20 minutes.

Understandably, the FNB management was concerned about their network and the reputation of their organization. The sheer volume of FNB employees’ systems hacked around the world was an alarming revelation for them.

The management has decided to take the service of a penetration tester / security auditor to audit their networks for security vulnerabilities in order to avoid future attacks. You have been identified as a third-party penetration tester to perform the security audit of their information infrastructure. Your challenge is to perform a thorough pen test.

Infrastructure Available to You

Like any large organization, FNB’s internal network consists of several subnets housing various organizational units. The subnets are configured with non-routable standard private IPs as illustrated below:
