According to PortSwigger:  "SQL injection is a code injection technique, used to attack data-driven applications, in which malicious SQL statements are inserted into an entry field for execution."  And according to the SQLMap description:  "sqlmap is an open source penetration testing tool that automates the process of detecting and exploiting SQL injection flaws and taking over of database servers."

    This isn't a 101 of SQL Injection, if you're familiar with SQLMap, you've moved past 101.  This is the method I use when I leverage SQLMap.  I've seen other syntax for performing these tasks but I prefer to capture the POST request in Burp, dump the contents into a file, and then point SQLMap to my text file POST request.

    The description states that the box is "Beginner" and "Get the root shell i.e.(root@localhost:~#) and then obtain flag under /root)."  I don't want to put too much information up front but if you haven't been hacking for long, this is a blast from the past with a neat entry. 

    We kick off with Nmap:

    This box is described as "Intermediate" and the description states:  "Get the root shell i.e.(root@localhost:~#) and then obtain flag under /root)."

    I'll admit, I'm getting a little worn out on the multiple web serving troll ports.  It's basically the same box recycled with a different twist.  That being said, the privilege escalation was excellent.  There are multiple entrances for a low privilege shell and I cover two. 

    I believe this is the same author as Sumo.  The box states that it's "Beginner to Intermediate", the object is:  "Get the root shell i.e.(root@localhost:~#) and then obtain flag under /root)." and I'm glad I went back to read that because you don't need to elevate root to get the flag.  It also states:  "Warning: Be careful with "rabbit hole" -- not really sure exactly about that part.  Anyway, fun box so let's jump into it:

    "Burp Suite is a leading range of cybersecurity tools, brought to you by PortSwigger. It's the #1 tool suite for penetration testers and bug bounty hunters."

    When I write my posts, I like to use free tools because most of the free stuff is pretty awesome.  That being said, of the pay products, it's really hard to go wrong with Burp Suite Pro.  I think with the exception of some throttling, the pro version and free version are similar but at $400, it's not an expensive product for a business.
