Hack Invite Code To Register - Hack The Box


Recently I found another website that have more advanced hacking challenges...I know I need to cover other websites which i have promised you but something in this website is interesting.For registering in this website,you need to hack and get an invite code.So, I thought to deviate from our regular topic and talk about it.
The WEBSITE is

HACK THE BOX

They are asking invite code for registering.As usual i checked source-code of the page.Since I found nothing suspicious,I started looking at JavaScript and found one that seems can help me.


<script defer src="/js/inviteapi.min.js"></script>

I visited the js..There is a script and i found some keywords from that like "log","invite","verifyInviteCode","makeInviteCode"
I went back to our registration page now right clicked and selected inspect.

SELECT CONSOLE


 Try typing in each keyword and check if function exist.


I got output when i checked verifyInviteCode();
But, there was no help from that

when I checked makeInviteCode();
I found something encrypted!
Encryption type is specified in it as base64.
so i used an online base64 decoder for decoding it!

The information i got was:

In order to generate the invite code, make a POST request to /api/invite/generate

hurreehh!! we are almost there now we know where to look for
but if you directly visit the page by 
https://www.hackthebox.eu/api/invite/generate

you will get error because its specified clearly , we need to use a post request!
How to do it? no need to code something new its right in our reg page
in the page, right click and select inspect
you will see
change form action to:

Now, type something in input and hit sign up.
BANG!!

you get something informative!!

I got this


{"success":1,"data":{"code":"UkdSVFotTk9aQkUtTllCSlktTEVOVFMtS0RUWVA=","format":"encoded"},"0":200}

We have the code but in encrypted form!
To find which encryption is used, goto

Hash Type Checker

now paste the code and check which is encryption type,I got base64
then goto 

Base64 Decode

for decoding base64 and i got my invite code!

Isn't it  a spoiler?
No! the invite code differ for each person and so you will get your own code!
GOOD LUCK!

What Is Hacking?Who can be a Hacker?

Well the question is quiet simple,but i choose to explain it basically so that every one can understand it.
Before that i must say,don't be interested to hacking by seeing images of hacker like the one above,if you think you wanna be portrayed as above,all you need to learn is Photoshop :)
Most of us,in Our childhood must have had toys.When we have one we try to know how it functions,by somehow opening it and once we know its working, we try to alter it to our own wish even though most of us fail!
A hacker has same mind set where he try to break through the security measures applied by the application or website makers.When we hear the name hacker first thing that comes to our mind is he will hack our facebook,twitter,computer and everything.Even though a very elite hacker may know to bypass the security of all these ,mostly they may not . What i mean is may be a hacker know to bypass security of webpages but not to crack games but still he is a hacker.
In simple words,Hacking is a mi…
