Bucket,a Linux box created by HackTheBox user MrR3boot, was an overall medium difficulty box. Initial foothold was finding credentials in dynamo-db and using that to use that credentials on aws s3 cli. and then we upload a php shell and we get a shell as www-data and using another credential. we get roy(user). for Privilege Escalation we find another internal service running on 8000 and checking the code we see it is using pd4ml to convert an html to pdf. so we can inject and attach some files and download the result.pdf, using that we can download root.id_rsa with that we can ssh and we have pwned the box.

Checking the source we find another subdomain s3.bucket.htb
Lets add that to the /etc/hosts and view the page again.
running gobuster we find /shell on s3.bucket.htb
/health (Status: 200) /shell (Status: 200)
following the tutorial and trying few things we can dump a users table which had some creds.
So with those creds i used cloudadm creds with aws cli to ls file and we see we can upload too.
After updating the index.html we see that updating after few seconds on the main bucket.htb
So i wrote a script to upload a php shell and keep polling on bucket.htb to get a reverse shell
