We could see the disallow entries so umbraco is the cms so i thought it will be the foothold to enter the server

Lets enumerate further in the blogs to get usernames and flags because we dint find any exploit that is working on umbraco

Found a first flag inside first page source

Second flag found with a user exist as janedoe and found a email as ( thats a short form of janedoe )

We found a password UmbracoIsTheBest! as password in robot.txt but that didn't work for that jane doe email.

Further enumerated the blog

I copied the poem and pasted in google search i got repeated name solomon grundy. So that was a two name SG so thought of using for the password found in the robots.txt

Lets try the same creds for the remote desktop


After all enumeration i found some hidden directories in the Local disk C
