From time to time we need to make a large amount of CNAME changes as part of a larger process, we have to wait until all changes have propagated before continuing the process so I wrote this simple script that takes a list of device names and visually displays them and the IP they're currently resolving to and continuously updates the list on the terminal so we can see when they're all done.
I'm currently using VirtualBox for any VM needs for testing various OSs, software or security. For the most part I don't need to leave the VMs running all the time so I thought it would be handy to have a cli menu for starting/ stopping/ rebooting any VMs. The
vboxmanage command offers a ton of control so I'm just using a few key commands from that.
I did the eJPT a while back and hadn't really looked at any practical security content since then, so though I'd spin up a VulnHub VM. I'm just going to outline the broad steps I took to completion as this is more a note taking entry. I will list at the end any major rabbit holes I went down.
This VM has three keys to find and is listed as beginner-intermediate. Mr Robot on VulnHub
