Task 1 — Ping Sweep

We need to use ping tool for this.

Our goal is to ping to each machine in the given network and then list the machine that are up. We may not get ping response even if the machine is up if ping/icmp packets are filtered (blocked/do not give response).

Goal :

To find the 5 flags. These flags are hints for further steps. The location of these flags are just an indicator where a good penetration tester should look. An alternative approach could also be to directly get to root.
