I recently had a friend lose access to his Night Owl WNVR201 device. He said he lost his password, and I said I'd see what I could do. Through a long day of reverse engineering it, I found out how to reset the password on the device.
Because I always love to push the envelope, and love learning how different services work in the background, I find myself running into undocumented APIs fairly regularly. Through writing many random bots, I've come up with a pretty nice workflow for handling, and documenting these APIs.
This article is going to cover how I typically go about the endeavor of documenting unknown APIs.
In my last post, I walked us through connecting to OverTheWire's Bandit server, and completing level 0 and level 1. Following along with the previous article is a prerequisite to following this article, as you'll need to get the password from the file in level 1 first.
You can view my last post about this by following this link.
What is OverTheWire?
OverTheWire is a website with two games. One is "Wargames", which is a level based game, the other game is "Warzone", which is more of a free-for-all hacking game.
In this series of articles, I'm going to give a walkthrough of how to complete the "Bandit" series of levels on their website.
