Hack The Box Protected Write-Ups

How to read the protected write-ups?

To unlock a post you need either the root hash (Linux) or Administrator hash (Windows) of the respective machine or the flag of an active challenge. Since March 2020 the root flags change after a reset of a box. It is therefore no longer possible to read the boxes that are rooted after March 2020 with the root flag.

I have protected my write-ups with the hash of the Administrator-account from a Windows-machine and with the full or part root hash of a Linux machine.

If you have saved the hash, you know the passwords of the posts if you compare the hash with the table below. Note: The quantity of *** does not mean the length of the hash.
