Bandit Level 7 Solution

Bandit level 7 is an easy level that teaches you on how to search for specific words within files

Let’s start by logging into bandit level 7 machine

ssh -p 2220

with the password that we got from our previous level.


let’s list all the files that in our home directory

So The password is inside data.txt file, let’s try to read the file with cat command.

cat data.txt

So the file contains a lot of lines that we can’t go through manually, so we need to use a command that allows us to search for specific text , and that command will be “grep”.

So now, let’s try to read the file along with piping the data to grep command

cat data.txt | grep millionth

and like this we get the password for the level 8
