Bonus Challenges

Blue's boss has hired you to see if the cluster is completely "clean". Use the next block of time to solve the following bonus challenges. Once you know both answers, approach one of the co-presenters and whisper the answers to both questions to earn the prestigious "expert" badge.

Challenge 1

  • Get a root shell on the cluster node again. Find out the image name that was last run directly with docker commands by the kubernetes user.

Challenge 2

  • Was this cluster compromised via another mechanism and Blue didn't know about it? (Yes!) Find the IP address of the attacker's system where the reverse shell was being sent. Hint: Tiller was removed with helm reset --force and so it left some things behind in the kube-system namespace.
