Bandit is a wargame hosted on OverTheWire. It is a series of levels that teach you the basics of Linux and security. This post is a writeup of the levels I have completed.

Level 0

Level 0 is just logging into the wargame server using SSH. The credentials are given to you on the level page.

  • Host:
  • Port: 2220
  • Username: bandit0
  • Password: bandit0

The password for the next level can be found by reading the readme file in the home directory.

bandit0@bandit:~$ cat readme
