tcp connection hijacker, rust rewrite of shijack from 2001.

This was written for TAMUctf 2018, brick house 100. The target was a telnet server that was protected by 2FA. Since the challenge wasn't authenticated, there have been multiple solutions for this. Our solution (cyclopropenylidene) was waiting until the authentication was done, then inject a tcp packet into the telnet connection:

echo 'cat ~/.ctf_flag' | sudo rshijack tap0

After some attempts this command was accepted and executed by the telnet server, resulting in a tcp packet containing the flag.


The way this works is by sniffing for a packet of a specific connection, then read the SEQ and ACK fields. Using that information, it's possible to send a packet on a raw socket that is accepted by the remote server as valid.

The other tools in that screenshot are sniffglue and arpspoof.
