Step 6. After going through the JS Files, There are some functions available in inviteapi.min.js file. Out of all the functions, two of them seem interesting. But we just need only one. So, let’s run ‘makeInviteCode’ function. So, let’s try calling those functions.
Step 7. Let’s move to console tab and run “makeInviteCode()” function. We got a 200 success code, which means it’s aliveJ.
Step 8. Let’s open the object our makeInviteCode() function returned. we can see the data in the object file. It also says it’s encrypted in “BASE64”.
Step 9. So, let’s quickly move to some online Base64 Decoders and decode the data. It says “In order to generate the invite code, make a POST request to /api/invite/generate”
Step 10. So, we need to make a post request to https://www.hackthebox.eu/api/invite/generate there are hell lot of ways to send a post request. Let’s go with the easier process using “POSTMAN” chrome browser widget or a windows application.
Step 11. Download and open the POSTMAN chrome extension or a widows native application. Then select “POST” and enter the address to where we need to generate a POST Request and click on “SEND”
Step 12. You can see the output of the post request below. As you can see its encoded again. When you see a single “=” or ‘==” its most likely “BASE64” Encoded.
Step 13. Copy the code from the postman output and again move to Online Base64 Decoder and decrypt it. That’s it. Now copy the decoded code and paste it into https://www.hackthebox.eu/invite and click “Sign Up”
