HackTheBox - Love

Love is a fun box where we find a hidden subdomain that helps us retrieve Forbidden pages, where admin credentials are leaked of another service. The access to the admin dashboard has a file upload, through which we get a reverse shell. The box then has AlwaysInstallElevated that allows a regular user to install a Microsoft Windows Installer Package (MSI) with system privileges, which helps us get the Administrator access.
