These are very good starting points



  • searchsploit windows/local, searchsploit win_x86/local (can slim down results: searchsploit Microsoft Windows VERSION local, etc.

  • Fuzzy Security guide


  • www.google.com

  • Learning how to use the operating system(s) in question.

  • i have solve a lot of.. CTF machines.. but i want to have a list of privilege escalation.. and.. why in searchsploit u add local ? – Inj3ct0r Aug 28 '17 at 17:06
  • I'm adding local because you seem like you just want to practice privilege escalation, right? And you already have shell access, correct? So 99.9% of those are "local" exploits. It may be a local buffer overflow, escalation, race condition, whatever. If you already have a shell, and need to escalate, then all will be categorized under local. – Mark Buffalo Aug 28 '17 at 17:08
  • yep true.. i have read books about penetration testing.. ethical haking but noone explain privilege escalation.. say very basic things.. UAC bypass etc.. do you have something for windows / linux enumeration ? – Inj3ct0r Aug 28 '17 at 17:11
  • If you understand the purpose of all the commands in the two guides I linked, you will have very little trouble with privilege escalation, provided the machine is exploitable. All of the information I provided is all you need to really get started. It's up to you to put in the effort. – Mark Buffalo Aug 28 '17 at 17:12
  • Good Thank You and something else.. do you know good CTF based on privilege escalation.. i need to practise on this.. i download systems from vulnhub but this systems have very basic exploitation.. (not all) – Inj3ct0r Aug 28 '17 at 17:15
