What the heck is the SU password?
OliverMcLoughli (1)

I think I found something.
Digging around and going to use curl, it failed with an auth failure. I assume this is basically a root access area, but I'm not sure.
The only issue? I don't know the password!
What would it be? It's NOT my account password I tried that already.

@Coder100 If I could figure this out I may be able to just cut out my posts about root access. Because gosh darn it I really want to do this.

lol it would be easy to exploit tho @OliverMcLoughli

@Coder100 1. Nope. Not password.
2. I dont care. I want to know how the heck do you get root access, and this looks like it MAY work for my idea.

@Coder100 Password is not password, I tried this with one of my C++ repls.

You don't get access to root in repl.it, that would be a huge security vulnerability even with repls being containerized.
If they wanted to let you have root they would have just removed the password.

@CSharpIsGud Augh. That sucks.
I really wanted to install the pterodactyl panel on here but guess not...

Basically: Curl tried to run a su command and it failed with an auth failure. I tried to run it and it asked for a password to access. What's the password, goddammit?
