(Debian GNU / Linux)
If a user only has access + x to a folder, he can still perform a cd and a browse in the folder, but can not use a lot of other commands to read the contents of the folder or files that it contains.
drwx – x – x (the owner can only run the rwx group)
Changing the permissions of the file is not an option in this scenario.
(pen test challenge in retirement)
With this limited access, would it be possible to exfiltrate a file or read its contents?
