In this challenge, you will log in using the provided username and password and then connect to a MySQL database as the root user without a password. Once logged in, you will navigate the database using basic SQL commands such as `show databases;`, `use [DATABASE];`, `show tables;`, and `select * from [TABLE];`. The objective is to explore the database and retrieve the password of the admin user.

The video provides a step-by-step guide on how to connect to the MySQL database, list the available databases, select a specific database, and view its tables. The goal is to extract valuable credentials that can be used for further penetration testing activities. This challenge helps you understand the importance of securing database credentials and how attackers might exploit weak configurations.
