  • I just decoded the b******** code and got a text. But I can't use it to login anywhere. Any hint after this.?

  • any idea with what to do with the decode ...!? string

    Same here, can see some informations when trying to decode (seems to be filename) but cannot get something relevant.

    Any hints ?

    Magic numbers.

    just decoded the ..? stuff, any hint about decoding the second incomprehensible message ?

    Edit: got user, I don't really like boxes like this, not very realistic...anyway it would have been nice as a challenge

    I haven't even gotten a shell. Got several creds but can't seem to use them anywhere, including the color service. Could use some tips.

    I've got a pw... now where to use it :bleep_bloop:
    Edit: Got it!
    Any hints on privesc?

  • idk what to do now.hints please!

  • Seems like more than 20 pts to me.

  • User was quite interesting, even though it was more like solving different challenges. However, did not like the root part, glad there is not only one way of doing it.

  • After too many hours I've just got the first bit of that darn code. SERIOUSLY? Even with the hints here and almost having it right I still headed off on the wrong tangent for a whole evening, until I started reading in more depth what appeared to be the world's most pointless information website. If only I was a Librarian.

    In the unlikely event that I manage to be of help, feel free to give respect! I will try to help you help yourself, but I don't see any gain from simply giving away the answer.

  • finally got user after working on that ridiculous jibberish for way to long. I don't even feel good about it. I'm just happy its over.

  • yeah don't know why these many different decoders required. Any hint when it is going to end?

    @opt1kz Can you PM me? Or anyone who already solved that encoded string consisting of punctuation marks. I can't figure it out.
    EDIT: Got it.

  • have pass. Not sure where to use it. Hint?

  • Would anybody know if there is an alternate route to root aside from this crazy stack overflow method. i've not been able to find another path, and this way seems pretty bonkers! :astonished:

  • i find the password but i really dont know where use it someone can hint or pm me ? :)

  • ok I get that the code is some variant of b*******k but what's the deal with the ? that's not in the language?

    for those that are struggling with the .!? stuff... It's a shortend version of a particular esoteric language that is lesser known for the "?" symbol than another language is.

    i think the "?" is a deliberate decoy, over look it.

    hope that's not a spoiler, please redact if so

  • right got the !.? language sorted , now deciphering more nonsense

  • Decoded the first encryption looking for a way to decrypt second one...

  • great, I know have 3 passwords, but none of them work with the coloured service, unless I'm missing a username, any clues?

    i have decoded both the cyrptic strings and was able to covert that into a usable file which is protected by a password. i have 2 passwords in my hand and none of them work against the protected file. Can someone pass me hint on where i can find the password for it.
