Shrek

Hi all! I was able to find some interesting text files and extract a single name from one of them. I am trying to determine how to crack a related encrypted file. I can't think of a way to do this given the text files. Looking for a nudge in the form of a thing that I should research or a way to try harder. :-)

    The text file seems quite SPOILER, if you ask me...

    Hahaha you gave a good hint.

  • I've made a little bit of progress with this machine. But I'm kind stuck at the moment. Could someone point me a way, or to a smashing tool to use with a file that's on that machine. You'd be an absolute star...

    Respect earned. Nice one :+1:

  • Dear all, i am in the being of the shrek and still couldn't find any txt file or hint to go plz help me

  • Dear all, I am too with Shrek. I'm researching apache, I've seen directories interestings and I have to look at more. Dirb, Dirbuster or Burp can help me?

    Thank's

  • Don't try to find a text file, it's a hint for something that comes later. Just enumerate, look at the directories, look what's in them, read everything. If you're stick stuck, repeat.

    Now, can anyone give me a hint for privesc? I can jump in as certain someone else but don't see a way forward... Nothing seems to jump out as either the original user or this other user... I'm seriously stumped here.

    I am stuck here ,too. I got 31 .txt files and 1 key file. Can't figure out if the text files are just for distraction or if they are helpful to crack the key?

    Nevermind. I found something.

  • Hi all! I was able to get the text files and key file. I was able to get a name and some text that seems encoded, but I am unable to use this information to advance. Could you please give me a nudge on what to read or where to look for information on what I have to do next. Thank you :)

  • Hi guys, A little bit in the same situation as the people above, I found text files and a key, found two bits of information in the files (one making sense and the other less), I've tried many things but I'm completely stuck with this, any help greatly appreciated :)

    Hey, What you do with information in the file? One string look like garbage

  • I'm in the same place, just got 2 information from the txt files. One makes sense and other doesn't. I suspected that the text that makes sense was a key to decrypt the other text using XOR cipher. No luck on this. Any hint? thanks guys
