The Future Bender - Stego

The first part of the challenge is a simple mind game, you have a picture of Bender showing what encryption is needed, and you have 3 obviously chosen letters, maybe you can convert them to achieve something. On the second part you have to take a deep breath and wonder what this "phrase" is supposed to mean; Don't limit yourselfs looking at decoding stuff Steganography most of the time refers to external resources, religions, books, and enigmas. Happy Hunting!

  • Lol, 24 hours left from release, only 6 person got the chall, all give the note insane, and it was a 30 pts challenge O_O, i stuck directly at the start, and what you said didnt help me so much... anyway will wait a moment for more hint, too many time spend on it for nothing :)

    PS : I don't judge the challenge or said it was a bad challenge, i said only 30pts, when all note it insane.... its just a joke xD, anyway i will wait to got it for said what i think about it :)

    I aggree with the point stuff because it doesn't require any knowloedge or learning stage. I wouldn't even do the first step if I didn't read the hint because it was complete nonsense. I don't think any of the files or parts of the challenge was giving directions about it , it was just a random guess(Please don't tell me this was there, this was there you had to think this, you had to think that blah blah blah...).

    For the second part, I literally tried every combination related to this "phrase" but still nothing. God knows what kind of random thing I had to guess in order to get the flag . I can't understand how these challenges even released ...

    AHAHAHAHAHA BY FAR THE MOST STUPID CHALLENGE EVER ....

  • I spent more time guessing the right combination of the answer to the riddle than i did doing steg extraction work.

    Quick and easy, though.

    Thanks Frey!

  • After spending some time on it when it first came out, I came back to it today an re-looked at it. 5 mins later, solved it. Thanks for the challenge!

  • Who thought this challenge was okay? I want my wasted time back!

    Plssssss this was the worst challenge of stego, maybe it would have helped to the flag format, I did not think it was right, I'm sorry, they should have more careful when choosing the clues.

  • what are we supposed to google, when all we have is 3 binary values? or i am getting this wrong?

    That's the second part, finish up the first one.

    Pls there is some hints for the googling part of the challenge? Im stuck on it, try different point of views related to the "phrase" and nothings seems to work.

    EDIT: well, with the post below i finally got this one. No comments xdddd

  • @Frey and @moderators: I think you should give the format of the flag HTB{format_of_the_flag} (i.e. only lowercase letters and underscore for space). I see no point in trying to guess the flag format for this challenge. Feel free to delete my comment if you think it's a spoiler. :)

    The spaces are already given out when you locate the flag, therefore the only thing is the lowercase thing which is quite obvious on HTB Stego section, cause we saw it and did it plenty of times on another challenges too.

  • Well, I had a look at the previous flags from stego challenges and there is a lot of variety (MiXed CaSe, snake_case, PascalCase, [email protected] e.tc.). Therefore, even if one has found the correct phrase, there are a lot of combinations to try.

  • since when you have to know previous challenge flag formats, to solve a challenge? quite a few challenges hint towards the flag format if i am not wrong

  • It was a good challenge Frey.
    The difficulty as brainf*ck is way off. I would say its somewhere in the middle.
    The thing that got me a little bit was with the flag lowers/uppers. But now Frey cleared that up.
    In case he was not clear: Flag is all lowercase.

  • Can't really quote you all up so i'll say it here.

    @alamot You just overthinked to much, when there was no need to obviously.

    @w31rd0 You don't, and i never said that you need to know previous challenge's that's why i said cause we saw it and did it plenty of times on another challenges too. it was a reference to guide you towards using lowercase,therefore you better start doing some actual CTF'S to train yourself up better rather than doing the easy ones on HTB, no hard feelings but yeah. I'll suggest you catching up the PicoCTF

    @Rayz Thanks for enjoying the short journey, if you have watched the show no wonder you found it easily, as about the flag yeah cleared that out on alamots comment.

  • Done.

    After reading the thread, I have to say I can't understand the hate...
    Maybe it should be in the Misc category, since it is not all stego.
    But other than that, guys... give @Frey a break

  • @Frey Have never watched the show..I just googled a lot about the binary code .

  • @GibParadox Ohboi, hope the other challenge gets released to :joy:

  • It is a challenge of intuition but it is difficult without seeing the comments of this thread :)

    At first I thought that the letters in the image was something basic and it did not matter, but after reading Frey's comment I managed to solve it

    An interesting challenge @Frey

  • Thanks @samsepi0l for the nudge! I think I aged a little googling about the binary code.
    Because there are 2 binary codes. Totalled by the challenge @Frey

  • Solved... but its the best stupid chall i never seen so far! i don't understand how a "guessing chall" like that is accepted by hack the box... but nvm, just a lost of time

    lol ... Best reply ever :)

  • Any more hints for this please? My brain starts to hurt now :D

  • I'm stuck and overthinking this challenge anyone can help. The comments don't help

  • @Frey The second part of this puzzle is quite time consuming. I've essentially been building my own wordlist from related terms so I can crack this puppy open. I'm up to 500 variations of words/phrases.

    Any chance you could narrow the focus either here or in PM?

    I can't really give out much, the thread already spoils almost all the steps on it. Never the less the last step requires some basic keywording searching imo. To narrow it down for you the first searching is your flag. How to mega spoil into your own challenge

  • @Frey I appreciate you taking the time. Like an idiot, I was overthinking it.
