Challenge: Kryptic Ransomware

  • This challenge has so many rabbit holes, i can't even begin to count them. And i think i fell for them all. Since you have to enter coordinates, you'll find them literally everywhere. As a hint for the ones lost:
    The zoom level on google maps is not important when solving the challenge.

    Shout out to CyberSecNV, who pulled me out of quite a few pits.

    Countably

    I am always happy to help, but please put some effort into your questions. I won't reply to "I am stuck on machine XXX" messages.

  • I found some cords and getting the "Sattelite is repositioning..." alert. Looking at the source, it's a catch-all error to the decryption. Can I DM someone with my findings to confirm I'm on the right path and it's not something on my machine.

  • Can someone PM to verify if I'm going on the right path?

  • I'd appreciate some guidance on this, if someone can spare the time - having read a social media feed, I've found 2 locations for an event (in the same city); one co-ord gives me "None found", the other gives me "Repositioning".

    I thought I was on the right track, and started fiddling around with the JS, before remembering this is an OSINT challenge not a "mucking about with code" challenge. Am I on the threshold of a deep rabbit hole?

  • Hi guys! I'm quite stuck on this one. I did the logical first step which gave me the protonmail. After trying to find additional info on the leader (which everyone seems to have found), I haven't been able to find anything at all.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! DM me if possible

  • I think there are enough tips on the forum to solve this challenge. The only thing that kept me banging my head against the wall over and over was a tiny silly thing: sometimes, some search engines are case sensitive .... XD

  • Can anyone confirm if this is still working? I followed the lead and spoke to the bird. Found a link but coming up 'blank'?? Am I in the right place?

  • Can someone ping me about this challenge and let me know if I am on the right track? I feel like I'm going crazy.

    I feel myself a crazy... what's mean ask to bird?

  • I found f**m.com site the was text from index.html file.
    I found address by whois and try found coords by IP.
    If I use geolocation I get different address, if I use google I get location but it changes if I change scale than location change too.
    When I check found location on index.html I get Satellite is repositioning or None was found at that location.
    Was it rabbit hole from my first step?

  • Hi all, thanks for trying my challenge. The challenge was broken for a short period of time, so if you couldn't solve it maybe you should try again. Thanks!

    stuck on this challenge; found the t*****r and the f****r but not sure if L***ess f*****in is a red herring or if its actually Cy****s

    anyone give some help? : //

  • solved :) overlooked a very simple thing and over thought the solution. actually a very easy challenge if you take the paths of least resistance. listen to the bird and the cat, pay attention to handles, make sure you download the right files : D

  • many rabbit holes as others said. if got "Sattelite is repositioning", maybe you need look at another path. DM me if you a nudge.

    Hi there. Found the e-mail but can't get to the coords. The event coords are no good and I've found dozens of pics by the handle but have no idea about the cat. Can anyone give me a hint?
