Good morning everyone.
I was surprised to see a new development being made regarding how the ROOT flag is generated. I was informed by a user in an unofficial HTB discussion thread in the Discord that from next machine onwards each ROOT flag will be different for every user, I mean the flags are dynamic from user to user.
Well, this is a good development if you see from the point of view of HTB and its affiliates, however this will definitely make their life harder for the one who just buy flags from different sources just for the sake of the “HTB RANK”.
As a blogger this will as well make my life harder because I cannot publish my write-ups protected with the root flag.
I as well see this new change will let flag sellers make more money by changing their business by becoming a “Write-ups” seller.
