I think this is my 4th day now tryna solve this now, and I've spent a very unhealthy amount of time on this. With a lot of nudges I was able to get a reverse shell and find the flags. Now I'm working on decrypting them, and a lot of different people told to do it with different methods and none of them seemed to work for me. I dunno if I am allowed to specify what those methods were cause of spoilers of an active box, so I won't. Any help will be very much appreciated, you can pm me
Always do whatever is next.
