Challenge Intel - Osint - Discussion

edited December 2020 in Challenges

Much thanks to @felamos for this amazing challenge :smile:
I really enjoyed it and the challenge has no dark spots like other osint challenges

Once you will find out how to do it, you will exclaim "Aaaah! Wow, there it is!" :wink:

  • I get a "Website is no longer available message" when I click on a site I found as part of the search. Does anyone else get that? I can't figure out if it's part of the challenge or something's broken.

    Where would you look at if the website is no longer available? :smile:

    Please ignore this comment. Thank Matgro for great hint

  • Does this challenge involve some RE?

  • I'm intrigued - this seemed to be a very short-lived challenge with hardly solvers and it's the only OSINT challenge I haven't done yet so would like to crack it for completion sake. I seem to have got as far as others in this thread and am stuck about the same place as @emilyj27 - - I've got to the 'other' website with (the hex-like user) and found some files there but stuck at that point.
    Any hints?

    Reverse Engineer? Nope, it's OSINT :smile:

    @JennyCide
    I don't want to give too much information here in public and spoiler things for other ppl, so feel free to PM if you are stuck.

    Anyway I can say that anything you have found say pretty clear what it isn't. But what if it is what it says it isn't? :wink:

  • Thanks @Matgro - I DM'd @felamos who gave a me a similar hint before I saw your response but your help is very much appreciated - I'd already found "what it isn't" but that had scared me a little - it took me a couple of seconds after getting the hint to slap my forehead and work out what the 'total' answer would be and get the flag.
    Really liked this challenge.

  • I get an hex-like name and some file... I think I'm stuck on the point were something is what it says it isn't. Please help, I don't get the hint....

  • struggling after finding something called normal, then told that it is not something else.... any help would be appreciated.

  • Thanks for the challenge @felamos . It will be a pleasure to ask if you need any help.

  • Srsly, I feel completely lost right now. I am at the same point as other users and I just can't figure it out what to do

    I was stuck on this part forever. you have everything you need to solve the challenge. it was a definite facepalm moment once I realized what I was missing.

    Feel free to DM me if you need a nudge in the right direction.
