Deadly Arthropod (forensics) - invalid flag?

Hello!

I found a flag, surrounded by HTB{ and } , including a readable message including punctuation. Am I missing something? It doesn't validate.

  • Same here, getting the HTB{s0m3_t3xt} format but the platform won't accept the flag. In my mind the only question is about capital letters but I have tried all the variations without any luck. Some hints on the correct format or where to pay attention would be highly appreciated.

  • @wolfpwn and @soepstengel97 - private message me and I will point you in the right direction.

  • hi guys, anyone give any pointer on this ?

  • @netkernel I don't want to post spoilers in the thread, private message me and I'll help you out :)

  • I got the flag too but false positive. Any nudges ?

  • WASD... what an invention... right?

  • I am stuck at different issue, but found people saying in another thread that copy-paste does not seems to work but manually typing does

    Hope this helps.

  • Ok got it working, had a logic bug in my script.

    Happy to help if anyone need.

  • I have found the wrong flag and have an idea about wrong in script, any nudges in the right direction ? can anyone PM ?

  • @HappyFrog I'll DM you - and anyone else needing help reading this thread, you can DM me for hints.

  • After I read several USB CTF I found a flag with wrong validation. Stucked on it.

    Amen. I prefer controllers&joysticks personally. Keyboards remind me I'm at a computer, joypads help me to forget that fact.

  • Stucked on it. I found a clear flag HTB{xxxxx} with a "hacking text" but no validation on challenge... Help needed.

  • Beware, this challenge is quite tricky. If you have a (quite common) bug in your solution, then you will get something that looks like a valid flag, but is actually a little bit off from the correct flag.

    Double and triple-check your solution for logic bugs, and you'll discover the right flag.

    So weird.... flag tells me a right message with some sense

  • Yes, it stumped me for a long time too. I'm almost sure I can guess what value of almost-the-flag you have.

    As I said, it's very close to the correct flag, but a few characters off. Think about what the input data represents, and how the state of the process would affect the output.

    If that's too vague, PM me.

  • I am having some difficulty. I got an email and password but no flag. There are 2 "numbers" I cant make sense of. Could someone PM me for help?

  • I am so close, but I am having trouble putting the final piece together. Can someone PM me?

    Hello all. I'm in the same boat. What are we doing wrong or missing?

    you are probably missing something... flags are case sensitive to start with
