Well I have unzipped the file got what is inside there.
I have what I should I do after all...
Tried to convert what I got to text but it doesn't give me flag or anything related..
Nudge please =]

    ... i am like u ...

  • Reread the description, it will provide you with a starting location. ;) DM if you are still punching your face with a keyboard.

  • What was in the zip-file? Look at the directory structure and the contents.

  • Never mind I owned it :D
    Hint: You need to stop punching your face with the keyboard and focus on what you have in front on your eyes ;)

  • Very interesting challenge. Can be resolved with a single line command.

    Randsec

  • I feel like I am not making a very obvious connection here... I'm looking at the structure, I've tried removing empty directories... Don't know where to go from here. Anyone looking to give a nudge?

  • Is the flag not working for anyone else? I believe I solved the challenge, and produced what seems like the correct flag, but it isn't accepted for some reason. PMs welcome.

    Same here, I'm pretty sure it's the way to do it but the flag is not right. Any hint?
    PM me, please

  • Asc II? Some tips?

  • Had the correct approach... had a copy/paste error that mangled the flag. Thanks to those who helped.

  • after some scripts in python I was able to solve it.
    hint: Think about the word misDIRECTION ;)

    Hack The Box

  • Im literally lost and punching my face on the keyboard. I have no idea how to proceed after i unzipped the files.

  • think why some folders are empty, why some have files.
    then think about the file names and what you can do with !

  • The size of key is the same with number of files ?

  • @thek said:

    No, but it is related

  • I've unzipped the zip but I can't access any of the files in the directory...or the directory itself

  • it's an hidden folder

  • Alright, so I've done what I think I should have, and am now left with a nice string of letters and numbers. My first thought was to decrypt it, so I "thought about the word Direction", and tried decrypting it using route, transposition, etc... However, everything still spits out just a jumbled ciphertext. Any help?

  • what a fun challenge. easy in the end if you don't make it harder than it is. write down what you see and connect the dots keeping the direction in mind

    Dltd

  • After reading these and scrolling through the directories, I still have nothing but a random string which seems to be a ciphertext. A nudge would be appreciated! Feel free to PM if you are able to help! :D

  • Nevermind I got it :D

  • Well, I got the information, but still not getting the right flag. I might be missing that part about "keeping the direction in mind". Any help would be appreciated.

  • I've done as far as I can on this at the moment, trying out many different approaches but yielding nothing at all useful. If anyone is willing to give me a nudge I'd appreciate a PM. Really good challenge.

  • Got it after a couple of tries. The DIRection is the big clue for those still having trouble. Could have more than one meaning :smiley:

  • 1 to 37 file. i got it. anyone can tell me how to find that encoded string decoding method?

    ArmaTank

  • ooo yes i got it

  • Is the flag in the normal format? Do I need to decode it?

    No need to decode. but you will need to add the HTB{} to it. IIRC

    As far as I remember, flag for this challenge has HTB{} already

  • Nope. It definitely needs decoding.
