    Totally agreed. And remember, it's just a file that can be read, wrote and ...

    yeah!) gedit and linux, for example)

  • Man, this is one of the easiest challenges I ever had in HTB. No tools needed, just use the computer alternative of the writing pad ;)

  • Hi, I'm new in Linux and I don't know many of features and tools that it offers. Can you give me a hint how to solve this challenge please?

  • I would take the time to understand RE a bit and play with the tools available before diving in too hard.

    I've Just checked the archive. Everything is fine

  • I never did reversing but have some experience programming in C so it took me a bit long, about 10-15 minutes to solve this challenge.

    I opened the file with v** and found a key and the flag as well but because of encoding it wasn't usable.

    Chef told me what file type it was, used the key and challenge solved.

    Tried h** **p as well with Chef but the flag wasn't usable that way. Did some research on Big Brother and learned how to use r which I'll be using in the next challenges as well.


    Please + Respect me if I helped you out.

    I have an error too :
    skipping: baby unsupported compression method 99

    Is it part of the challenge ? Because on windows I found the key and what seems to be the flag. But on linux there is this problem.
    anyone ?

    ... used to file the bars of your cell and escape in search of the legendary Monkey Island?
  • Thanks for hint @IvanGlinkin and the others :-)

  • Spoiler Removed

  • it was my first revers engineering task and it was fun!

    It took me longer to unzip the file than solve the challenge. If you are having trouble unzipping this on a linux box, try using 7zip to unpack it.

  • I can see the flag with my "tool" but some parts are missing/unreadable... Is it just a matter of tool settings ?

  • ok, flag found :-)

  • Going into this never RE anything before. Overall super simple and fun challenge. If anyone needs help you can PM me.

    Nudge: Download Ghidra and look up some walkthroughs for other CTFs using it to get familiar with the tool. Also very slight programming experience will help ( By slight I only mean conditional statements)

    The challenge mentions 4 ways to solve. I've found 3 (abbreviated so as not to give it all away):

    1. strings, then run
    2. r2
    3. strings | tr | grep

    Anybody have any different methods?

    EDIT: If these method descriptions are too specific, let me know- I'm new to htb but it seems like this level of description is not too much of a spoiler.

  • *facepalm* I thought extracting the archive WAS the challenge :tongue:
