  • I can't even get it to print anything out. Can anyone help me figure out where to put the breakpoints? thx
  • Solved Fun challenge. Having read through these forum pages, I was able to get it within a short amount of time. Yet I don't understand what's up with the trap I fell into at the very end. And that was what actually cost me the most time.

  • This is good advice! w00t
  • I don't know if anyone has figured it out and wants to give a nudge, but I stuck on this challenge because I cannot get the program to segfault. It does not seem to care how large a pattern I use. Strange..

  • *got it. Kind of sadistic for only 20 points lol.
  • I managed to get some binary strings, but nothing that converts to anything that makes sense. I don't even know if i'm on the right track. A nudge would be appreciated.
  • I've tried both of mendedsiren63's above hints, and I'm still stucked with those characters like 'Y' 'd' '8' 'b'.

  • @fabreeze said: For some reason I was able to extract the file with a different password which would corrupt the image... interesting This. Is why it's not wise to just throw rockyou at everything. Well, one of the reasons.
  • OK nvm my previous comment. I clicked on the archive again this morning, and somehow the jpeg just popped up. I still don't know exactly how they did that, though.

  • I'm completely confused by this challenge. I'm having the same problem Maco had earlier in this thread--I only get an empty folder when I extract the archive. I tried it in 2 different Linux distros and Windows 10 VM, same result. And the sha hash s…

  • Oops so I spoke too soon. Turns out that two of the digits I only got because of guessing correctly.
  • I finally solved this challenge. It just wasn't quite as straightforward as I expected from reading this thread. Feel free to DM for hints.
  • I'm afraid I've been wasting my time on this challenge, so I'd appreciate some advice: how do you know if it's unpacked correctly? If it runs in the debugger, and it shows the ASCII strings that print out, etc., is it correct?
  • Hi. Thanks for the reply. It's working now. Sometimes I just get easily frustrated, being a newb and all.
  • Instead of typing in the host name (, you should type in the IP address. You can get it by DNS lookup. This normally works for me. (However this evening I stopped being able to access Lernaean)
  • OK wow that was strange. I got the flag, though I'm not completely sure how what I did worked.
  • OK nvm my first post. I get it now. I got to the second part but due to above hints will try to jump.
  • I don't understand the stages people are talking about. I only understand that it should be debugged, but is possible to solve from disassembly alone. I am trying radare2 and gdb, When I try to debug, it seems strange because no matter where I try t…
  • ::FACEPALM:: Nevermind. Got it.
