No shame on take hints, I can tell you how I usually think when I'm stuck:
if you think the topic covered in the challenge is not of your interest, well then don't waste your time, move on.
The purpose here is not to actually capture the flag.

it shows some interesting function names, one of them is the standard provided by Apple in order to help with encryption stuffs.
The default mode is CBC, but some little further research re…
you're in the right path.
Once you understand how the script works, you have to feed him some data.
Look at the pcap and follow the flow.
Finally you have to force the last step, simple and well known list is enough as usual.
No hint needed here, the chall description is enough in order to understand what you have to do.
There are at least three ways of approaching that:
The worst (mine): automatize all the manual tasks by some scraping. (functional but not recommended)…

resources to read has been already mentioned here, my post was also related to the real world case.
Even if you don't know js well, you can always try some debug, the script is obfuscated but it doe…

Wait wait, I never said 'thank you for the solution'
All the hints are public posted here and if somebody tell something more it'll be censored.
In my opinion some previous posts are more usefull and comp…
it was one of the most interesting challenges I have done recently.
I have to say thank you to @opt1kz for the best hint.
Some people rated this as simple, and it really is when you find the technique, but honestly I didn't feel like to rated it l…
The reason why somebody managed to solve it by using Py3 is because the 'illusion' has just a little bit changed since Py3.2+
It remain a funny code exercise..
There're some different way to do that.
I enjoyed it, thank you
Thank you, now I know that If the Queen places her handbag on the table at dinner, it is a sign she wishes the event to end in the next five minutes.
ps. in order to solve don't follow my comment, you risk getting stuck in a rabbit hole ;)
this chall is a pain in the a**! It seems someone keeps breaking it by testing postgress vulnerabilities.. There'r some samples that allow anyone to send the machine to hibernation for an indefinite time .. so every time you have to wait for the lab…
easy and funny..
Solved with a couple of row in py.
Curious about who managed this only by online tools..I didnt found what I needed.
hint: chall description is enough, dont waste your time trying to decode somthing that cannot be decoded.. Change…
Honestly I don't understand how lot of people rated easy this.
True that you need few secs to found the flag..
But I expected some forensic stuffs here and honestly without the hints here I think I would have wasted a lot of time.
Thanks guys.. Add…
ok, I was stuck looking for standard flag pattern..
I thought the current flag was yet another puzzle to be solved...
Only 30 minutes to figured out..
My hint: no alcohol when you play challenges :(
All that you need is already explained above ;)
honestly at the beginning I thought it would be really easy .. After losing some unexpected hours trying to understand the right pattern I have to admit that it was an interesting and fun challenge.
Instead I envy those who can do it without coding…
Nice and funny chall.
I think I was a little lucky here since I solved every step in a very straight way.
Could you someone DM me in order to explain the 'magic'?
Actually there was a little not standard clue, I don't want to miss the 'lesson learn…
It was funny... The hardest part for me has been the first stage.. i am really incapable with these tools. It took me 20 minutes to find the right combination by running random settings.
I see but I don't see...

It's a fake flag.
Also pay attention to which profile you choose, even here they had fun creating some fake clues.
Finally I found the flag in other place, not in TA, even if it should be the rig…
Thanks to quantumtheory that confirmed me that I was in the right place.
Thanks to hangTuah that lead me in an other place where I finally found the flag.
At this point I think that there are multiple flags or maybe the challenge is definitivly cha…
Am I the only one who prefers the rabbit holes? ;)
Putting the pieces together I had a theory that I was following. unfortunately it was not the real way :(. it would have been much more compelling...
The only hint here is 'search and look for eve…
it was funny and "easy" in the right manner ...
My hint is: do not complicate your life, go straight by the way and remember this is a OSINT chall. All the info that you need are there, you have only to read and dig for every new clear clu…
