During the October 2023, I participated in the Huntress Capture the Flag contest. It started with couple of warmups challenges on the first day. Then they published two or one challenge every day. There were various categories, such as Warmups, Malware, Forensics, OSINT, Miscellaneous and Steganography. The difficulty levels differs from easy (usually very easy), medium (usually easy, but educative for new players) and hard (usually medium). Couple of “lolz” challenges have an extreme difficulty, and they were some kind of…what?
Few weeks ago I prepared the technical background of the CTF (Capture the Flag) for QuBit Conference Sofia 2019. It was intedned as a contest in which the three most successful participants will get the opportunity to attend QuBit Conference Sofia 2019. The content itself consisted of 10 challenges divided in 5 categories. In this post will be sumarized the thoughts, ideas and hints about the intended ways how to solve particular challenges.
