At Hurricane Labs, we like to participate in Capture the Flag (CTF) events from time to time. Last month, we participated in a few events including the NahamCon, Hack-a-Sat, and Defenit CTFs. The variety of challenges across these events was diverse, giving our team a lot of interesting tasks to chew on and lose sleep over.
Having recovered from the excitement, satisfaction, and frustration that comes with any good CTF, now is a good time to discuss some of the challenges we encountered and our approaches to solving them. In this three-part series, we’re going to cover three different scripting challenges from the NahamCon CTF. So, without further ado, let’s open a text editor and put on our coding caps.
It’s time for some educational programming! We’ll first look at a 100-point scripting challenge: Big Bird. The challenge description directs us to a Twitter profile owned and operated by Big Bird:
Big Bird is communicating with us in a whole new way! But… how?
