Window Pains 2


Using the memory dump file from Window Pains, submit the victim's computer name.

Submit the flag as flag{COMPUTER-NAME}.


Using Volatility 3 we can retrieve the computer name from the ComputerName registry key located in the SYSTEM registry hive. First we need to determine the memory offset for the hive:

$ ~/Tools/volatility3/ -f physmemraw windows.registry.hivelist.HiveList | grep SYSTEM
0xab09bee55000.0&$\REGISTRY\MACHINE\SYSTEM	Disabled

With the correct offset value we can retrieve the ComputerName key from the hive:

$ ~/Tools/volatility3/ -f physmemraw windows.registry.printkey.PrintKey --offset 0xab09bee55000 --key 'ControlSet001\Control\ComputerName\ComputerName'
Last Write Time	Hive Offset	Type	Key	Name	Data	Volatile

The accepted flag was, flag{DESKTOP-IT8QNRI}
