Talking to the Dead 1

Challenge:

We’ve obtained access to a server maintained by spookyboi. There are four flag files that we need you to read and submit (flag1.txt, flag2.txt, etc). Submit the contents of flag1.txt.

ssh hacktober@env.hacktober.io

Password: hacktober-Underdog-Truth-Glimpse

Solution:

After SSH’ing into the server I see that I’m logged in as luciafer, but I’m in the root directory instead of a typical home directory.

$ whoami
luciafer

$  pwd
/

I change to the configured home directory and begin looking for flag1.txt.

$ cd ~

$ find . -name "flag1.txt" 
./Documents/flag1.txt

$ cat ./Documents/flag1.txt 
flag{cb07e9d6086d50ee11c0d968f1e5c4bf1c89418c}
