Talking to the Dead 2

Challenge:

There’s a hidden flag that belongs to luciafer. Submit the contents of the hidden flag2.txt.

ssh hacktober@env.hacktober.io

Password: hacktober-Underdog-Truth-Glimpse

Solution:

After SSH’ing into the server with the provided credentials I search for all files owned by the user luciafer.

$ find / -xdev -user luciafer 2>/dev/null

/home/luciafer
/home/luciafer/Videos
/home/luciafer/Pictures
/home/luciafer/Downloads
/home/luciafer/Documents
/home/luciafer/Documents/.flag2.txt
/home/luciafer/Documents/flag1.txt
/home/luciafer/.bash_logout
/home/luciafer/.profile
/home/luciafer/.bashrc
/home/luciafer/.bash_history

The second flag is simply a hidden file in the user’s home directory, under the Documents directory

$ cat ~/Documents/.flag2.txt 

flag{728ec98bfaa302b2dfc2f716d3de7869f3eadcbf}
