TamilCTF: Ransomware

Fun CTF for TamilSec Con 2021 which wasn’t taking itself too seriously. This was the group’s first year and it was clear they had a lot of fun trying to come up with creative new challenges. I solved quite a few and this was one that got me stuck the longest. It was a memory forensics challenge. Here’s how I solved it which does not have an intended ending…

DownunderCTF 2021: Lost n Found

DownunderCTF has become a big event in the yearly CTF calendar. Nice job all involved! It’s also one of the only CTFs that is run in a cloud region geographically near me. Loved the super fast ping times to all the infrastructure. What a luxury!

SunshineCTF 2021: ProcrastinatorProgrammer

A fun CTF with some good story telling in the Reverse Engineering category. This challenge was a fun quick 150 points because I’d had a bit of practice with the domain recently!

H@cktivityCon 2021: Sausage Links

I think what makes a addictive CTF for me is when there are great challenges, lots of them, and the difficulty ramp up exists. This CTF had all of that and more. Warmups that were actually good warmups and tricky challenges that seemed impossible at first but were able to be reasoned through. This was a combo RSA challenge so it’s one of my personal favourites. Solution follows…


Didn’t realise this CTF was on until the last few hours but here’s one challenge I got done. Snab?
