First time in the website, we don’t see anything special aside from a textbox and some images. side note: there is an open text box, but you won’t get very far by trying web-related vulnerabilities ;) After viewing the page source we see that the file is really long, after scrolling to the bottom we see the first hint!

Challenge by -

Writeup for Rap(h)ic; Reversing 966 Intro This is a hard Reversing challenge from noxCTF. The solver only gets an ELF file. Description: There is nothing like overly designed design The original file is attached at the bottom of the document. Summary We get an ELF file. Upon execution, it will load another ELF file from its memory into “/tmp/…” and execute it. The processes use a socket to communicate with each other - The parent process sends addresses which the child process later executes and sends its return value back to the parent. [Read More]

Challenge description: Muhammad Ali: “I’ve Ceen Many Pictures of Knocking-out in my career” special idea: 1)The main idea of the challenge is ICMP Knocking. 2)This is not a Stego challenge, this is a Networking challenge! 3)solving without understanding(frame contains “flag”/“noxctf”,follow each tcp stream) will lead you to stego dead end. Writeup: At the beginning of the challenge we get a description: Muhammad Ali: “I’ve Ceen Many Pictures of Knocking-out in my career” ok, it seems like we need to search picture files of knockouts inside the pcap file.

Note: this is not a Reverse challenge Note: change the flag format from noxctf{X-X-X} to noxCTF{X_X_X} Writeup At the beginning of the challenge we get an executable file, that looks like cmd. Lets start running commands and look if we see something suspicious But so far it seems like normal limited cmd. When we call the ‘netstat’ command we get a constant output: Netstat- Displays protocol statistics and current TCP/IP network connections. [Read More]

Writeup: So, at the beginning of the challenge we get a note: ‚ÄúSUBliminal is an Israeli rapper that eschew from Illegal things. [Read More]

[noxCTF] Sublime

Challenge by G4S

Sublime is a medium difficulty cryptography challenge about the substitution cipher. I made this challenge more difficult by setting the substitution range of values to the whole ASCII table. To solve this challenge, you first need to perform a frequency analysis on the given ciphertext, omitting the variety of punctuation marks from the analysis but spaces (e.g. dots, exclamation marks, question marks etc..) and sort the frequencies from the highest to the lowest.
