CSAW CTF 2012: Exploitation 1

0 Comments | This entry was posted on Oct 04 2012

Here the challenge was

nc 128.238.66.218 54321

Read the key out of ./key in the current working directory

Also we were given a binary called exploitation-release

Given the challenge, instead of doing reversing the binary, we blindly tried a buffer overflow by entering a lot of  ’a', and that worked! It immediately gave out the key.
