FLARE-ON Challenge – Part 3

Keep up the good work, and good luck!

Switchy – OpenToAll CTF 2015

This is the write-up of the second reverse engineering challenge from the OpenToAll(OTA) team CTF in 2015, worth 150 points. Although I did not manage to play the CTF, I had a brief look and thought I’d give this a go.

For those of you who want to get started playing CTFs, are curious to see what a CTF is, or do not have a team to play with, then I highly recommend joining OTA. I started playing CTFs with them and met some really cool people and learnt some tricks. You can find them under /r/opentoallctfteam or in #opentoall on Freenode IRC.
