# Verbose


My friend sent me this file, but I don't understand what I can do with these 6 different characters...


(File(s): attachments/verbose.txt)

We're given a file that's in some sort of esolang. There are 6 distinct characters: ()[]+!. The language that most corresponds to this is JSFuck.

I never bothered to learn esolangs, and even if I did, the file that's given to us is gigantic. Luckily, JSLang is an esolang that is actually completely valid JavaScript, so you can simply just run it using your browser's console. We can also use a decoder such as [JSUnFuck](http://codertab.com/JsUnFuck).

If we use a decoder, we end up with the following JavaScript. The flag is stored inside of a variable called flag.


var flag = "hsctf{esoteric_javascript_is_very_verbose}"; window.location = "https://hsctf.com";
