# basic-pass-2 (150)

## Problem

Your company is testing out its new employee portal. After your previous shot, they made the password a bit more secure, so you can't brute force it anymore. Rise up to the occasion and demonstrate why a local machine is a bad idea, and having the account credentials on a remote server is a better idea.

## Solution

Same thing as basic-pass-1. We can run `strings` on the file and then `grep` it for the flag.

```
$ strings basic-pass-2-linux | grep "bcactf{.*}"
Congrats! The key is bcactf{its_another_password}
```
