# Forensics

## LSB fun

have you ever heard of LSB :) ?

Author : h4x5p4c3

file : [user.zip](Assets//Files/user.zip)


After you unzip the file you'll get a jpg image, the first thing came to my mind is to use [jsteg](https://github.com/lukechampine/jsteg)
jsteg reveal chall.jpg

and Bingo!

## Snow
I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently?

Author : h4x5p4c3

file : [snow.zip](Assets//Files/snow.zip)

I unzipped the file and got some hidden files , so I tried firstly to check ```flag.txt``` but it wasn't the correct flag


so I kept checking all the hidden files and folders until I got : ```welc0me_to_zh3r0_ctf```

which is also not the flag, so I went back to the unhidden files ```chall.txt``` , from the name of the challenge we can guess that we should use [stegsnow](https://0x00sec.org/t/steganography-concealing-messages-in-text-files/500) or [snow](http://www.darkside.com.au/snow/)


This indicates that we need a password , I tried ```john``` using ```rockyou.txt``` but I got nothing, so I remembered the string ```welc0me_to_zh3r0_ctf``` that I got from ```.secret.txt```



## is it a troll???
there is baby key and baby hide the key somewhere. Can you help his father to find the key??

At the beginning I tried ```strings```,```binwalk``` etc.. But nothing interesting, so I tried ```exiftool```


There's a text at Author looks encrypted by ```Base64``` ,but that wasn't true so I tried ```Base58``` and ```Base62``` using [CyberChef](https://gchq.github.io/CyberChef/) and ```Base62``` worked.


I got ```pass : itrolledyou``` ,so since it mentioned password I used [steghide](http://steghide.sourceforge.net/) tool with ```itrolledyou``` as a password

steghide extract -sf Trollface.jpg
It extracted a zip file that contains another image


I tried usual things such as ```strings, exiftool etc..``` but again nothing interesting , then I used [zsteg](https://github.com/zed-0xff/zsteg) which is a great tool for ```.png``` and ```.bmp```. I got a strange text again that looks encrypted


So again using [CyberChef](https://gchq.github.io/CyberChef/) I tried all Bases and ```Base58``` worked.



# Crypto

## RSA-Warmup
RSA is one of the first public-key cryptosystems and is widely used for secure data transmission. In such a cryptosystem, the encryption key is public and distinct from the decryption key which is kept secret.
You all know this :p
here is a warmup question.

After connecting we will get :

CT: 64355745797365388490412995076301513621958191046794834306956838312585280589421173619216473785642127494178580195654010801071081452854241462208557812725513288017128104994318837129257203983692773852306990540483172991569629801482576680150381602438163038587331616025889766347178216490112604297980040248921138616716362273714
Firstly we need to factorize ```N``` by using [Integer factorization calculator](https://www.alpertron.com.ar/ECM.HTM)


We can choose eaither the highlighted value or the one after ```x``` , then we need to remove all whitespaces from that value we choosed I use this website [Delete All Whitespace Characters](https://www.browserling.com/tools/remove-all-whitespace)

Then you can use any RSA tool but I prefer this one that I got from a write-up video on YouTube [BabyRSADecryption.py](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKt0x-UhPeY)



## Mix

At the `BASE`ment no. `65536`,
A man is irritated with
`SHIFT` key in his `KEYBOARD`
as it's a sticky key,
A kid is having chocolate
icecream with a `SPOON`.

> Fast of all , the challenge description has everything you need to find out the flag.

At first when I unzip the `Mix.zip` archived file I got two new file under the Mix folder

1. [flag.txt](Assets//Files/Mix/flag.txt)

file data:

If you opened this then you are a n00b

2. [chall_encrypted.txt](Assets//Files/Mix/chall_encrypted.txt)

file data :


The `flag.txt` file contents are not so interesting so we have move forward to the `chall_encrypted.txt` file.
At first, when I saw the the content of the file I thought that I have to translate that shitty thing.
For this I goes to [google translate](https://translate.google.co.in/) but it couldn't find anything (except some gibberish).
After this I returned back to the main site & read the challenge description properly.
At this time I saw there are some words which are highlited into bold.
After seeing the first highlited word I have got a question in my mind that is the cipher text is any type of base encrypted data.
To find out the answer I just searched on google for the first two highlited words together & I found that the encrypted data is
a [base65536](https://www.better-converter.com/Encoders-Decoders/Base65536-Decode) hash encrypted text.
After decoding that file data I got this :


flag 1:
Yjod od s lrunpstf djogy vo[jrtyrcy jrtr od upi g;sh xj4t-}U-i+dit4+

flag 2:

flag 3:


These are the main three parts of the flag.
The first one is [Shift Keyboard](https://www.dcode.fr/keyboard-shift-cipher) encrypted data as the next highlited word from the challenge description says.
After decoding this I got the first part of the flag.



The middle one is looks like some decimal number presentation of the middle part of the flag.
But I am wrong. When I was googling for this I got [this artical](https://www.reddit.com/r/codes/comments/evz1uk/riddle_from_discord_coding_language_if_you_could/) that have this following text.

Hex ascii codes. 20 = Space, 30 = 0, 31 = 1.


There after, first I have turned the [hex into ascii](https://www.rapidtables.com/convert/number/hex-to-ascii.html) format & I got some binaries. After that I turned the [binary to text](https://www.rapidtables.com/convert/number/binary-to-ascii.html) format.
And yup I got the middle part of the flag.



The third one is [base64](https://www.base64decode.net/) encoded data. After decoding this I got another cipher text which looks like some
binary data but that is a [Spoon](https://www.dcode.fr/spoon-language) cipher as the last highlited word from the challenge description says
& yeah I got the last part of the flag as well.




# Web
## Web-Warmup

Chall Link : http://web.zh3r0.ml:8080/

Easy peasy.

Firstly we check the page source


As there's nothing interesting , let's check ```bg.css```


**flag:** ```zh3r0{y3s_th1s_1s_w4rmup}```
