#### Unintended solution
It was supposed to be a hard challenge but the original challenge had an unintended (but not unthought of) vulnerability that led to a trivial solution and hence revealign a huge hint towards the intended solution. It was solved by 103 teams. The reason behind the vulnerability was a typo I made in the response headers and which was:

HTTP
Referrer-policy: no-referer


Can you spot the typo? I typed no-referer instead of no-referrer which resulted in unsafe-url being set. Because of which, any URL sent through the form would leak the secret endpoint to admin's "login page" :face_palm:.

By sending the URL from the referer one can see:

Indeed, the flag was **justCTF{cross_origin_timing_lol}**
