Solving CTF’s

To solve a CTF challenge, you typically need to gather information, find vulnerabilities to exploit, and escalate your privileges to extract a flag that proves you completed the challenge.

Gathering Information

The first step in solving a CTF challenge is to gather information. This can be done by reading the challenge description, looking at the source code, and using tools like nmap to scan the target.

Locating the Flag

The flag for challenges are always going to be one string of text. If you think you've arrived to a spot where the flag might be, look for the word "flag".
