do not use rockyou instead use the default one to get the 3rd zip

What default wordlist to use?

the default list from that very famous binary

Some hint for big hex in matr****** 4? I have all str***gs

This was quite interesting. Props to the creator very well done. Learnt a few things from this. The last bit stumped me but HTB has a great community!

Got it, thanks to all those that helped.
If anyone needs a hint, you can PM me.

use rockyou, if it works

You can pull out all the strings with that popular tool, but not with the default settings.

Very fun challenge! It was difficult at first but after some rethinking I managed to solve it.

My only hint: You don’t need to decompress all the files. Probably you don’t have enough storage to do it.

I’m stuck in matrioshka4,the flag is not the flag?Any hint?

As for rockyou: didn’t work for me, although the pwd is contained (grep through it and it’s in there). dunno why but wasted some time

overlooked a crucial bit the whole time and almost lost my head … hint: if something isn’t something, it might be something else :wink:

Awesome challenge! The initial part was very confusing,

I’m stuck with something that is not the flag (
Can anyone give me a hint on what I’m missing?

Anyone able to give a hint at the 3->4 step?? I’m running out of disk space and sanity. :tongue:

So, i got matrioshka4, so what i shoul do next. idk :frowning:

Hey thanks for the hint. I got the information you referred but I am stuck now I do not know where will I use that information. Any hints?

Yeah, so I’ve gotten to 4, with not the flag and huge hex. Still bugging me what to do with it…
