Official emo Discussion

I think there are number of way to solve it, as someone say there is a VPN needed, but I solved it without VPN.
Its not an EASY challenge.

Honestly, one of the most fun challenges and rewarding challenges I’ve done. Absolutely destroyed me. Thank you @sooperc0w for pulling me out of the weeds. Also, thank you @0xdf for the challenge!
Dm for nudges!

Solved it, but not in a very intelligent way… Would love to see a writeup of this

Hey I solved with office but want to know without office can someone DM ?

Glad to hear so many people enjoyed this one. It’s based off a real phishing document used by a prolific cyber-crime gang.

Some tips I’ll through out:

  • You don’t need to resolve anything.
  • You don’t need office. There are tools out there to dump office documents and their pieces from linux. There are also parts where having office will make this somewhat easier.

It took me 3 days to get the flag. xD
Thank you @0xdf, learned a lot!

This was harder than most boxes!

When you find what the evil document is doing, you can pare that down to something that is ALMOST readable, but definately works when you run it.

Inspect all of the things, and don’t skip any of them. Assume everything is important.

I just finished doing this challenge but without any static analysis, is there any official writeup regarding this challenge? Appreciate if any of you guys that done through static to share writeup. Thanks!

Same as many here, I got a bunch of urls and some decimal list with PS yet I don’t get what’s next…

dm for any nudges

Finally got it after a couple of days! First time doing malware analysis, so it was quite a learning experience for me :smiley: Thanks for a cool challenge.

Really entertaining challenge! Thanks a lot @0xdf! Finally got the flag but doing dynamic analysis. I’d love to know how to solve it doing static analysis only.
DM me if you need a hint.

Hi, I think I’ve reached the last phase, but I can’t decode the output. I don’t want to spoil anything so I cannot go any deeper. However some hint about that stage?

Solved. Best advice: don’t overthink this one (That’s what I did). You can go pretty far down the rabbit hole. Just remember, it’s an EASY challenge.

Hi @R3v4ng3l I am working on this EMO challenge and not able to solve it. Any hint?

Hey nice seeing ya in my scripts @0xdf :smiley:
Great challenge, thanks a lot!!
I’m surprised that I actually enjoyed browsing vba / powershell!
My static approach was soooo clunky, I couldn’t help but find out what that next line was doing ^^’

Hello, I’m stuck on this challenge. Like others have said I have got a bunch of non working urls. What else am I missing. Would appreciate a nudge.

Right. I got to the point where I can read the ps, yet no flags. What th. Spent much more time on this, than it deserves, can anyone give me a nudge?

Why can’t I decode this long base64 powershell command??? i really need to get some training on decoding.

Do I really have to deobv all the marcos found?
