Good challenge. If you have no idea, try to figure out which commands are executed for each option. Feel free to message me for hints.

Just wanted to post this so others don’t waste as much time as I dd with it. If you can’t seem to get the service to do much; likely you’re using telnet as I was.

If you’ve telnet in, the script will not take your input. See below:

1 => Upload a new file (10 file(s) remaining)
2 => List your uploaded files (0 file(s) uploaded so far)
3 => Delete a file
4 => Print file content
5 => Compress and download all your files
0 => Quit (you will lose your files!)

Choose an option: 1
[-] No such option.
1 => Upload a new file (10 file(s) remaining)
2 => List your uploaded files (0 file(s) uploaded so far)
3 => Delete a file

0 => Quit (you will lose your files!)

If you use nc instead; it works fine.
