Official Window's Infinity Edge Discussion

Official discussion thread for Window’s Infinity Edge. Please do not post any spoilers or big hints.

This is driving me nuts. I found multiple troll flags, is that intended?

I found 2 troll flags, and then the real one. If it’s easy to see, it’s wrong.

I see. I would PM you for a nudge but I don’t have enough rank. Is this challenge possible on Linux or do you need windows specific debuggers? (idk if this is a spoiler. forgive me if it is)

@sparkla this = needing to use windows specific debuggers to reverse stuff

nvm got it. Just had to dig a little deeper :slight_smile:

This is a very enjoyable straightforward challenge. If you did oBfsC4t10n challenge this one should not cause any problems.

is it necessary to create some algorithm to decrypt?

How did you manage after? I am a few steps after that and currently have no idea how to go about run everything that’s being dropped

You don’t need to run any shellcode, and you don’t need Windows. This is forensics, not reversing

Real great work from the authors.

I just have troll flags at the moment, but i’d be curious to know if this is close to some malware that actually existed ?

I am pretty sure i am at the end of the russian dolls, i know what tools are used, what technique is used to run them, etc… but i’m surprised i cannot debug a piece of shellcode at the end. For the other challenges i had no problem but in this case it just doesn’t work… would appreciate some help.

I feel like I’ve been through everything multiple times. I’ve found the troll flags, decoded everything I can find but still no flag. What am I missing!!!

Got it. Go read the brief again before you go on a wild goose chase. Then use that information to narrow down where you should look.

Finally solved this challenge! It was very fun, thanks @splintercode and @stefano118!
You indeed don’t need to run any shellcode…
If anyone needs a small nudge, feel free to send me a PM!

i’d appreciate a nudge on this !!

About time I solved this. Great challenge @splintercode and @stefano118

Nice mix of trolling and herring there @splintercode @stefano118 - great challenge.
To anyone still stuck - keep at it - the advice above is good, if you need a small nudge - PM.

Thanks @splintercode and @stefano118 for the great challenge that help us explore real life tools and techniques that attackers could use

Someone active for a little nudge? PM me.
