No idea, I’ve never seen it before. I’d suggest raising a jira ticket with HTB so they can look into it.

As the flags are dynamic it might be that the system thinks they are being reused. Every time you reset the box (or switch VPNs) there are new user/root flags.

If the box has been reset since you got the flags, the ones you have will be invalid and you will need to get them again. The best advice is to submit the flags as soon as you get them rather than wait until you have both.

No, sorry I meant raising jira ticket with HTB to have this fixed.

That warning comes up on every flag submission. Have you pasted a hash in?

So it is likely that the hash you have is different from the one registered for the box. This could be because it is broken, or there has been a reset since you got the hash.

Your choices are:

  • reboot and repwn the box to get a new hash
  • raise a jira ticket and ask HTB to fix the box
