(from qr code + from base64 + and rot13) and finally u get the flag

another falsely advertised “easy” challenge. no details just the 411:
1. first go here: https://zxing.org/w/decode.jspx and upload qr file (you should have already downloaded it from Mega into your Downloads dir/folder).
2. then go here: https://base64.guru/converter/decode/text and translate the base64 string into text.
3. finally go here: https://rot13.com/ and get the flag.
THAT LAST LINK DESERVES A PAYCHECK FROM CTF”learn”: he or she did all the teaching for them.
always Remember: in hacking (as in life), the best ‘hack’ is Google (or duck duck go)
BTW: mltnlck has a much more elegant sol’n - if u know how to decode the qr in cyberchef (I do not - but i didn’t see his comment till post-solving anyways)

Things are fun to solve with little guidance. Without guidance I dont know what amount of intelligence I should have to solve them!!!
cyber chef was enough for me here (from qr code + from base64 + and rot13) and finally u get the flag

I pasted the encoded message into google and scrolled past all the "CTFlearn QR code answers" and one of the sites said rot13 decoder. thats how I figured it out.

How is one supposed to know that there's ROT13 letter substitution?

I highly recommend Cyberchef to do this one. You can use the function "Parse QR-Code" to solve the first step. For step 2 you need to decode it. Try and figure out which format uses an "=" sign to fill up triplets at the end. The last one to me is actually quite hard to find out, if you don't know what to do. But you can see that the position of the ":" and the "_" already kinda makes sense. Maybe the letters just need some rotation?
I enjoy clever hints, but we really need to go by the unspoken rule of not sharing flags publicly. Severus did a pretty good job on this!
How do we get to know about double decrypts ?
