    Great one, there's just too much useless content and its flag{} not CTFlearn{}

  • ill_advisor

    Good thing is that this challenge actually forces you to write some code - it's hard to figure out the pattern with just CyberChef.

    So I have "Iqsi" -> "Hope". But what comes next is just garbage

    I've looked at ROT47 and OTP (which gives me "Hope" then nothing of use). Is there any other sly hints that can be given for this one?

    • ill_advisor

      consider the fact that getting nothing of use after 'Hope' might be actually a part of the challenge.
