New NoVA CTF Challenge

Magnifying Glass Looking at BitsThe folks over at NoVA CTF recently released a new contest to the NoVA Hackers list. They again gave me permission to republish the challenge here for the rest of the community to enjoy. If everything goes well … expect two more follows-ons to this challenge in the near future.

You might also want to check out some of their previous challenges here and here. Well on to the details of this contest…

“Reverse Engineering CTF – Part 1”

Analyze the following file to find “something.” Your hint is the name of the file. Provide a small one paragraph write-up with the steps you did to complete the challenge. Note: Patching the exe takes away all the fun so I’d avoid trying to do this. And for those that might be concerned…

***THIS IS SAFE TO RUN ON ANY COMPUTER, THERE IS NO EVIL HERE***

(or at least I am told from the creator of the CTF… obviously rename this too easteregg.exe)

easteregg._x_.pdf

Good luck everyone! Today’s post image is from BreakTheSecurity.com.
