This challenge is a little bit interesting. The developers gave us a clue, which is an encrypted text message that incorporates the password for the login page. Our job is to decrypt the message and retrieve the password.
The quickest way to identify the encryption type of the message is to use a Google search engine. Copy the code and paste it in the search bar and hit “Enter”. Google will not decrypt it for you, but at least it will guess what type of encryption it might be.
SQL Injection is a sort of infusion assault that makes it conceivable to execute malicious SQL statements. These statements control a database server behind a web application. Assailants can utilize SQL Injection vulnerabilities to sidestep application safety efforts. They can circumvent authentication and authorization of a page or web application and recover the content of the whole SQL database. They can likewise utilize SQL Injection to include, change, and erase records in the database. SQL Injection vulnerability may influence any site or web application that uses the SQL database, for example, MySQL, Oracle, SQL Server, or others. Offenders may utilize…
While temporary cookies are primarily used to store the session identifier, many applications also utilize them to store additional session-specific data (such as specific preferences). The application treats these cookies as if they were read-only parameters. The application’s use of these cookies is frequently susceptible, making it a target for attackers who modify the cookies to circumvent the application’s security features.
Let’s take a look at the challenge. First, click on the “Enter site” button and analyze the behavior.
Looks like in this example we need to tamper with the cookies. …
A Caesar cipher, also known as Caesar’s cipher, the shift cipher, Caesar’s code, or Caesar shift in cryptography, is one of the most basic and well-known encryption schemes. It’s a substitution cipher in which each letter in the plaintext is replaced by a letter that’s a certain number of positions down the alphabet. With a left shift of 3, for example, D would become A, E would become B, and so on. Julius Caesar is credited with inventing the approach, which he utilized in his private communication.
In this challenge, the cipher is already given. All you need to do…
CSRF (Cross-Site Request Forgery) is a type of attack that compels an authenticated user to perform undesirable actions on a web application. An attacker can deceive users of a web application into performing activities of the attacker’s choosing using social engineering techniques (such as delivering a link via email or chat). If the target is a regular user, a successful CSRF attack can drive them to make state-changing requests, such as transferring funds or altering their email address. CSRF can compromise the entire web application if the victim is an administrative account.
The CSRF attack might occasionally be stored on…
In this particular challenge…
This challenge is very similar to the previous one. You can find more information about it by visiting the article below.
Let’s dive into it right away.
In this example, we are presented with the image and a login form. Right-click on the image and download it to inspect further. Once you downloaded it, open it with a WordPad application and look for strings.
Steganography is a broadly utilized system that controls data to conceal their reality. The word steganography is gotten from the Greek words “stegos,” signifying “cover,” and “grafia,” meaning “writing,” characterizing it as “covered writing.” Steganography is one such pro-security development in which secret information is implanted in a cover. Steganography is an art and science of communicating in a manner that conceals the presence of communication. Even though Steganography furnishes excellent security, you can use it with Cryptography for better confidentiality and security.
Let’s take a look at the challenge and see what we can find.
The reverse cipher encrypts a message by printing it in reverse order. So “Hello world!” becomes “!dlrow olleH.” Decryption is as simple as reversing the reversed message to obtain the original message. The steps for encryption and decryption are the same.
This is a very simple challenge. In this example, a reverse text is already given, so we need to decrypt it to reveal the password.
Copy the reverse encrypted text. Open up your browser and Google search for “decrypt reverse text”.
A user agent is a “string” — a line of text — that the webserver uses to identify the browser and operating system. This may appear straightforward, yet user agents have evolved into a jumbled mess over time.
In this challenge, the browser allows access to the page only as a “secure_user_agent”. Let’s see how we can accomplish it. For this particular example, it would be better to use Google Chrome.
