Scenario: Your Scenario
This is a longer description to giving you a clue as to what to attack



When you are connected onto the cluster, you're ready to go! Remember:

  • The scenario instructions have useful info, and tips about where to start the hunt
  • Flags are in the format flag_ctf{636f6e74726f6c706c616e65}
  • Pay attention to your starting point

TIP: keep a track of what you're doing, copy the tips from the start and keep notes to track your own progress as you work through the attack.
