b01lers CTF resnet Model Inversion

With KITCTF we participated in the bo01lers CTF and finished 6th. There were some quite fun challenges. Including the resnet challenge, which is a machine learning challenge. I hope to see more machine learning challenges in the future. Challenge description: A naive AI startup released a new visual password system based on State-of-the-Art Neural Network technology. Wanting to save on costs they reuse the popular Resnet model to create embeddings which input password images are checked against hoping to leverage the feature extraction capabilities of Resnet.

Read more writeups at kitctf.de Challenge description: Please use my shitty blog 🤎! We are given a docker container running php. The only notable things about it, is that there is a readflag binary on the server and that the webroot is /var/www/html. Other than that only index.php is interesting: <?php // TODO: fully implement multi-user / guest feature :( $secret = 'SECRET_PLACEHOLDER'; $salt = '$6$'.substr(hash_hmac('md5', $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'], $secret), 16).

Tenbagger # Challenge description: I think I took it too far and made some trades and lost everything. My only chance to fix my account balance is a tenbagger. We are given a pcap and open in Wireshark. It contains a lot of what looks like normal web browsing. But somewhere in there are a few FIX messages. FIX is the Financial Information eXchange protocol. First, I thought that we need to get the credentials from the FIX login, but there are no such packages.

The challenge file is only one pdf. Opening the only shows the text “Real-World Misco-graphy”.
