Hey folks, This is my last writeup for PlaidCTF! You can get a list of all my writeups here. Kappa is a 275-point pwnable level called Kappa, and the goal is to capture a bunch of Pokemon and make them battle each other! Ultimately, this issue came down to a type-confusion bug that let us […]
Hey folks, I know in my last blog I promised to do a couple exploit ones instead of doing boring Web stuff. But, this level was really easy and I still wanted to do a writeup, so you're just going to have to wait a little while longer for my 'kappa' writeup!
I know what you're thinking of: what's with all the Web levels!? Well, I was saving the exploitation levels for last!

There are at least three levels I either solved or worked on that involved serialization attacks (mtpox, reeekeeeeee, and this […]

Hey folks, It's a little bit late coming, but this is my writeup for the Fuzzy level from the Ghost in the Shellcode 2014 CTF! I kept putting off writing this, to the point where it became hard to just sit down and do it. But I really wanted to finish before PlaidCTF 2014, which […]
