[pbctf 2020] R0bynotes

Rails is secure by default so it’s perfect for my amazing notes app https://r0bynotes.chal.perfect.blue - source Note: If you find the flag, please remove the flag{..} wrapper and wrap it with pbctf{…} instead We’re presented with a ruby-on-rails application, which always comes with a lot of files, directory and other kinds of cruft, so let’s get down to the files that normally really matter: the controllers.

[pbctf 2020] Sploosh

I wanted to make my own URL scraper, but parsing HTML is hard, so I used some random open source scraping project instead. http://sploosh.chal.perfect.blue/ - links to the source When first opening the webpage, we’re also given the source.

[Insomni’Hack 2019] Phuck3 (500, php) / Bypassing open_basedir with two simple lines of php.

(Note: I wasn’t able to solve this challenge during the CTF, but I solved it afterwards) The challenge description gives us a webserver address and a text, that we should use only the php inbuilt functions to get the /flag and show the webmaster that the php builtin functions are insecure as well. Upon loading the website address, we are immediately greeted with an image as well as - presumably - the code for the index.
