14 – strings

Solution

Navigate to the folder

cd /problems/strings_1_c7bac958dd6a4b695dc72446d8014f59

the file was executable so I ran it to see what would happen, as expected it a file with sting in loop.

Reloaded the the shell terminal navigated to the file

strings | grep CTF

Gave that a shot to see search the file with grep for CTF and nothing returned in a reasonable amount of time so restarted.

after a couple of different trial and errors I got this to work 

strings strings | grep CTF
picoCTF{sTrIngS_sAVeS_Time_d7c8de6c}
