Welcome To Our New Website

November 25th, 2014 by Kevin Hoffer

Hello and welcome to our new website! A big part of our web presence is to open a dialog with those who may be interested in working at Caesar Creek Software. We hope to give prospective candidates an idea of what our environment is like, as well as to provide a glimpse at the type of work we do and the skillset that is required to be successful here. To that end, we plan on posting periodic challenges to our website Blog.

For challenge #1, download the attached binary. First, figure out how to turn it into something you can analyze with a tool like IDA or a debugger. Next you need to figure out how to make the binary do something interesting. After that, you will need to set up the correct conditions to make the binary provide you with some text output. Brute force will probably work but shouldn’t be necessary. The final output will tell you what to do next. You should be able to solve this puzzle with a copy of IDA (Free or Professional), a Linux VM, and maybe a little Python. If you’d like to work here, this is an excellent first step in helping us evaluate your talent. Good luck!
