Reverse Engineering Challenge – 10/1/2015

October 1st, 2015 by Brian

For this challenge, 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!
