So last night I finished the Stripe CTF. Level’s 6, 7, and 8 were a bear. Once the CTF is done on Wednesday I plan on doing a quick write up of my different solutions to the levels. I will be curious to see how my methods differ from others. I know my level 8 solution was not the most efficient, and required a lot more manual interaction than necessary. Either way I will happily take the T-Shirt, and wear it proudly at the next security conference I go to.
If you are interested you can see my times here The long time for level 8 is a little disingenuous. I took Friday night and all of Saturday off from the CTF, as I had my GXPN exam Saturday afternoon I Passed”, and prior family plans on Saturday night.
