ZeroDays CTF 2017

ZeroDays CTF is one of the best-known competitions in Ireland, as well as one of the largest in-person capture the flag events in the world. 


This CTF was based around Superhero movies and comics. All challenges were based around the church and the theme of comic books and movies and had challenges that included Physical, Forensics, Exploitation, and more types of challenges.

One of my favorite challenges for this CTF was one of the simplest challenges it was called “Mirror Mirror” in which a word was mirrored on itself, this is a challenge that confused close to over 200 people. For me solving it was completely by accident, I put the login sheet on my laptop to read a challenge, and when it did it covered half of the screen and removed the mirror allow me to see the word as it was. 

So simple but yet confused so much
