We are in desperate need of a translator who understands the languages of varoius Indian tribes. We already know how to speak to the Apache tribe via HTTP but we have some stuff missing. We offer 5$ per successfully translated language.
(That means you can send us 7 solutions to this challenge and will receive 5 points for each.)
SMTP GOPHER POP3 FINGER TFTP IRC NNTP
We realised that there was a tftp server running since it was possible to connect with the following command.
Afterwards we used the default ports and programs to connect to the other protocols:
- connect to port 25 with telnet
- send mail to
telnet wildwildweb.fluxfingers.net gopher
- connected to port 79 using telnet
\r\nto get user list
r00t\r\nto get details for the user r00t
The port was open but TFTP does not support a list command, so we wrote a script. Guessing the name of the file is another solution.
connection to tftp:
Here is the file, including a bonus text adventure.
- connected to port 6667
- listed the channels with /list
- joined channel #flagchannel
- send a private message to flagbot.
telnet wildwildweb.fluxfingers.net nntp
5 points per challenge makes 35 points in total.
