The challenge binary is a 64 bit executable. The objective was to login as user blankwall by finding the password. The supplied password is processed using a hash function at 0x00401540. Below is the decompiled code of the function:

uint32_t calc_hash(char *input) { int counter; uint32_t state; state = 5381; for (counter = 0; input[counter]; ++counter) state = 33 * state + input[counter]; return state; }The output of this function must be equal to 0x0D386D209. The length of the password is not known and state variable is 32-bit, hence modulo 0xffffffff. I used Z3 to solve this and multiple solutions are possible. Below is the solver:

#!/usr/bin/env python from z3 import * # >>> (0x1505 * 0x21 * 0x21 * 0x21) < 0xD386D209 # True # minimum length of password passlen = 4 def init_solver(passlen): s = Solver() vectors = {} for c in range(passlen): vec = BitVec(str(c), 8) vectors[c] = vec s.add(And(0x20 < vec, vec < 0x7F)) return s, vectors while True: s, vectors = init_solver(passlen) state = 0x1505 for i in range(passlen): vec = ZeroExt(24, vectors[i]) state = state * 0x21 + vec s.add(state == 0xD386D209) if s.check() == sat: break passlen += 1 m = s.model() c = lambda m, i: chr(m[vectors[i]].as_long()) print ''.join([c(m,i) for i in range(passlen)])This gives the password UIcy1y. Login using the password as

con.write('USER blankwall' + chr(0xa)) password = 'PASS UIcy1y\x00' + chr(0xa) con.write(password)The file re_solution had the flag,

**flag{n0_c0ok1e_ju$t_a_f1ag_f0r_you}**
