Hexgedit - H@cktivityCon CTF

Category: Misc
Solves (at time of writing): 767
Description: Woah! Someone opened the flag file in hexedit... and then gedit??


We are given an image of a file in hex format.

To get the hex from the image we can use an OCR system that detects the numbers and puts them into text format.

(I cropped the image to just the hex itself first to make it easier)

I used this one, but it shouldnt matter.

After getting the Hex I used yet another website to get the ascii representation of that hex.

And we get a nice little text with the flag.
