Description: I know the flag is in this file! I just cannot open it for some reason...
We're given a text file.
In it the only recognizable string is
This File has been encrypted with Vim!
Since the mode was
~03 (VimCrypt~03), the most secure mode at this point, I didn't find any exploits to cheese the encryption.
So I resulted to good old bruteforce.
I found this github repo with a nice bruteforce script.
Using it with
rockyou.txt as the dictionary yields us the flag in seconds.
