Helpful Reading Material



The description says that we need to find the only human readable file in the inhere directory. To see the file format I used the file command on all the files in the inhere directory.

for x in `find inhere -type f -print`;
        file $x;

I got

inhere/-file08: data
inhere/-file05: data
inhere/-file07: ASCII text
inhere/-file04: data
inhere/-file00: data
inhere/-file01: data
inhere/-file06: data
inhere/-file03: data
inhere/-file09: data
inhere/-file02: data

Thus inhere/-file07 is the file we are looking for. cat inhere/-file07 gives the password for the next level.

Level 5 password: koReBOKuIDDepwhWk7jZC0RTdopnAYKh
