OverTheWire: Natas Level 4 – #appsec #webapp #websecurity #wargames

Another day, another challenge…

Today’s blog post we’re going to solve level 4 from the Natas wargame.

Let’s begin.

Going to the following link we see:

Changing the referrer to natas5, and clicking OK we see:



We found the flag!
