@RealTryHackMe #AdventOfCyber Series: Challenge 10 – You’re A Mean One, Mr. Yeti #TisTheSeasonForHacking

Another day, another challenge…

In this post, we’re starting a new series, the Advent of Cyber, hosted by TryHackMe. This is the fourth year of the Advent of Cyber, where a challenge is released every day leading to Christmas. There will be 25 challenges; we’re McSkidy, an elf trying to save Christmas.

In our tenth challenge, Elf McSkidy was nowhere to be found. Elf Recon McRed noticed on one of their screens that Elf McSkidy was trapped in a game. Oh, no! An icy note reads, “Only by winning the unwinnable game shall your dear Elf McSkidy be reclaimed.”

The topics explored in this challenge are learning how data is stored in games and other applications. The effects of changing data in memory of a running game. Finally, use simple tools – in this case, Cetus, to find and alter data in memory.

Can Exploit Recon McRed beat the unwinnable game? Find out below!
