Alright so im working on timed 1.

its obvious what type of encryption and everything, i am just having trouble using a script to access hbh. some type of brute force/ dos prevention script maybe? but ive written scripts in vb.net and php, and neither one of them was able to pull text off the hbh server.

php:
Code

<?php
$contents = file_get_contents( "hellboundhackers.org" );
echo $contents;
//returns blank page
?>





vb.net:
Code

  Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim file As String
        Dim results As String
        file = "http://www.hellboundhackers.org"

        Dim web_client As System.Net.WebClient = New System.Net.WebClient


        Dim response As System.IO.Stream = web_client.OpenRead(file)

        Dim stream_reader As New IO.StreamReader(response)
        results = stream_reader.ReadToEnd()
        MsgBox(results)
'returns a blank message box

    End Sub




both of these work just fine with every other web site ive tried, hbh just blocks it :angry:

any pointers here?

Inline Javascript maybe? Not sure. Then also, maybe you have to get the specific file.

Actually, "Blank page" happenedt o me many times, thats cause of cookie...
you can pu tyour cookies in array like this:

$headers = array( "Host: hellboundhackers.org",
"User-Agent: Mozilla Firefox",
"Referer: http://www.hellboundhackers.org/challenges/timed/timedx/",
"Cookie: PHPSESSID=rest of cookie"
//coooode......
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, $headers);

Actually, none of timed challs worked for me now....
be cause i think the sites isn't on the root server,
like when you get contents of the page "http://hellboundh. . .", it converts to this page "http://87.106.143. . ."
I dk, maybe this would be fixed..?
Or i am wrong?

according to other posts ive heard that hbh requires a user agent. maybe that's it? they said that you get blank page if you dont have one. so...?:ninja::ninja::ninja:

why are you opening old dead thread?? BTW you need to login to access the challenge pages, and also have a valid referer, useragent and cookies with all the requests
