Only in a simulated challenge. In every other case, privilege escalation is one of the highest priorities, and this challenge gives you enough to accomplish that without logging in.

*cough, cough* I mean, of course it's important. Grin

Edit: I felt really stupid when I finally got the last exploit. It seems there are a lot of opportunities for people to over-complicate the logic of it. Smile

well reguardless congrats on that


Thanks, but it's not deserved. It's just a simulation, after all. These challenges only serve to introduce concepts, not so much techniques.

Well... I am a firm believer in the fact that challenge articles are evil, though I must admit that I have used a few to help with some of the rockier parts of some challenges. I would have three main concerns with an article on this challenge:

1. The challenge is still relatively fresh, so I don't think it's time for an article yet.

2. There's not really a good way to write an article on the challenge. Just about any hint you can give as to the nature of the exploits pretty much comprises a spoiler.

3. To prevent the article from being a spoiler, the article would basically be limited to 3 or 4 sentences. By being vague, it would only say a bit more than "look everywhere, test the obvious".

Maybe system will write an article on this challenge, too. He seems to have experience with challenge articles. Smile

jeez 135 for that one...i thought i would have built off that exploit like last time but it doesn't actully allow u 2 look at anything more eh...lame, ya i know what ya mean about just the introducing concepts. Seems like main issue is error pages. I mean im far from good at this but most of the time, most the information i gather is by producing diffrent error messages on a given page. Which you cant really do in this

Please please, keep the flames down. Just take it to MSN/AIM/gChat or whatever if you want to discuss things whilst having a heated opinion.

Not that I don't like flames or anything, but others get burned easily.

So please, behaving a liiiiiiiiittle bit more nice doesn't hurt -anyone-.
