Here is your weekend challenge. Let’s try something different this week
A group of Black Hats, known as the Cr4king GuYs are doing very bad things in the Internet, so your team have decided to stop them. Your colleagues have hacked into one of their computers and they’ve found a hidden partition that may contain interesting information.
So, they dumped the partition into a file and gave it to you, the in-house forensic analyst, to figure out if there is something interesting in there.
Retrieve the passwords in the disk image to finally obliterate those skids.
To probe you solved the challenge, post the passwords you found in the comments. Use the spoiler tag so your solution is not seen by other people trying to solve the challenge. Be free to provide a brief write-up explaining how did you solve the challenge
This is a very basic challenge so there is only two hints.
Hint1: This is a forensic challenge not a cryptographic one
The straightforward to crypt a file with gpg is something like this:
$ gpg -c thefile
$ rm thefile
In case you are not familiar with
mount, once you get the partition image (check previous challenges for that)
$ mkdir tmp
$ sudo mount the_image ./tmp
$ cd tmp
Good luck and Hack Fun
