To the surprise of probably many, to this day I had never properly attempted a CTF in the red team sense of the word. I had dabbled with little Reverse Engineering challenges and Crackme's posted on the site. But I had never downloaded a VM with a vulnerable machine.
I started my CTF adventure with this box. I struggled initially but @L0k1 was there to help me through it.
I would recommend this to any new-comers to CTF's, that might be uncertain about them. Give it a go! And let me know how it went!
