WargamesMY CTF December 2018: Missing Word

WargamesMY CTF 2018: Missing Word

The challenge in WargamesMY CTF 2018 require us to crack a portion of the flag which is the missing 6 characters consist of upper case and lower case denominate as XXXXXX as per below:


The SHA256 hashsum of the complete flag were given.


Obviously it is a password cracking challenge therefore we will be using Hashcat for this task.

First, we need to generate a custom wordlists. We simply use this Python Wordlist Generator script found on github. (I promise i will learn more later how to generate wordlists using Hashcat itself :P)

We modified the code a bit to suit the requirement.

But it seems like it will take forever and the output wordlists size were huge. Then the idea is to split the wordlists into 2 part and generate only the last 3 character for the first part while generate only the first 3 character for the second part of the wordlists. We will use Hashcat combinator mode (-a 1) later.

Finish generated both part of the wordlists within few seconds and total file size only less than 5mb this time.

Let’s crack it!

Hashcat argument:
-a 1 : combinator mode (combine both wordlists)
-m 1400 : cracking sha256 mode
missing_word.hash : the sha256 hash file
left.txt : first part of the wordlists
right.txt : second part of the wordlists

With less than hour (22 minutes to be exact) we managed to crack it and we got first blood for the challenge.

Update: As mentioned above, here is the way how we can solve this challenge using Hashcat.
