Cyber Detective CTF is an OSINT-focussed CTF created by the Cyber Society at Cardiff University.

In this article we are going to quickly solve the CyberSoc CTF — General Knowledge challenges. These are challenges for n00bs so let’s get into it.


So, we have a hint i.e. OSINT, so we know what the complete abbreviation of OSINT really is.


We have been emphasizing this a lot everywhere i.e. use HTTPS rather than HTTP. So, we definitely know what HTTPS stands for.


Port 80 is for HTTP so what is the port for HTTPS?


There have been times when we have seen very SLOW animals on National Geographic. Might be there was a attack for APACHE servers as well?


This has to do everything with WiFi. There were time when it was possible to sniff into the wireless traffic due to WEP but later on this was matured and WPA came into being. What do you have to say for the same?


There is only one and the most famous and most popular Network Protocol Analyzer.


There is a really good and old website for checking our wireless access points around the globe and all it does it shows you with the neat and clean graph. You feel WIGGLE WIGGLE.


Well, most of the people in IT specially developers confuse this with encryption and you can find it in BASIC AUTH.


Google has Google Maps but does it have any other tool to have a good street view?


This looks something like a code which came into limelight in 1837.
