MozillaCTF Write-Up Things long forgotten (200)

January 27, 2012

The description to the challenge was given as:

Find something the developer forgot about.

So, we are looking for something that was not meant to be on the website. As we know from experience, typically things aren’t removed from the HTML source but just commented out. So, let’s look at the website’s source – oh what have we here?

<!-- <a href="">Debug User</a> -->

Let’s follow that link. It shows us a page with our user information. Ok, this is old news, we registered with that data. But maybe… oh yeah, the source!
