Bandit.Lvl13 – data hexdump

This is the blog post series related to Bandit Wargame from OverTheWire community. It is my attempt to challenge myself and play some Wargames as suggested by CTF Field Guide.

Previous challenge – Lvl12 – data rotated by 13

Goal

The password for the next level is stored in the file data.txt, which is a hexdump of a file that has been repeatedly compressed. For this level it may be useful to create a directory under /tmp in which you can work using mkdir. For example: mkdir /tmp/myname123. Then copy the datafile using cp, and rename it using mv (read the manpages!)
