I've hidden a flag in this file. Can you find it? Forensics is fun.pptm


  1. 1.
    Extract the PowerPoint presentation as a ZIP file, since PowerPoint files are actually ZIPs: unzip Forensics\ is\ fun.pptm
  2. 2.
    Looking through the extracted files, ppt/slideMasters/hidden looks suspicious.
  3. 3.
    Reading that file (cat ppt/slideMasters/hidden) shows Z m x h Z z o g c G l j b 0 N U R n t E M W R f d V 9 r b j B 3 X 3 B w d H N f c l 9 6 M X A 1 f Q.

    We can decode that as base64 using CyberChef to get the flag.
