This repository contains an archive of CTF challenges I developed in the last few years for various CTFs organized by my team – Dragon Sector. They are mostly software exploitation tasks with varying difficulty levels, for the x86/x64 architectures and Windows/Linux operating systems. Each subdirectory contains basic task information, original description, solution in the form of a short summary or a few slides from the post-CTF presentation, exploit code and optionally links to external solutions.
The challenges are as follows:

Running the tasks
For exploitation problems, if the program listens on a port by default, leave it running and connect to the port to interact with the task. If it reads and writes to/from
stdout, you should bind it to a TCP port of your choice (e.g. with
socat on Linux, and the enclosed
AppJailLauncher.exe tool on Windows), and connect to it to exploit the vulnerabilities. The goal is to obtain the contents of the flag.txt (or similar) file in the task's current directory.
For reverse-engineering problems, the goal is to extract the flag from the provided executable file.
