I think our best bet is to search for parts.

File: find


There’s find_parts.png file in archive. It should has a flag somewhere. Also worth mentioning is it’s broken.

I’ve found 4 flag parts in below ways:

  1. First part was hidden in the header of the file. Instead of expected IHDR in png file there was SBCTF (I’ve corrected it with hexedit by the way).
  2. Second part was appended as a string at the very end of file. It was {GR4B.
  3. To get the third part I’ve used pngfix to correct CRC. The flag was on the image. parts
  4. Fourth part was hidden in the metadata (Rights field). It had to be retrieved before using pngfix, otherwise it may be lost.
