Hello Every One . Today I would like to talk about a Write Up in (INTERNETWACHE CTF 2016), that me and my friends was Playing as a Team (Hacku) in The last few Days , It was full of fun and cool Tasks, We Enjoyed a lot at IRC freenode.

The CTf was full of Tasks and were in a lot of Categories In :

In This Article , I would like to share some of my solution of one of the Tasks with My resources that I used, and i spent a couple of Hours to solve it .

Al-thought it’s have 90 Point(with high score), But It’s very simple solution (I know That). At least it could help you or Give You a little Tips in another CTF .

So let’s Go and have a Fun …

First , I Thought it’s have Hidden Message , So I made some quickly steps to analyze the Image but found Nothing .
Then i thought to My self (Common it’s Clearly Message says in a challenge way : Can you read the barcodes?) 

So I made a decision To retrieve The BarCode and Opened The Photoshop and Started to cut The Barcode into Pieces .
