10 - Chest Can you find the flag inside of the chest?
chest Approach —
Looking at the chest, it appears to be an ELF executable. However, opening the executalbe in a text editoring, I was able to get the entire string table and just copy and paste that out. I replaced the spaces with newlines and opened in excel. Sorting the file made it really easy to search.
Looking at the flags, there are plenty of red herrings in there, but they are pretty obvious. They have pirate themed text in them:
