LINUX3 – Reading Secrets

This challenge gives us the following text:

Now that you’ve located the file, can you rediscover its contents?

What’s the flag?

In Scope: Logged into the SSH machine.

Flag format: IGE{XX.XX, -XX.XX}

The challenge is asking us to read from a hidden file found in this challenge. To read a dot file that is located in the current directory we can’t just call the file name directly, but instead, we need to prefix it with ./, which refers to the current directory. We will also use the cat command to print the content to the console. This gives us the flag: IGE{28.46, -80.53}
