Attachement file and open server info is like above. I open the motd file in IDA

In the main function inputs taken by getline. If we want to use overflow memory vulnabities we must to search gets() funcition. Luckly, I found that, in the set_motd func. Also, buffer size is 0x100 which means 256 bit. we can use this memory for jump the given adress.

We must the find address of the flag, so that I found the get_admin_motd function and I saw read_flag function.

Adress is 00000000606063A5
