Stage 2 “Search”, misc, 40pts

There’s something about this domain… search.icec.tf, I don’t see anything, but maybe its all about the conTEXT.

My Solution

Surfing http://search.icec.tf/ returns a ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED. I tried using proxies, Tried surfing through Iceland VPN, Tor, nothing. Something wrong with the DNS configuration? conTEXT may refer to the TXT entry - a good place to hide a flag.


$ dig search.icec.tf ANY

;; ANSWER SECTION:
search.icec.tf.		3788	IN	HINFO	"Please stop asking for ANY" "See draft-ietf-dnsop-refuse-any"

Since I can’t ask for ANY I’ll have to ask for TXT:


dig search.icec.tf TXT
