You found a password protected binary on the cyborg relating to its defensive security systems. Find the password and get the shutdown code! You can find it on the shell server at
/home/cyborgsecrets/cyborg-defense or you can download it here.
I wonder if they hardcoded the password string.
The hint indicates that the password is hardcoded into the program. Opening the program with a text editor or disassembler reveals the debug admin password
2manyHacks_Debug_Admin_Test. To get the flag we input this into the program running on the shell, using the command
./cyborg_defence 2manyHacks_Debug_Admin_Test (where the
./cyborg_defence executes the cyborg_defence program).
