Crack Me 1  - Reverse Engineering Challenge 

For this challenge we can download a compiled C file called "crackme1_1.out". When I execute the file, a password seems to be required to retrieve the flag.

So, I've decided to start my investigation by using the command "strings" which will display the hard-coded text variables in the program, and see if there is something interesting.

Surprisingly, the flag was hard coded!
