# Problem

Description: I created a program for an unsolveable equation system. My friend somehow forced it to solve the equations. Can you tell me how he did it?

(exp60, solved by 252)

Service: 188.166.133.53:12049

# Solution

Interacting with the server, we see the following:

``````\$ nc 188.166.133.53 12049
Solve the following equations:
X > 1337
X * 7 + 4 = 1337
Enter the solution X: 190
You entered: 190
190 is not bigger than 1337
WRONG!!!
Go to school and learn some math!

I tried a couple of overflow/underflow things but I couldn’t get it right. So I bruteforced it instead with this C program:

``````#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdint.h>

int test(int32_t a) {
return ((a*7+4) == 1337);
}

void main() {
int i = 0;
while(++i != 0) {
if (test(i)) {
printf("found it: %d\n", i);
}
}

printf("done. %d\n", i);
}
``````
``````\$ ./crack
found it: 613566947

\$ nc 188.166.133.53 12049
Solve the following equations:
X > 1337
X * 7 + 4 = 1337
Enter the solution X: 613566947
You entered: 613566947
613566947 is bigger than 1337
1337 is equal to 1337
Well done!
