NAME: Slippin’ Witty
DESCRIPTION: You’re a detective working in the DoJ tasked with investigating a lawyer by the name of Witold Suzan for possible corruption. You’ve been informed by one of his coworkers that he uses four different social media platforms online. Find all four accounts owned by him.

Hi. I’m Paul Soodman. Did you know that you have rights? Constitution says you do.

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Hmm, I don’t see anything about any tools listed on epieos. I’m sure the constitution says something about your right to bear 0days and cyberstalk your friends/enemies. America, baby! Let’s go searching!

Witold Suzan is a name worth a search, and we’re rewarded with a professional profile.

The resume includes an email, and some other information about our target’s educational and employment history. Also, part 2 of the flag. nam3dFlag

Digging into the email with epieos, we discover that Witold has accounts on Twitter (Flag Part 1: osu{k1d_) and Flickr (Flag Part 3: _b4d). These accounts are easy to find, and we get results by searching the name. Flickr gives very little information, but a screenshot posted to Twitter reveals that there is a Reddit account that Witold has open. It begins with “Anci,”, which is the same as his Twitter handle, so it’s safe to assume that it belongs to our target. Searching Reddit for “AncientFan” and Google for “AncientFan Reddit” gives nothing, so it’s on to another lead for now.

The oldest tweet on the account references even older, likely deleted tweets.

archive.org shows that he has some recorded history – interestingly referencing his “other account,” where he posted about interviewing to become a deputy district attorney.

Woohoo! We’ve found a post in a relevant subreddit by Ancient-Fan-2238.

We’ve got our guy! Combining all 4 parts of the flag is a success! Unfortunately, none of his posts are admissions of guilt. This guy’s good.

Google defends the swiveling roof-mounted scanning electron microscopes on its Street View cars, saying they ‘don’t reveal anything that couldn’t be seen by any pedestrian scanning your house with an electron microscope.’
