This crackme uses a few different techniques to throw you off. Ptrace is NOT one of them ;)

Your job is to spawn the hidden shell inside of it. How you go about doing this is up to you. One rule, no patching ;) Enjoy!

Extra points for whoever tracks down the bugs it exposes in the readelf utility (I didnt have the time to look into it).

$ ./uxtt
Segmentation fault

is this expected?

Yes it is expected :)

Also I would downgrade the difficulty on this crackme to a 3. I must have accidently clicked 4. My apologies.
