Dear all, just to inform you... 

I made bad experience this days and want to inform / discuss about. 
Got some flags and putted in @HTB-Portal.  Some days later tried to login and got "You have been banned by HTB-Bot"

First I thougt its maybe a "Challenge" but I think it's not!

You have been  Banned
Banned By: HTB-Bot
Banned Until: 00/00/21 00:00:00 UTC
Reason: Suspicious behaviour - contact [email protected]


SO LESSION LEARNED: Never just take some Flags and enter it at HTB-Portal.

Anyway, the practice for selling just flags is bad for HTB community and at the end of the day also bad for you and me, because learned nothing from it...


Greetings && Happy Hacking!!!

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

No you just spammed alot of HTB flags at the same time continuously. Also if it needs to be stated if any of the challenges requires you to spawn a machine, you should spawn it and leave it running for atleast 30 mins before you add the flags.

The system flags you for adding flags conditionally based on what challenges are there. About what you said, that is also true, HTB is a learning platform and if you are gonna be adding flags for the sake of rank then youre doing it at the wrong place. You should unlock writeups at worse and try solving it yourself

Sorry to hear about ur ban

that's why I'm a big fan of posting writeups and manuals, not only flags here ...

Hehe, I thought about creating a new account but better to wait till the bann is over.
BTW vpn is still working, so i can do things - I just cannot enter flags etc.
