    I know \xHH is used to print characters with HH being their ASCII value in hexadecimal, in the same way \n does a newline. But I've personally never seen it with more than two characters after the x, and definitely not with anything other than a valid hex value

    Hmmmm looks interesting. So i guess i know what i will be doing this night :)

    @infernalempress Its possible its hexa but well there are Q in there and ) so it doesnt make sense

    @infernalempress agree, tried it, I got some gibberish thing. It was something like (AbC.... )\123.. * ...

    Agree this is purely hex., is something else.. :|

    @infernalempress Its more likely UTF-8

    I personally think that its actually HEX but with one difference and that is that it has some added characters to it so you cant just put it into decoder and decode it that easily because when you delete all the added characters then you actually get valid hex values. Im going to try that

    nope. idk what it is now

    Its python byte representation in hex, could be that some bytes are automatically got converted to ascii chars

    Are they base64'd?

    Idk. I'm passing out 🙁

    @TheCPPanda is right, \xXX means interpret this as the byte 0xXX and the rest were interpreted as printable in ASCII encoding and so were printed as the character they represent.

    @kenogo is right

    So far this is what I got.. :(
    Nah, it is not base64! @Root

    Doesn't look like base64; not ASCII as well :(

    I just used the below code

    It looks like shellcode. Are they hex encoded assembly instructions?

    @Gogeta70 not sure. Still couldn't find it. FML

    @kenogo Ah, I didn't catch the non-hex characters earlier. Very odd. \x* Notation usually refers to hex or octal byte values...
