About HackTheBox Machines

Hello everyone.
I’ve been looking around HTB folder in ctf section of training repo and i notice that every machine I’ve seen has its OTHERS.lst file, according to the rules in the submission guide i can only upload a gherkin file for a ctf that does not have an external indexed solution on its OTHERS.lst file. At least that’s my interpretation of that rule, am i right about this? That means i can only upload a solution for a HTB machine which has no solutions on its OTHER.lst file? Thanks a lot.

Hey there

Yes, your interpretation is correct, however, you can also upload new challenges, HTB is constantly uploading new machines, so if you manage to solve a recent machine it is also a valid solution, an surely unique.
