Dozen Bases

From listening to the audio, I realised that it was DTMF tones immediately. (The website I usually use: was broken, so I had to do it another way, using a weird tool or somethin and then manually correct stuff with audacity, but lets pretend it worked to make things simple) Once we decoded the tones, we got a string of characters, which was 'A288439640A3A140997B8A9945987B8844838B85847B419298407B447B978186437B99454192877B5870655AA5' From the title, we can guess that this is base12, and since there was a gap between each 2 tones, I guessed that it was just each 2 tones was the base12 of a character. I wrote a short python script to convert it to the flag.

line = "A288439640A3A140997B8A9945987B8844838B85847B419298407B447B978186437B99454192877B5870655AA5"
n = 2
x  = [line[i:i+n] for i in range(0, len(line), n)]
o = ""
for i in x:
  o += chr(int(i,12))

Flag: zh3r0{y0u_ju5t_h4cked_1nt0_4_saf3_u51ng_DTMF}
