Man. That one threw me for a loop. Though once the pattern was figured out from the ASCII table mentioned before, it was quite easy!

Wow, looking back, I can't believe how simple it is; yet, it took me quite awhile to figure it out. Ol' pen and paper worked for me. I still can't figure out the chart, which is bugging me. I will have to find more resources and get a handle on it. So far, these missions have made feel like a complete genius to an absolute dolt. Fun and challenging. Glad I stumbled on this site.

Ah there was a strategy to find it !

I simply found it by trying differents characters / numbers until I found it.

Interesting challenge.

Hi,
I'm a bit stuck on this mission I've decrypted the password I think it's correct as when I put it in the encrypter I get the same as whats in the source code. Any idea whether I've missed something?

A little stuck I thought I was doing it right but every time I get my password it comes up as error. Just want to check my work and see if I'm doing this right. If someone could PM me that would be great! Thanks y'all!

where it says to put in a string, enter a combination of letters and numbers then when you press the button it encrypts it for you, right?
When you bring up an ascii table it compare the unencrypted password to the encrypted password.
Apply this to security Sam's password but working backwards.

When I enter what I assume to be the correct password into the encrypter, it produces the provided encrypted password. When I enter that same password into the box, it says it's incorrect. What's up with this contradiction? Don't need a hint, just need to know if I'm missing something.


I would suggest figuring out how it encrypts then working backwards and creating a script or executable that does your logic, I made a C based command line tool, but as I said in order to make such a tool, you need to learn the encryption first.

Msg me if you want it xDD

I made one too, just in C for my gentoo box but I will not give it away because how will anyone learn if I did.

hint: include both stdio.h for printf() and string.h for strlen() and use int main (int argc, char * argv) as your main function, figure out the cypher and build an algorithm that cracks it inside your main function:

Code: Select all
#include <stdio.h>
#include <string.h>

int main (int argc, char *argv[]) {
    char * victom = argv[1];
    int ptr = 0;                   // start at beginning of password
    int passwdsz = strlen(victom); // get size of password
    char cracked[passwdsz];
    while(ptr < passwdsz) {
       //FIXME: did you really think I would just give you the cypher, no figure it out yourself and add your code here
       ptr++;
    }
        cracked[ptr] = '\0';
    printf("password is:\033[1;33m %s \033[00m\n", cracked);
    return 0;
}


there, a C wrapper that if you know the cypher can be finished into a working cracker program but until then, it will just fail. If even when you know the cypher you still don't know what to do with the fixme, pm me and I will teach you what to do here, just know though, I will not help with the fixme unless you already know the cypher itself. I will ask for proof that you know.

I have figured out the code, but what about charecters like : and ?
The current encrypted password is 3559i9:?
I know the first 6 are 3436f3
