Basic Mission 1 – “The Idiot Test”

Requirements:
Basic understanding of HTML and browser functions.


If you are reading this then you are likely new to HackThisSite (HTS). Let me be the first to welcome you! Many of you are here to wishing to either learn, or to test your current knowledge of hacking/security. Learning the art of hacking takes a lot of work, patience, and determination. It will not happen overnight, and if you continue down this road, will spend the next several years honing your skills. Let’s begin.

The goal of nearly every mission on HTS is to find a password through exploitation. If you tried to enter your login password for Basic 1, slow down. Each mission has a description and a clue that will help direct you on exploiting the login prompt (make sure to read the clues carefully). For Basic 1, knowledge of Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML) is required. HTML is the main markup language for creating web pages and other information displayed in a web browser. You can easily view this code for any given webpage using your browser (ahem).

If you are already lost or confused it’s time to do some research and practice your Googlefu! Practice writing a couple of basic web pages. Remember, the goal is not to get the mission completion points, the goal is to learn.

Good luck!

Did you put your account password into the field? Or the mission password? Make sure you didn't add any extra spaces or quote marks.

Look for anything that sticks out. If you don't know HTML it's going to be difficult to make sense of anything. So go learn HTML. Even if you don't know it, there are some things that should make sense regardless.
Assume that everything I say is or could be a lie.

I'm having the exact same problem! The basic "Idiot Test" I've tried about 5 times. I've entered in my password, didn't work. Tried it again, making sure I did it right. Didn't work. Changed my password twice, still doesn't work! I can't even get into the basic first mission and it's driving me crazy. Any thoughts on what the hell could be going on??

Thanks.

It is the mission, and the password isn't your password. It requires you to find a password.
