This is simulated. You won't actually receive an email (anymore). Just change the value that needs to be changed and you'll be given the information you are after.


I think I have changed the value that needs to be changed and get this message.

Password reminder successfully sent to email@email.com (censored my actual email address)

(Note: If this is not the email address on your HackThisSite profile, no email will actually be sent.)


It is the email I registered with on this website, but no email is actually received. Just wanted to make sure it is working as intended, am I missing something?

Ensure that you changed it. Feel free to pm me your attempt at changing the email value.

I'm not sure if case sensitivity is needed or not, I would also try that.
If you 'did' change the email value to your registered accounts email before sending the query, then something is indeed wrong. Again, feel free to pm me and I can verify if what you are doing it legitimate.

Really? I'm pretty sure I received an email from this mission.

EDIT: Yes, I found the old message it sent me.

Sam,

Here is the password: 'REDACTED'


Was the mission changed recently?

Sometimes it will send it, sometimes it will simply display the password (assuming the email you entered belongs to you). Recently we updated it so it requires the email address that is attached to your account. It may or may not actually send an email.

Brand new to the site and HTML so of course I'm having trouble here. Besides saving the page and editing myself, I'm unsure of how to altar the value that needs changed. Any tips?

Edit: I've figured out how to edit it by looking around on the forums, but I feel like using a program is defeating the purpose of the lesson?

Mission 4 is supposed to be solved using the first method you mentioned. 5 has an extra referer check. For 5, I suggest using inline JavaScript.

Ah, I see. What determines whether it sends the email or not?
