While I am relatively new at "hacking", I am not new at coding and I was wondering if, for any of the missions, it is necessary to download some other program to help me solve the missions.
I have seen a lot of people posting things about firebug, Jack the Ripper, or some other program to change or decode something.
As I would much rather solve these missions with my own code and work, do I HAVE to download any extra program to do them, or would it only just make my life easier?
On a different subject, I solved the first programing mission using java, and come good old (and fast), copy and pasting.
Is it possible to have a program take something off a website as input and display it back onto the website?
(not including something in the source code) And while I am sure there is, what is the best way/language to do this it?
