when it says, "he made his email more secure", does this mean, he's added another password to his email account to verify that it's him, and what confuses me is that, has he acctually changed his password?
i did try this, and he has, which is strange, coz it says, "instead of acctually learning the password..."

i really need help with this, i just hope it isn't another bug like mission 4 :!:

This challenge requires some knowledge on javascript injections.
So look up some posts on that, and relate it to this mission.

For all my tryies it gives me out: "Referrer Error: Please Check Referer (Note: This is not a bug)". The most interesting (at least for me) is that when I open HTML code of this page, there's no such a message, on its place there's "Password reminder successfully sent." (like in previuos mission). And that makes me really crazy.
I do my best, still I am a weak beginner. If somebody could make me a hint... Or tell me where to take lessons of that kind of activity.

Hint: the referrer kind of looks at the page the submission came from and if it does not match the page it expects it to come from then it does not allows it to proceed. instead of what u did in mission four, u need to use java script in the url bar in order to change the value of a specific form number. this mean that the reminder is still sent from the original HTS page, but in the new direction.

Javascript is a must for this mission, hence the note that it will require it.

You need to essentially do the same as in mission 4 but without leaving the site. Just read up on some basic javascript and all should become clear.
