Gchqs Crack The Code Challange


Recommended Posts

Hi Morfir,

Keep at it! The challenge is what makes it fun! Start by converting the 'code' to ASCII, then you'll find that working out the solution becomes more obvious. I found a signature that led me to the answer.

I found it a bit of a joke, I never cracked any code, fired up maltego, ran some transforms on the site, and found www.canyoucrackit.co.uk/soyoudidit.asp (not to be a spoiler but ya)

You would think that after entering the correct password you would get a cookie to allow only the person that entered that correct password to be able to access that portion of the site (for say a limited amount of time), but no. It was a good idea but just seemed like kind of a fail on the overall design. Why would a hacker crack a code when he finds all the information needed in the information gathering portion of his research. Its like trying to crack a WPA key for a business when they have a bill board outside with the password on it. Good idea, and cracking challenges are fun, but its always a good idea to get some information on the entire infrastructure first. :)
