There are always people in IT who boast about how they can hack and break in to systems – you know the sort, don’t you? It is the ones who are good about it who keep quiet about it – that way they will decrease the chance of their activities being detected.
I recently came across a cyber code challenge that will give many a run for their money. In fact, I am still trying to crack it myself. Perhaps you might want to have a go at it yourself. Be warned though – it isn’t necessarily for the weak-hearted.
Can You Crack It? If your answer immediately is yes you can you either have an over-inflated opinion of your code breaking skills or you have the tenacity to get the job done. Either way you will be presented with something that only a few will get right.
You won’t be able to use the normal hacking tools either. Automated tools like nikto or retina will not work in this case- it is completely up to you to look what is going on, take it in and act on it. Neither are there any hidden fields in the page – so don’t even think about using Achilles to help you out either! So, your first moves as a hacker are taken away from you – you have to rely here on your analytical approach to problems, your innate creativity and your tenacity. If you can look ahead a few moves and see what you could do at that point this code is what you have been waiting for.
