>posts random ass website with "whats the phrase" in red letters
>gives no other hints as to what the phrase is
you could just post whatevers behind the password, or give us the password, we aren't all master hackers if you didn't know
OP said its fake. I am intrigued. We cannot crack cryptography here, only verify it.... but we would just verify our guesses by submitting them and seeing if they're correct... So that string must not be the hashed passphrase
WHAT WE HAVE SO FAR
'shift me to E'
shift me to E could mean like >>680077210 said, binary shifting, or it could literally mean something like A->E. And then we have 15
Still confused, we are making progress, but still we are lost.
OP here, I am watching your progress, and you are closer than you think.
The term 'phrase' is a bit misguiding, as it is really one string of characters...
To help you guys out, I have uploaded a clue at ~hidden / hint.png
WHAT WE HAVE SO FAR
'shift me to E'
~hidden / hint.png
Found something interesting, there used to exist a red train named the "ae 415" This matches most of the info we've found except for the number 4, and parallels with the a->e theory, although i tried ae 415 as the code and it doesnt work.
Found something. Can't tell what's going on because on mobile, but normally if a page doesn't exist it displays it's 404 or whatever shit. If you go to ~hidden/b/ it redirects back, so something has to be there and there has to be a reason why it's doing that?
it is not, it is just Chrome's request module; whoever tried /b/ just got lucky, it is b for "begin." you go to ~hidden/b and it sends you to ~hidden/b/, then to /b/e/, then /b/e/g/, etc. to ~hidden/b/e/g/i/n/ which sends you to / which sends you back to /~hidden/ (just throws you around for 5 redirects before sending you back to login)
Which is unsurprising. I anticipated (and OP confirmed) that the phrase will not be English words. Well, it might be. But it will be a string, we will calculate it through bit shifting or some other cryptographic means, I don't know shit about that, I was hoping anyone else on this entire board might be able to help, I will continue studying until I find something or someone else does.
My suspicions where confirmed, there is an index file at /b /b/e /b/e/g b/e/g/I b/e/g/I/n which I assume they control redirect. they could be conditional and do other things based on some shit, but how would you pass it stuff?
Likely it will be a simple answer like "orange" or some other information we had from the get go (e.g. "zcoj9yv5qpcrgb0cws4jhmct0zm5s8bom29ityoyw4luzu1qpnfn6y", which it is not by the way) but it will be some complicated shit until we decipher it.
With a get operator, ?. As in the homepage, ?key=. These are all PHP scripts.
How did you find the index.php? Just checking manually? Smart, but it provides no response data. You could try passing it things but it doesn't seem to give you anything except a command to redirect.
I did not imagine so, I was just giving an example. I assumed it could be a dictionary word because you said we had it the whole time though I did/do not expect it to be
Probably. Good point.
Yeah, /b/index.php is the same as /b/. The only reason you get a page at /b/ (or /anything/, instead of /directory/file.ext) is because there's an index.php or default.php. These bitches just send us to the /b/e/g/i/n/ chain. They seem genuinely useless though it was a good catch, don't not poke around
Considering that we now know that all of the characters will be the same case, this is likely true. It may, however, imply that all of the letters are alphabetical, as non-alphabetical characters do not technically have a "case" per se.
Shockingly enough, C2HPZNQGBWUGDG8GRQ== was not the answer. Yeah, more likely we're talking bit shifting, not the shift key
the smartfags in this thread don't know shit about encoding
Right now, we need to know how to shift that base64 string to E. I don't know what that means let alone how to begin doing it. But my grasp on this particular area of computer science is really, really shit
You fuckin autists. We don't need to do jack shit with the images when we have two strings, one of which is base64 encoded giving us an explicit mathematical instruction. We just don't know how to interpret it or begin solving this step of the problem which is why we need some bitches in here that do
maybe it has something with the shadow type thing that covers up 50% of the train, just an idea
the motherfucker just liked scribblenaut (which was a great game) and found a picture of the train from it stop being morons, he was likely just indicating a 3-character string, doesn't matter, we're tackling this in order of usefulness, a train is less useful than a base64 string telling us to shift
Any resources to help me learn this?
>look through thread
>dont get any of it
>head now hurts
So we disregard the train even harder right now. Come back to it. It's too vague. I'd really like an actual smart person to stumble in here instead of my dumb ass, but clearly that is not happening.
Its deff got to be something with the train pic
I like sugar, and I like tea
But I don't like niggers...no siree!
There's two known things that'll make me puke
And that's a hog eatin' slop, and a big, black spook!
It's a red train from Scribblenauts
ITS FUCKING CLUE GLUE LEAVE THE TRAIN ALONE, IT COMES SECOND AFTER WE FIGURE THE NEXT STEP OUT, YOU DONT GO FROM FUCKIN BASE64 STRINGS T THE GOD DAMN TRAIN YOU CUNT
YES BUT ITS NOT THE NEXT STEP
it is just a standard thing it goes in a meta or head tag its just bullshit for a webpage its not a clue
Stop looking in the source. The source has two things: A text box, and a paragraph telling you INCORRECT. You type something, click the button, and it plugs your response INTO THE URL and your response is validated server-side. The rest of the pages don't produce responses. We are past that stage currently, except maybe trying to get info from /b/e/g/i/n
Did this: 01000001 >> 01000101 using an online java ide bc im not at main computer.
That gives 131072, which is hexadecimal for 000100110001000001110010, which when converted into a string results in a lowercase r.
Linked to the walking dead? /b/oard and /g/l/e/n. The letter A we found earlier is on the back of a red train found in an episode.
