Me too!!!!! It's 128 bit AES, it'll be tough to BF won't it?

Don, will we get any last minute hints?

Re: RUaNinja? Win Signed Copies of Ninja Hacking Book

Short answer... no.

Long answer... we have more than 3 ninjas, so there will be winners of the signed copies of the book without having to reward some who had hints and some who didn't. So for fairness, there willbe no hints before the end of the month.

On March 1, we'll start giving away little hints to see if some people want to try it without being given the entire thing.

Then we'll do a write-up... maybe even with the help of the first ninja... so we'll take you through the whole process.

Hope that helps,

That's fair, and thanks for giving us a couple of extra days to still figure it out. It's been really challenging and I'm enjoying learning along the way. There's still time for me to figure it out tonight! :)

If this is a hint, don, I'll start putting something together from my notes.  ;)

Re: RUaNinja? Win Signed Copies of Ninja Hacking Book

Like many, I got stuck at the try harder part, but I made it past that part yesterday, though I'm still trying to figure out how to get the data out of the part that I discovered using my powers of observation.

That part was so cool and I didn't know you could do what it takes to get that out of the part you discovered.  (vague enough to not give spoilers)

Hint #1

A docx file is actually a compressed file.


Stay tuned for 2 more hints then writeups from some (maybe all) of the 6 ninjas.
