  1. http://scifi.pages.at/hackits/ has a series of tests or levels to see how good your logic or knowledge with the web is.

    No, it's nothing bad, I know it has the word hackits in it but it's nothing bad.

    What it is is a site that tests how much you can figure out or "hack" on the site. You try to figure out the passwords that are in the source code. There are a series of levels, and this site made this area for that reason, to try to "hack" your way to the top.

    Give it a try, it's very addicting!

    All I can say is you can start but looking at the source and studying it. The first 3 have the passwords unencrypted for the most part... 4 has encryption in ASCII, and 5 I'm workin' on.

    Wow you guys are pretty good... well I need help on 8... any pointers?

    Hey Xtr, Think of other ways to get around the password. IE try to find the end page without putting in the password. Has nothing to do with source code.

    XtR-X Newcomer, in training Topic Starter Posts: 1,040

    Yeah, that's easy. But I mean... what's the point of "hacking" the password out if you just want to go to the next page?

    That's why I'm working for the passwords.

    Easiest way to get through it is using Konqueror browser for Linux

    OK Xtr... youve got a point. So i went back... and figured out the answer to #8. I now know the prompt password. It is more satisfying that way. Good call.

    I am really stuck here, which is annoying. I'm stuck on number 7, and fast running out of ideas.

    Having not done this sort of thing much before, It's quite a learning curve!

    I'm using mozilla 1.6, and I "saved target as" .txt, thus giving me source.

    Problem is, the only part of the source related to the password that I have is

    "<!--
    var passwort, i;

    //-->"

    Which doesn't say a lot other than that there are two variables called "passwort", and "i"

    could somebody give me a push in the right direction?

    AH! Thankyou so much :D

    I missed that all important line referencing ****.**

    Now I can carry on again.

    I say again, thanks!

    I did this a long time ago; isn't there 13 levels? I got to 11 and then it had matrices and junk which I can do but it would take a little effort and I was bored of it :D

    I didn't think they were very hard, but that's just me :D
  23. lalaji

    lalaji Newcomer, in training Posts: 155

    there are definitely more than 13 levels. 1-13 are rather easy... but it now has 16 levels. Why not go back and see if you are still up to par? :p

    ok Im on level11 and could defently do it, because its just previous levels into 1 level [it asks for 5 passwords]...but i dont want to spend this long doing it. Some of the levels are getting really dumb with riddles and such. Your ment to actually "hack" [retreive the password...].....

    TIP FOR #10:
    Check your browsers cache
