THE HARD WAY? Basic Mission 1 – “The Idiot Test”

([msg=91278]see THE HARD WAY? Basic Mission 1 – “The Idiot Test”[/msg])

Hello Everyone
I'm still kind of new to this site, although I've tried doing this several times i always seam to fail.

Has anyone ever tried solving level 1 the "hard way"?

What I mean to say is, without looking at the password clearly written in the HTML notes for us. Is there another way to "force" the server tor reveal the password or read through the server files for the password. As if trying to hack a real website. I've been trying to figure out if there is a way to do this, and have also been scouring google, youtube, and other forums for advice but have never found anything.

perhaps is there a way to download the php code for mission 1 from HTS? I'm still stuck on how to do things like this. Another site that would be a good test is http://dollars-bbs.org/ the password is "baccano" - an anime title, however if i was a person who had no knowledge of the password; would there still another way to get it from the server files?

Thx, Ben

Welcome. If you manage to actually hack this site (the last realistic challenge), you get a special notice in the hall of fame. The challenges are there for teaching, so they each show a different way of exploiting code. Once you're in, you can gain access to the files on the server and read them like you would read anything else. I'd assume this would work for basic 1 as well. So yeah, it's possible, but I haven't heard anyone ever read the basic 1 source code to complete the mission.

Didn't have any problems. just wanted to say that I admire the patience of the people helping here despite the negative stigma surrounding people getting into hacking after seeing a bad movie.

I was stuck on this for about 20 minutes. I got frustrated and walked away. I came back about 30 minutes later with a beer and solved it. The moral is...beer is the answer!!

The first basic step in attempting to hack a website is to look at how it works. Do you know how to do this? If not, that would be the first step in completing this challenge.
