HACKTHISSITE.ORG | Basic 11: Is there a solution even?

This mission is known as one of the very unsolvable missions throughout the Hackthissite’s forum. Many have tried to solve it by searching hints and using them, but this mission still is a mystery for most of them. The very beginning intro of this mission can be blamed for this, as it points us in unknown direction.

Sam decided to make a music site. Unfortunately he does not understand Apache. This mission is a bit harder than the other basics.

Now, when we open the mission all we receive are some similar messages like these, every time we refresh the page a new line shows up.

Is Your Password Secure Enough?

We live in a password-driven world, weather it be your email account on Gmail or Facebook account, where words between 6 and 20 character are the difference makers in whether you’re able to access your data, communicate with friends, make your online purchases or get bankrupt. The problem is that passwords should be different everywhere when you use them, and that can make it difficult to remember them all. And, if a password is truly strong, that makes it even more difficult.

HACKTHISSITE.ORG | Basic 10: Javascript, really?

This level does seems to be lot tougher than the previous levels as it does not tell us what we need to do. Yes, the intro does tells us that knowledge of javascript might be helpful, but still no clue, how?

This time Sam used a more temporary and “hidden” approach to authenticating users, but he didn’t think about whether or not those users knew their way around javascript…

Well, we can give a try using all the tricks we have learnt by now, but none of them seems to be working. The task is to think of something that is temporary and hidden from users. Haven’t figured it out by now?

HACKTHISSITE.ORG | Basic 9: Not difficult but tricky

The password is again hidden in an unknown file. However, the script that was previously used to find it has some limitations. Requirements: Knowledge of SSI, unix directory structure.

The intro for level9 points us towards using SSI and UNIX commands and its directory structure. Well, here we get our first clue. Let us now move on to the description, and see what it says.

SSI stands for server side includes. These are dynamic HTML commands executed by the server and not the browser. As the intro of the mission already pointed us to SSI this mission would be simple now.

The password is yet again hidden in an unknown file. Sam’s daughter has begun learning PHP, and has a small script to demonstrate her knowledge. Requirements: Knowledge of SSI (dynamic html executed by the server, rather than the browser).

Furthermore when we open the mission we see a story, somewhat like level7, the password being hidden in a file and we being provided with the file directory. All we are left to do is find the file name.
