Just saw this posted on yahoo.

Supposedly put up by British intelligence to recruit people.

But its all just HEX.
I can convert Hex to binary and that's about it lol. I was thinking there had to be some sort of pattern, idk.

Figured I would post this for anyone who is bored.

    Well, someone on Yahoo figured it out....

    The answer is Pr0t3ct!on#cyber_security@12*12.2011+

    He posted how he did it, but I can't figure it out. I was thinking it was HEX. But idk.

    I checked his answer and it does indeed work. I wish I knew what he did. Its kind of intriguing.


    He said:

    Link to someone's solution [contains spoilers]

    I can explain stage 1 if you have questions. You have to be able to read the disassembled x86 code, hopefully there is a tutorial out there somewhere. (I got garbage when I tried to decode it myself, must have made an error somewhere)

    The codes in the image are hexadecimal, but you still have to figure out what the numbers represent--in this case, they're in the language that x86 processors read to perform instructions.
