DECRYPTS OF THE KRYPT3IA KRYPTOS CRYPTEX CHALLENGE:

No one managed to crack the cipher it seems so here is the solution for it and how it was made. As you can see the image that I used as a logo for this contest was not the cipher itself. However, it did hold a clue, in fact one of the two keys to the initial cipher was embedded within the image.

The image itself is a rendering of the last part of the KRYPTOS art piece at CIA HQ. In the text in white within the image above had you Googled, you would have come up with “BERLIN” This was key one to the initial cipher. The rest is below.

THE SOLUTION:

Four Square Cipher
Key1 CONDOR
Key2 BERLIN

Cipher Text Decrypt:

Condor is an amateur Hes lost unpredictable perhaps even sentimental He could fool a professional Not deliberately but precisely because he is lost doesnt know what to do Unlike Wicks who has always been entirely predictable

go to <REDACTED DARKNET ADDRESS> slash condor dot html locate hidden instructions and follow them

CIPHER 2:

Homophonic Cipher

MUL: 47

ROT 62

CIPHER TEXT:

59 10 56 10 90 55 89 80 02 92 74 65 45 16 28 44 31 24 62 17 61 80 17 65 63 33 95 34 79 89 64 16 57 55 31 78 51 77 74 74 07 78 56 16 61 05 24 51 23 90 02 81 64 23 44 24 98 55 45 20 53 88 27 97 10 39 29 90 02 11 74 10 84 35 01 03 20 90 61 51 48 16 18 70 63 83 44 91 33 69 36 33 37 16 28 50 14 90 09 17 86 20 57 09 41 02 16 28 03 26 41 97 09 77 98 09 63 37 63 28 65 35 92 99 33 71 84 13 82 57 44 63 18 57 08 37 17 08 06 83

Eugene and the DoD

leave a comment »

Da! Let me share you this blog on Eugene! Look, this whole kerfuffle over Eugene and the DoD has reached epic douchery in the news and now with the Putin administration threating “actions” against the US if they somehow embargo Eugene’s business. Well, let me first start with this little ditty below.. Go ahead, read it…

Ok done? Yeah, Eugene was in the KGB school and he worked for the GRU too according to the Wiki page here. What this means is that Eugene is a “former” made man of the KGB and Military Intelligence apparatus in Russia. He lived in the times when it was the Soviet Union and at the height of the times where the cold war was in a deep freeze. Fuck, just go watch The Amerikans and then come back… I will be waiting…

Ok watched them all have we? So now you know how it was to live in the 80’s huh? Well there you have it. Anyway, Eugene was a member of the organizations that have recently hacked us. What? You are saying it’s the FSB now and it isn’t the KGB?

Fuck you.

FSB is KGB with different letters at the front now ok? If you actually read up a bit you will see that Putin actually gave back the powers that the KGB had back in the day recently so once again they are functioning much like the old bad days as the KGB. Putin as well is an old school KGB man who has used all kinds of KGB fuckery to get where he is and stay there so once again, you say FSB, I say; Fuck. You.

Right, so now back to the present unpleasantness, it seems that Eugene is now offering a code evaluation by anyone who wants to (specifically the DoD) so pretty pretty please buy our shit? Look, it’s not about the code, we don’t necessarily think there are backdoor’s in the product now. No, what the worry is consists of that close snookums relationship Eugene had with the TWO entities that just hacked our election in 2016. Come on people, no one leaves the KGB and certainly NO ONE says NO to Putin right?

Imagine that Eugene’s software is clean as a whistle.

Now imagine that it is sitting on many USGOV and MIL systems.

Now imagine that all that telemetry from those systems is going to RUSSIA.

Then alternatively consider that with all those systems running Eugene’s product, how easy it would be to say, inject a malware or a protocol into all of it to do… “Things”

Think about that hacker kids.

Think about that you spies too.

You all see where I am going with this right? Now of course you could maybe do that with another vendor too but how much more work would it be to do that with Symantec? What I am saying is that Eugene lives in Russia, his assets are there, his LIFE is there and if Putin were to sidle up and say “do this thing” what choice would he have? JESUS FUCK PEOPLE! You know who the next randomly dead Russian would be right Eugene?

So, all this fuckery around the code and exploits etc… Stop. It’s really about access and what could happen in a place where we have seen pretty nakedly what Putin wants and does. So no, the DoD should not have Kaspersky products on their shit. I would be really surprised if they did given where it is made and managed… But then again, I think about all those SF86’s and China and… Fuck….

So there you have it. We are in another hot cold war with a Putichurian candidate in office. Do you really think we need the trifecta of Eugene’s access potential to be expanded to the military?

Yeah neither do I.

K.
