    Ok i have found a way to break level 9..

    The password in 7 char long it can hvae numbers from 1 to 9 and the characters ABC. and it compulsorily needs to have an "AB" string in the password..

    That makes the possibilities 1492992 combinations almost 1.5 millions.. I have created a program to generate all this and try brute force.. untill a valid non 404 page is opened.. I cannot run this here since i use dial up.. Does any one having broad band intrested in cracking this with me by running my program...


    If checking ten password takes 2 second.. then considering that if the last combination is the actual password it will take around 70 to 80 hours to crack it... But i think the password might be some where in between.. so it will take around 10 to 15 hours....

    Any one interested..... we can even discuss ways to make this brute fore better.

    And i decompiled the .class file. but it does not have the password.. Thats the trick in the security there.. The password is actually an html file on the server.. if right password is AB12345 then a file http://homepage.eircom.net/~level12/AB12345.html will exist on the server...

And with the rest of them i didn't find most of the passwords i just found the next site that would give me the next level. Ohh well though level 8 is level 9. BTW i started when i got home from work at 5:30am and it's now 6:47am o i am going to go and get some sleep.

    I'm also on level 9...

    I've decompiled the .class files and reached the same conclusion as vasanth.
    I have a broadband connection so send me the link files and I'll scan for the correct page.

    This is kinda interesting, although it's fairly easy up until level 8...which is where I got stuck. I don't know how to save the file I need...(you'll see when you get there, don't want to spoil anything)
