    "hacking" challenge

    Mods: nothing against the rules here

    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)

    I had to turn my sound off.

    Number one was so easy it hurt. "Durrr...viewing the source with frames is harrrddd". When I got to number two and saw all of the busywork needed to get the answer (by viewing the source, anyway. If there's another way I missed it.), I stopped.

    I'm too lazy to guess #5. What's the password.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    You must be a very lazy person...I'll just give you a hint. It tells you the answer on the page. Try some of the choices it gives you.

    Never mind. Figured it out before you posted. Now I'm stuck on level 9.

    Number 2 was easy - I just put in a debug statement document.write(de11) and it gave the answer - it's 12358 and it does not change -- the numbers stand for the positions to click so just click the entire top row and the middle buttons of the following 2 rows.

    Number 3 seems like some work -- so i didn't even bother.

    A lot of these I just skipped past the password and got the next level's address from the code.

    (BTW, ken, most of the busywork isn't that bad... substring(2,3) is almost always letter c, substring (3,4) is d, etc...)

    I'm on level 9... this is a lot of fun.

    well, now that there are people past level 8...how do you save the flash animation...and if there is something exceedingly special that I have to do to get it, how do I get to the source code for it? Just looking for a hint... I got this far without knowing Java...just got the document.write ( ) tip from someone.

    without knowing what im doing...have you tried on number three getting the name of the user/pass page and then typing in like "admin" or "harry" or somthing for user?

    I think try2hack is pretty easy. Hackerslab.org is fun.
