Hackthissite.org Solutions To All Basic Missions

Basic missions are really easy, with a little knowledge of HTML, javascript, UNIX and SSI all of the missions can be easily cracked. Here are the links to all these solutions.

Basic 1: The Idiot Test
Basic 2: Common sense
Basic 3: Deep into HTML
Basic 4: Changing the scripts
Basic 6: Decrpyt an encryption
Basic 7: Unix
Basic 8: SSI
Basic 9: Not difficult but tricky
Basic 10: Javascript, really?
Basic 11: Is there a solution even?

Note: There is no link to mission 5, as I was too tired to write one for that level. For help regarding mission 5, read the tutorial of mission 4, after all they are pretty similar.

Good luck!!!

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. Lets now move on to the description, and see what it says. Continue reading “Basic 9: Not difficult but tricky”

Basic 7: Unix

Sam still believes saving the password in a file is still the best way to remember it and keep it secured, time to prove him wrong once again. As the description says the password is in the same directory(folder) as we are.

This time Network Security Sam has saved the unencrypted level7 password in an obscurely named file saved in this very directory.
