The Investigation

Post by Jason Whittaker on 15th March 2013, 7:24 pm

Some of you have been around the chat over the last week and may know that Monty and myself were sent here to take care of an investigation for the NSA. It is believed that some criminals are among us and we were sent here to figure out who. I can't say much more than that for security reasons but I did come across a weird code that I hope you guys can help us decode as we move forward in the investigation.

Would the portion of the code after the comma be alphabetic position reversal? For instance, if it says "Z" in the code, it means "A"; "Y" means "B", and so on.

So what have you guys thought of so far? Is there any codes or anything in AIO that match up with this?

So, I'm sot sure about the first part, but I was looking at the second part and here's what I observed: znk is a three letter word, and k seems to be a common letter in the second part, so maybe k = e?

I was just talking about the second part. I have no idea about the first part. I'm also assuming that if k=e, then z=t and n=h.

cryptogram solvers are awesome. The answer is: "Investigate the election teams" So you were right, Marvin. Smile

The question is, what does the first part mean? scratch Is there a code from that AIO episode about the Israelites? I can't remember.

I believe that may be the cipher that goes with it. Smile

My sources tell me that the first half of the code is based on some algorithms that pick different letters based on a few factors.

Sadly I know nothing about algorithms.

The first part could be
ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ123456789
ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
and they moved the alphabet over E.G. 5 spaces, so in that case, A would be F, B would be G, and Y would be 4, etc.

However, this seems unlikely, owing to the double letters in the message, PP, XX, etc. I suspect it may be a rotating cypher, as this is one of the few cyphers to produce double letters. And with numbers thrown in to make it harder.

As best I can figure, the first M is a T.

I can't share much, but I can say, it's a big deal. A real big deal.

I sent the coded message to one of my friends in Homeland Security and he gave me this: To find the culprits behind the hacking, investigate the election teams. Hope you guys can use this info. Monty Whittaker out.

Yeah, one thing I hate about Forumotion is that it isn't very secure. It's not too hard to break in, if you're smart.

There've been reports of people hacking sites that people have worked years on. We believe CC is next.

That's why the NSA hopes to avoid it this time.
