Look into directory traversal. Then think about what happens when the form gets submitted.

If if it’s more fun for you without them just don’t read them. That’s why they are hidden in the first place.

The user name and password is…… (Spolier Alert)

In the “hidden” “passwordfile”. (btw “hidden” “passwordfile” are not the usename and password. But they should give you a clue as to what to look for!)

even though we got the answer, i still have not tried it. i don’t want to try it, Until i understand how we got to the answer.
so what i’ve figured out thus far is…. that the source code reveals the username and the password , as Maliator has posted,
now looking at the code i believe that there is another HIDDEN field.
and this is the bit that stumps me.
i suppose its either not active or in a different colour
or in a password file which i can’t find.

but even if i find the password, i still don’t know where to enter the final password.
this is where i’m at

for all those searching for the username and password
i’m not going to be a spoiler ever.

but just read the CODE, it’s there in black and white, that’s the easy bit,
the hard bit is finding the final field.
we are given 1 username and 2 passwords, we just don’t know where to enter the 2nd password

look in the code for the username and passwords though , it’s right there

just to vocalize my thoughts
i suppose when we look at…..

we can deduce that the file type is HIDDEN,
so.. logically we want to find it. or Unhide it.

this is where i’m stuck
i tried to find a location or file called extras or ssap.xml
i figured that this file would contain some help on this issue but i can’t find it.

You are close to it, it’s easier then you think. Might want to Google what the type=“hidden” actually means. You shouldn’t have any problem opening the file

i actually got it after about 2hours, without googling it.
i feel stupid for missing that basic point,, but then again i was really really tired.
now level 6…. here we go.

Wow, its right in the post where to look for the file, in at least three places. It’s a bit sad as these aren’t even hints its just telling you what to do. :s

@ COLDIV
hey mate, my forte is not programming, however i understand HTML PHP, CSS, But not C
i understand HTML , at least to the point that is required of my to be able to build a site from dreamweaver.
or to be able to access the text editor in wordpress and make alterations and tests.
and i’m getting pretty good at it.

but i wouldn’t say that i could right HTML straight off the bat into a text file.
as i can with BASIC for example

so , that being said,
i understand the term “HIDDEN” as it pertains to file and folder permisson/attributes.

when discussing HTML is there another meaning to “hidden” when coding

i ask because.
eg. with SQL you can open a C.L.I. and type
–> show databases;
and you get the list of databases(self explanatory)
you then type
–> use database {databasename};
(i would think you would type select)
then if you want to show the table’s within that database
the syntax is
–> desc table;
one would think the syntax would be
–> show table;
since it held true with show databases;

so.. does HIDDEN have another meaning or some significance other than
making me aware that it’s hidden within the code, or hidden at another location

thanks mate

hey Draethel
PS i was tired as hell dude.

and not having a 100% understanding of HTML didn’t help.

here’s some insight, that i’ve learnt……
i sometimes go out to a clients house to troubleshoot a satellite reciever or whatever, and clients come up with the stupidist things.
(at least i used to think that way)
eg….. over the phone , a client was telling me her satellite receiver wont switch on.
i troubleshooted , no luck
i went onsite, and asked her to demonstrate to me. turning on the reciever.
the problem was, she was using the remote from the AIR CONDITIONER, LOL (true story)

so.. is she dumb or stupid.
no … i don’t think it’s fair to say that.
you see, she lacks the understanding. that’s all

and to use Technically inclined foke, we can’t concieve an idea of how that would be possible.

hence to you it was literally telling you what to do.
and from one point off view , i agree with you.
after all, these are beginner levels

but from my view, i knew it had something to do with that but it didn’t click

then after a little sleep and looking at it again, the syntax in the code started to look more familiar
so.. without giving away the answer.

i tried it and after about 5 mins experimentation. i got it.

My forte is.. i don’t give up
if i was able to be patient for 10 years to learn a rubiks cube. you can be damned sure that i’ll figure this out.
LOL

PPS cool bio picture of the simpsons.
i’m a huge simpsons fan

@Maliator.
have you got it yet dude.

you said, “you just don’t know what to look for”
that’s the point….

in a real situation, you don’t get given hints or told what to look for.

but to help you along.

your looking for some place that will tell you , or give you a hint., to the username and password.

YOUR HIINT IS….. SOME PLACE, could be the source code, could be elsewhere

keep thinking, i didn’t get it either , at first

you’ll see what i mean when you get it.
