3301-2015 = 1286... ??? 1+3+8+6 = 17 ... 3+3+0+1 = 7... 17+ 7 = 24... 24 hours in a day??? Latitudes and longitudes...??? 3301 / 7 = 471.571429 (co-ordinates???)


you put 3 instead of 2
Anyway, I agree that about 1033 and 2015 being relevant. In the code there is a java script for the clock that says:

var clock = document.get("1033"), targetDate = new Date(2015, 07, 17, 10, 33, 00); clock. = countdown(targetDate).toString(); setInterval()[ clock. = countdown(targetDate).toString(); ], 1000);

See those numbers, could be a clue...or a key for decoding the message.

Also a script for the countdown was taken from countdownjs.org...

You can see this and more info by going to www.cicada3301.org...

Why not make your own script if you are top under cover agency I wonder?


But puzzles intrigue me so I`ll play along for few hours before going to sleep. The elements I see in the coded message are:

( 7 ), ( + ), ( = ), ( ~ ), ( ? ), ( I ), ( , ), ( : )

The sequence, however, is a complete mystery to me.

1033 is 3301 backwards folks

a reply to: AdmireTheDistance

if you look at the target date in the inspection element it says target date July 17th....not August 17th...im wondering if time zones are playing something or if there is a mistake in there somewhere affecting different target dates.

nvm it was posted above the time zone it is in....

im guessing 1033 is a port

It is friend. Try go check it up. You think fancy graphics means "sophisticated"?


Wow!! Really??? I'm waiting with bated breath! This surely will be earth-shatteringly exciting and deeply meaningful!

I think its a clue. its off by 32 days.

The script of the count down is actually quite complex.

ok we are on the same page then...i noticed it was off and i think you are right...its off intentionally...

in the code has to be a way to contact them otherwise how would they know who solved it....i like this # lol although id never be able to solve this..

just yesterday i picked up an army field manual for cryptography...maybe next year !

Crap i posted too soon and for some reason cant edit.

Add 32 days on to todays date and you end up on 8/17 citizenship day here in the USA.

The title of the site is welcome in german i believe. Ironic

Don't want to kill the buzz, but the general consensus amongs the cicada community is that this is fake .. Mainly due to the fact that there is no PGP and that it was advertised at DefCon (can't confirm that last one since I was not there).

There are people who have dove further and come up with clues....here is one....im looking around and there is quite a bit on it...whether it is solvable or not is another question but there is obviously something there at least a few layers deeper.

Ok so i ran a whois of the domain and came back with an ip. I took the ip and ran it through google earth backwards and it points to coordinates just north of russia in the ocean.

I then ran the date in the _javascript with 32 days added and i found 3 google results only. They are russian train schedule, google reports it exactly as i queried it. I open the page and its 32 days off.

weirdddd with a capital D

Not saying this is not another "game", but the lack of PGP blows the whole deal regarding cicada. I would love this to be the next one believe me

Sorry I just edited my post as you wrote yours...you seem to be right...I don't see how or why they would do this as it not netting money and as far as PGP you are referring to encryption? If you are I don't see why that matters since no one said this has to necessarily be a nsa recruting tool...unless I totally misunderstood what you meant by that.

It probably is some college dudes at MIT or some crap who put it together to to let others join their group....but the more I look at it it looks like they just keep dropping little hints that are solvable but it never leads to solving the main puzzle.

Im going back to drinking beer now haha

I am referring to the PGP because cicada verifies every message with their PGP key. This is one of the cardinal rules of the puzzle. If there is no PGP it is fake.


Edit: And the key is never (at least from what I remember) hidden. It is in plain sight so that you can verify the message.

Ah I get what you are saying now....totally makes sense...you are correct...on the wiki page it brought that up cause so many were copying them, even some for illegal activity allegedly. Got ya...and thx for that.

Disregard everything ive said in this entire thread except the beer drinking part.
