This one is very interesting. Half of some letters and numbers are included in here. Hey Ian! What do those two clues at the bottom mean? Good luck to all!

Looks like if you cut and paste the various sections together in the right order, all the half-letters will come together. But alas, I need to get ready for work. Good luck everybody. And congrats on that last one, Kat.

Thanks, Wintermute, and that sounds like a good idea! Hummm, print, cut and paste, I suppose....

It seems like there are also some mirrorred letters put in throughout, maybe that has some link to the positioning of each code section.

There are two different colors, white and light blue, some backwards, some in parts and others whole. I have each individual piece separate in photoshop but it is still difficult to make sense trying to put them together.

Keep in mind that some might be upside down. That is, the first letter could be a lower-case "Q", the second full letter could be a "u" and so on.

Have fun guys. I'll look in, but I'm going to sit this one out for the most part.

Here's my version of the unscrambled slices:



Here's my transcription; it looks like all the blue letters are reversed:


WHITE:
-v-v-3-1-x- 3-1-z-n-
i-v-n-p-k- m-b-s-g-n
-i-a-h-8-2 -6-f-5-d-x
letters: abdfghikmnpsvxz123568

BLUE:
d-w-w-v-j-z -h-s-x-b
-e-m-g-x-o -e-l-e-y-
o-n-r-f-t- h-x-u-q-s-
letters: bdefghjlmnoqrstuvxywz


Note that the white and blue text both use exactly 21 different letters, and there's some overlap...

I got the same thing Ian did:





Mine's a lot more ragged, though...lol. Forward, backward and numbers....argh!

Got it. The decrypted text was something like:


counterfeit backdoor ---------- installed throughout gevernment


using two interleaved polyalphabet ciphers. I remembered mr.old.school's thread from earlier in the year:

FBI Fears Chinese Hackers and/or Government Agents Have Back Door Into US Government & Military Computer Networks

So:

THREAD ID: 350381
ANSWER: "counterfeit cisco routers"

Just to clarify, the decrypted text is:


counterfeit backdoor stealthily installed throughout government


I went back and finished it off, in case the exact answer is important to the final puzzle...
