Cryptography entertains you. Reverse-engineering seems pretty straightforward. And you like to break down information security systems just to build them back, stronger and better. You seem to be the kind of person we look for at Raytheon: a cyber warrior who can help us protect the world’s most critical data from breach, fraud, theft and sabotage. But we want to test you to be sure.

Conquer these challenges and crack the code to gain restricted access to a secret message … just for cyber warriors like you.

Ooooh. This is exciting...

Can you post some U.S. Military recruiting sites as well?

Interesting, first one only took 4 tries, second one is having problems loading, i'm on a super slow connection.

Thanks for posting.

Theres a hidden code, a way to follow the pattern each time until you can guess it the first try. THis thing was written by codemakers!

I got 6 my first try and it's already offering to have me signup to get job postings. But you can bet its built to pull in the true practiced mathematical geniuses and on the surface it is too simple for that.

It finaly loaded, took forever, man i need a faster system and connection.
at first glance i'd say the third word is the key, 'O' will break the code.
now to play and figure out the word.

Ya the first one was to simple, we shall see how much harder it gets.

I beat the first two, but third had me stumped. Havent tried the fourth yet. Pretty fun, thanks for sharing

posted on May, 5 2010 @ 03:20 AM
Wow this is pretty interesting. I got the first one in 3 guesses...

Second one has me stumped. Anyone care to share a little hint?

I will have to try again.

serbsta there is a hint on the page.

I just did the patterns one.. was pretty simple.

But this cipher is still killing me. The clue must be staring at me right in face... but I just don't see it.

posted on May, 5 2010 @ 05:04 AM
I think the cipher may be broken. In that, I can put the same letter in more than once. In itself that doesn't mean it's broken, but the letter greys out at the bottom when you put it in once, but then you put it in somewhere else and then delete it from there, the letter un-greys. Which makes it absolutely useless for determining whether or not the letters can be used more than once - they fix it or take it out completely.

Took me 9 guesses for the coloured marbles. Stumped on the cypher.

I tried the grid too, got really close: 60 squares left and then it went downhill from there.

Got a headache now and my eyes are screwed from staring at a black and white grid for so long.

Apart from that it was entertaining, may have to try again sometime... Preferably with sunglasses on!

3rd one was really easy.. got it on 3rd go "after reading the instructions correctly lol"

Have not tried others as still waiting for registration mail

posted on May, 5 2010 @ 06:39 AM
You don't have to register - there's a little arrow on the corner of the registration thing that rolls up, so you can get rid of it and carry on with the things.

I've given up. The third one is the easiest I think - though the fourth wasn't too bad. I used up two of my guesses on the very first row, so I gave up halfway through that
I only had 2 boxes wrong though

Yeah agreed but registering means keeping track and not having to do the ones over again, plus interested to see what else they will come out with

Of course I flunked!!

There is a Raytheon in Louisville, coincidentally, it is located in the same place many of these FEMA Camp maps show a supposed fema camp here in Louisville.

I had that marble game as a kid and it was my favorite game. It was called Mastermind. I still have it in the closet.

In reading thr postings, some are easy others hard. You are using different parts of your brain. Someone who can do all 4 easily needs to take a proctored mensa test.

I got first in 8, second on first try, third on fourth attempt, gave up on fourth puzzle.

Hey...thanks for making me waste my morning

The first 3 were really easy...the darn logic puzzle stumped of course I had to do it until I finished it. It is like Sodoku on crack...once I figured out what I was supposed to be doing...everything fell into place nicely.

Good puzzles...I didn't sign up...maybe I should because they say they release new ones.

Now back to work...if only I could do logic puzzles all day for my work...that would be nice
