Cicada 3301 is often referred to as the internet’s most elaborate and mysterious puzzle, one that often leaves cryptoanalysts and hackers scratching their heads. A sort of cross between a contest, job interview and highly complex puzzle, Cicada 3301 recurs each year, but no one knows who is behind it or what prize awaits the person who solves it. The first internet puzzle appeared online on January 5,... During the first year, Cicada 3301 started with a picture on 4Chan, along with the message: “Hello. Find it, and it will lead you on the road to finding us. We look forward to meeting the few that will make it all the way through. ” The message was simply signed 3301. The ensuing puzzle provided focused heavily on data security, cryptography and steganography. The clues were scattered in locations all over the world – from the US to France and Poland, within various forms of communication including the internet, telephone, bootable Linux CDs, digital images, and physical paper signs. Swedish computer analyst and self-confessed ‘IT freak’ Joel Eriksson is one of the very few people who cracked the puzzle but never got to find out what was at the end of it all. When he saw the first image that was posted along with the message in 2012, he immediately recognized it as an example of digital steganography, which is the concealment of secret information within a digital file.
The worlds most well-known torrent site the Pirate Bay is back, seven weeks after a police raid knocked it offline. The portal has been brought back to life slightly earlier than the February 1st date shown on a countdown clock that was put up on Tuesday. It appears that the data that was present when the site went down is still in place now, though theres been no official confirmation from the Pirate Bay team itself. TorrentFreak reports that internal disagreements may have led to some mods and admins being locked out of the new site. Those in charge of the relaunched Pirate Bay are said to be keen to run a tighter, more streamlined operation thats less easy to knock offline and these changes have caused conflicts with many of the sites original members.
