passwd decoding problem

Recommended Posts

phew

hi!

password encoded: 77-106-113-117-116

password plaintext: Hallo

each number stands for a char written in decimal.

if its an odd number, then the decimal must be decreased by 5 and then be translated from dec to chr so you get the password plain letter.

77 / 2 == 38.5 (odd) => 77 - 5 = 72 => decimal: 72 == char: H

if its an even numer, then the decimal must be decreased by 9 and then be translated from dec to chr so you get the password plain letter.

106 / 2 == 53 (even) => 106 - 9 = 97 => decimal: 97 == char: a

now i am using Mod($decimal_value, 2) to find out if the decimal is even or odd, but somehow my way of decoding doesn't work properly.

here is my code:

decodepw("77-106-113-117-116")

Func decodepw($pass)
    $passwd = StringSplit($pass, "-", 0)
    For $i = 1 To $passwd[0]
        MsgBox(0, "", $passwd[$i])
        $x = Mod($passwd[$i], 2)
        If ($x = 0) Then
            MsgBox(0, "", Chr($passwd[$i] - 9))
        Else
            MsgBox(0, "", Chr($passwd[$i] - 5))
        EndIf
    Next
EndFunc

decoding with my code gives out smtn like: Halp<strange sign>

should be: Hallo

what am i doing wrong?

EDIT: "odd" and "even" might be the wrong words, well if Mod() returns 0 then -9 if it returns 1 then -5 =) sorry for my bad english

greetings

You're trying to subtract a string value from an integer.

MsgBox(0, 0, decodepw("77-106-113-117-116"))

Func decodepw($pass)
    Local $passwd = StringSplit($pass, "-", 0)
    Local $s_hold = ""
    For $i = 1 To $passwd[0]
        If Mod($passwd[$i], 2) Then
            $s_hold &= Chr(Int($passwd[$i]) - 5)
        Else
            $s_hold &= Chr(Int($passwd[$i]) - 9)
        EndIf
    Next
    Return $s_hold
EndFunc

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

        Else
            MsgBox(0, "", Chr(Int($passwd[$i]) - 5))
        EndIf
    Next
EndFunc

doesn't work either, your code also returns "Halpk" instead of "Hallo" for me

doesn't work either, your code also returns "Halpk" instead of "Hallo" for me

That's because "77-106-113-113-120" is "Hallo" and "77-106-113-117-116" is... "Halpk" Edited by trancexx

mhh strange, so it's encoded in some other way.

a friend of mine made me a msl script that decodes correctly, perhaps one of you knows msl and can figure out what i'm doing wrong by then:

alias dc {
  var %char 0
  var %i 1
  var %output ""
  while ($gettok($1-,%i,45)) {
    set %char $gettok($1-,%i,45)
    if ($calc(%i % 2) == 0) { set %output $+(%output, $chr($calc(%char - 9))) } 
    if ($calc(%i % 2) == 1) { set %output $+(%output, $chr($calc(%char - 5))) }
    inc %i
  }
  echo $active %output
}

test passwords:

What language is that?

Anyway, it's not using the decimal of the char to figure out the mod... it's using the loop number.

MsgBox(0, 0, decodepw("77-106-113-117-116"))
#cs
77-106-113-117-116 - Hallo
60-61-58-60-55-58-59 - 7453216
103-123-102-126-120-110 - brause
#ce

Func decodepw($pass)
    Local $passwd = StringSplit($pass, "-", 0)
    Local $s_hold = ""
    For $i = 1 To $passwd[0]
        If Mod($i, 2) Then
            $s_hold &= Chr(Int($passwd[$i]) - 5)
        Else
            $s_hold &= Chr(Int($passwd[$i]) - 9)
        EndIf
    Next
    Return $s_hold
EndFunc
($calc(%i % 2) == 1)
