Hi I was on Basic 12 a while ago and then figured out how to get the username so I've go 2 Q's for you:
1:Is the Username the same as the pass but just encoded.
2:If so What encryption is it?(I think it's DES)
ThanksSmile

basic 12 if I recall correctly has a username:password hash

in the case above the username = username ... the password = password. I know I explained this on a previous forum post about this exact same challenge. Just got to read them :P

only the password is encrypted.

Tip for this and most other challenges. The passwords are usually a word in the english language. Brute force is generally unneeded. Just run a decent sized dictionary against the passwords and you will solve them. JTR with the c&a word list is plenty.
