|Ok, so I'm at the part where I found the directory where *****************/mem doesn't return a 404 error. Problem is, I cannot find out the file's name. I know the extension is probably txt from the hints people dropped in the forums. I've tried every single logical word, like transaction and transact but they don't work. |
I'm getting desperate so I thought of writing a C++ program which cycles through an array with literally every single word that starts with "trans" and either returns a 404 error or opens a window if the URL is right.
Anyone know how I could make a program like this?

Error 162: we were unable to write into **************/mem/ file trans***.***
The error message gives you the name of the sub directory.
It also gives you the first 5 letters of the filename.
You know the extension is .txt from the forums.
That leaves only 3 chars that you don't know.
Google Search = "8 letter words starting with trans"
First Result Says = 10 words
Ten words. That's it. It's that simple.
Anyway, using brute force should be your last resort, apart from log entries, it will result in you being kicked from a decent sever automatically, and your IP blacklisted.
There are about 450-500 words starting with 'trans", that's 500 log entries in a row your brute would have left, instead of just 2 or 3.
You should have a look around in the HBH code bank, as there are 1 or 2 brute force examples somewhere in there that might come in handy later on.
