Ok, so far all I have managed to do is getting the first SQL error message (this is right after the login screen of level 21). I have read the White Paper and tried all the stuff that is suggested in it. I have also read the forum and tired to follow the hint that were given, but still no luck.

After you've found out what columns exist in the table, you need to find a way to enumerate values from those columns. The problem with the login page is that it is not designed to return the values that you've queried, just allow access to a user that has credentials in the table. In that case, we need to be able to find a way to get data from the tables. We do that by enumerating values through syntax errors.

After the section in the whitepaper that shows you how to enumerate the column names, read further on how to create type convertion errors...Once you know how to do that, you can enumerate the usernames and passwords through error messages. The answers are in there...just read a little further down Smile
But everything I have tried does not bring a SQL error message screen, only a

You shouldn't be getting 404 errors, I just checked the challenge and I can confirm it works fine without any 404's. If you'd like, feel free to PM me what you're trying and I'll take a look.

The irony of man's condition is that the deepest need is to be free of the anxiety of death and annihilation; but it is life itself which awakens it, and so we must shrink from being fully alive.
