However the reality behind the puzzle is no where near close to being revealed and remains shrouded in mystery and left to the speculation of online chat rooms.
Although some major organizations, including intelligence ones, have used methods that bear some resemblance tonothing has ever come close to the scale and complexity of Cicada ; and the fact that so little is still known about the mysterious organization today just adds fuel to the fire that has captured global attention.
The purpose behind these puzzles aside, online forums and chat rooms have exploded with users keen to share information and efforts in order to uncover the enigma behind this increasingly mysterious organization.

A shift cipher replaces each letter in the plaintext with a letter or in this case, arbitrary ASCII character with a letter a certain number of positions down the alphabet.
To decipher this, a perl oneliner is enough: It seems like the challenge is a bit harder than a caesar cipher after all. Incidentally, OutGuess is also developed by Niels Provos and is available for download from the same site as stegdetect http: Unfortunately, it seems like stegdetect is only able to detect when the older OutGuess 0.
