[11:04] <safarious> hey guys I found some really intressting stuff on the cicadaOS - i unpacked 3301.img of the .iso -> you can load it here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/58sg973o9hphn5r/HCTQLZAaLG
[11:04] <safarious> check the order tmp-> there are 3 scripts
[11:05] <safarious> aberr, folly wisdom
[11:05] <iII> folly and wisdom should be on the wiki
[11:05] <iII> and are identical, which is clever
[11:06] <iII> I don't remember aberr
[11:06] <safarious> hmm allright..
[11:07] <safarious> can you hand me the wiki-link
[11:07] <iII> not atm
[11:07] <iII> it'll be in 2013 if it's up there
[11:07] <iII> a comment on each will be if a link isnt'
[11:08] <safarious> i found it
[11:08] <iII> definately don't remember aberr either way
[11:09] <iII> so that's interesting
[11:09] <safarious> but its there
[11:09] <safarious> god
[11:09] <safarious> check the link for download, i just uploaded it some minutes ago
[11:10] <safarious> but the file seems to be empty..
[11:10] <iII> I've got an unpacked iso from last year

[11:21] <safarious> i do some investigation on: 98-tc.rules which is in the same folder as aberr folly wisdom
[11:21] <safarious> there is no binary code in it and you can read it.

[11:36] <safarious> found something intressting about the aberr file: http://pastie.org/8632100
[11:36] <safarious> its used in a script on the 3301-file
[11:36] <safarious> if the file dosn't exist the cdrom gets unmouted
[11:36] <safarious> that means something gets mounted while the cicadaOS is started
[11:37] <safarious> and if aberr is not there it gets unmounted.
[11:37] <eonn> safarious, which 3301.img are you using
[11:39] <safarious> https://www.dropbox.com/sh/58sg973o9hphn5r/HCTQLZAaLG

[11:46] <tim0k> where did this link come from?

[11:51] <safarious> http://uncovering-cicada.wikia.com/wiki/CICADA_3301_2014_PUZZLE_FACTS_PART_5
[11:52] <safarious> than go to the chat about onion4
[11:52] <safarious> cydoniac posted the following url: https://www.dropbox.com/s/r7sgeb5dtmzj14s/3301¨
[11:57] <tim0k> yep.. it's one year old
[11:57] <tim0k> how do we know it's even legit
[12:00] <tim0k> it's from last year 
[12:01] <safarious> idk, but those 3 Strings from onion 2-3-4 probably have to do with that .iso
[12:16] <-> iII is now known as iII|out
[12:21] --> brotherBox (~brotherBo@ip-178-203-85-56.unitymediagroup.de) has joined #CicadaWiki
[12:24] <safarious> allright, deeper investigation showed.... that the file 3301, in the 3301.img is never started from somewhere
[12:25] <safarious> this means aberr, folly, wisdom - where completly useless until now
[12:25] <safarious> i try to change the code of the image..
[12:33] <safarious> allright i added the code, to execute 3301
[12:34] <safarious> can someone help to put the initrd back to an .img file?

From 2013

found data files in /tmp

http://codeseekah.com/cicada/folly
http://codeseekah.com/cicada/wisdom
folly counts as 258 and wisdom counts as 270
neither being prime
let me do dumps too
http://codeseekah.com/cicada/folly.32.txt
wisdom is the same, identical files

Linux prompt
You have to boot up the iso either in vmware or from a cd, once it starts
printing the prime Ctrl+C to acess a linux prompt
If you press Ctrl+C you can acess a linux prompt Login with username tc,
but nothing usefull has been found from what I know
the username is tc
TC = Tiny Core (nix distro)
[Default Username

Recording of what happens when you boot that linux CD
