Challenge "Double Column Transposition — Part 2"  

  By: admin on May 2, 2014, 11:30 a.m.

In this part of a series of mid-level Double Column Transposition challenges, a large part of the beginning of the plaintext is known. This partial crib allows you to attack this simple, yet strong cipher.

Amazing that anybody has been able to solve this challenge with a crib that is wrong !!!

It seems to me that of late more challenges contain errors than not.
Perhaps it is wise to check the challenges more thoroughly before they are posted ?

You are right and thank you for catching the error.

This is the correct crib


The mistake was in "WHOLOATHED" which was truncated to "WHOOATHED". But the crib is quite long so I supposed this still allowed for a solution.

I will ask the admin to correct.

Thanks again and good luck with the other challenges. Could you kindly send me a PM with details how you solved?
