Skynet Research mystery password, package



If you hover your mouse over the "P" in Products at Skynet Research, you'll reveal a password entry slot. At least per this Reddit discussion, no one's figured out a password.

In other Skynet news, /Film received a . . . futuristic light stick?

*Previously: Own a primitive Terminator.

*Buy Terminator toys at eBay.

  1. The password is set to only return a false answer. There is no possible answer to this yet so whatever it links to must not be live yet.

    possible passwords when it does work could be:
    1236AC
    TwelveThirtySixAC
    HUM4N1TY
    T3CHN0L0GY
    1NFORM4TION
    HUMAN3RR0R
    4utonomous
    cpud35ign

    as found on stages through the sign up process

    i may be wrong though

  2. I agree, this is code doesn't allow a form to be processed, it's only a basic:
    <form id="pwform">

    No back end code, and I don't see any javascript that processes anything.

  3. Interesting. Lots of time for them to add new features to the site.

  4. Allright, well, here's the thing. it does have some script that makes the password box appear, and everything, but it doesn't actually check the password against any values, so there's no way you could put in a correct password at this point.

  5. it's developed by a "high entity" that's why it doesn't use any java or script at all, doesn't need it anymore. Or maybe it's just lazyness..

  6. They're right, if there is no back-end page then there probably really isn't a password, just gives them time for the viral fans to talk about the buzz and get more hits on the site for people to crack the password while they can come up with their next strategy for the new viral.

  7. Back end code is found via this code on the page:

    input id="pwdV" name="pwd" type="password" onKeyUp='javascript:checkSubmit(event);'

    The checkSubmit call goes with a JavaScript call at the bottom of the HTML code:

    script type="text/javascript" src="http://skynetresearch.com/wp-content/themes/skynet/js/node.js"

    That JavaScript contains the checkSubmit function. Unfortunately, it looks like the script goes to a .php to validate the password and I have been unable to find out what is there.
