'Can You Crack It?' Spies Wanted

Post Posted: Sat Dec 03, 2011 4:48 pm

I found it interesting that ABC News was running this story in the States.

'Can You Crack It?' website, set up by British GCHQ intelligence agency.

They’re looking for a few good spies. GCHQ, the intelligence service of the government of the United Kingdom, is looking for some web-savvy cyber-sleuths-to-be, and apparently decided a post on Craigslist wouldn’t quite do it.

So it put up a website with the enigmatic title “Can you crack it?” and spread the word on Facebook, Twitter and other social media.


Read the whole story HERE.

Here is the puzzle (it would have been much more handy to have it as text rather than a graphic):
