Re: Breaking Encryptions?

First, you have to know what kind of encryption it is. Research helps familiarize you with such things. For example, MD5 hashes have 16-bytes, usually represented as 32 hexadecimal digits.

Second, you have to research the methods that can be done to decrypt/break it. Not all hashes can be decrypted, some need to be brute-forced (like MD5). There are several other methods as well, but all of these you can only learn if you actually research on the content.

If you're talking about the challenges here, try to figure out the basic hashes first and see if you can find a way to decrypt them.
