It seems that Downfall was a little harder than intended due to a PHP upgrade which broke something. Firstly - massive congrats to dloser for solving it despite this increase in difficulty.

sabretooth
No
7th March 2016
A new crypto online. This one was originally developed by Caesum for TBS, however I thought the idea was so great (and that more people needed to try it - especially as TBS is currently broken) that I recreated it for RevElite. I may have simplified it a little ;) Hail Caesum!

sabretooth
Yes
28th August 2015
I set security headers on the site: X-XSS-Protection, X-Content-Type-Options, X-Frame-Options, Strict-Transport-Security (the last one will be an issue if you want to use an intercepting proxy. you'll have to import the site certificate to get around this) If any challenges are non-functioning due to these changes, please let me know. sabretooth

Challenge 147 - RuleBreaker is now online. Think outside the box for this one
sabretooth
No
22nd August 2015
We open the Stegano section with Challenge 146 - Combined, Mirrored... It should be said that the title of this challenge is paying homage to Anto's challenge on the now-defunct HackQuest - 'Combined, Mirrored, Hated'. Although this challenge is not a copy of the HackQuest counterpart, it did provide inspiration for this new Stegano.
sabretooth
No

sabretooth
No
23rd April 2015
Over the next few days, around 10 (or so) fake challenges will be added to the database and will show up in the profile, creators list, however they should not affect a user's % solved or wechall status. These challenges are NOT intended to be found or solved - They are merely for my own benefit, testing the progress of the new area of the site. The challenges will be removed when testing is complete.
sabretooth
Yes
21st April 2015
The account options panel has now been rewritten. This means that all options can be changed at once, rather than the old toggle on/off one at a time.

sabretooth
No
10th April 2015
(Finally) fixed a bug in Case 19: Shady Dealings Admin which allowed users to skip nearly the whole challenge. Thanks to criple_ripper for reporting and to amone for the reminder. Any user who solved this the 'easy way' will keep their solved status, but for educational purposes, try to solve it the correct way :) In other news, case 20 will end later today with the next challenge.
sabretooth
Yes
11th January 2015
There will be one final challenge in case 20. This will also take a while to code so you will have plenty of time to solve the existing 136 challenges and aim for 100% (I'm looking at you tehron)

sabretooth
No
7th April 2014
Thanks to tehron for a recent bugreport. It seems that some accounts are shown as logged in when they actually are not. This is because (even ignoring https) the url for this site used to be http://sabrefilms and is now http://www.sabrefilms. If you have an old session still active, either clear your RevElite cookies or wait for them to expire :) thanks!
sabretooth
No

sabretooth
No
10th March 2014
I usually make a point of not changing challenges once they are uploaded (except if there are security issues or they are broken in some way), however I have updated Enter And Pass in Case 4 with an extra piece of information. I have always hated this challenge and finally now I can say it is one which fits with the rest! Congrats to the previous 20 solvers and I hope to see a few more now.
sabretooth
No

A new category of android challenges has just opened. Thanks to alucardo for beta-testing this one. Expect many more to come! Challenge 123 now online.
sabretooth
No
26th January 2014
This could get confusing... I would like to introduce RevolutionElite's new Junior Admin: Jhype. Now, this is no relation to the recent Jhype virus saga in case 17. Jhype has been a good friend of mine for years and I wanted to pay homage to her as part of the storyline, but now we are in this position, I perhaps shot myself in the foot on this one ;) - sabretooth
sabretooth
Yes
20th January 2014

sabretooth
Yes
2nd January 2014
Challenge 120 is online: Modus Operandi. This should end the whole Jhype virus saga. Interesting point - I had planned to write this for lost-chall 5 years ago but did not have the knowledge to code it effectively... Yet another challenge rolling around my head for 5 years which I am now free of! Enjoy.

19th October 2012
Case 13 accusation is now online
sabretooth
No
27th September 2012
It has come to my attention that challenge 92 (Draco) could only be solved with smartphones and not by alternative means (at least not as easily). I felt this was a little unfair to those of us unfortunate enough to not have access to a required device. Due to this, the challenge has been updated. Easier to solve perhaps, but available to all. Many thanks
sabretooth
No
27th September 2012
Finally a new challenge! 92: Draco is now online
sabretooth
No
2nd September 2012
Sorry there have been no updates as of late. Both Wyshfire and myself are busy with study, work and family. There is another challenge to come in case 13 followed by the accusation, and these will be done before the end of the month I am sure. Expect a challenge from Wyshfire soon for case 14 :)

sabretooth
No
4th February 2012
The server has been spamming my inbox with emails reporting various users bruteforcing challenges such as 'Prime Suspect' which really does not need it with a little thought. From a discussion with a certain user I have implemented red/orange/green icons on the challenges which denote respectively: no scripts/scripts are fine, but not necessary/scripts are okay. Anyone found running bots/scripts against a challenge marked RED will receive a warning or ban. Thanks for your understanding.
sabretooth
No
22nd January 2012
Case 11 is now complete with the accusation now online.
sabretooth

Discussion afterwards boards are now online. Feel free to post how you solved a particular challenge. I'll post there too from time to time showing my intended methods :) If you find any bug or exploit, please let me know.

As promised, challenge 76 - Stateless is online. Many thanks to the beta testers.
sabretooth
No
16th December 2011
It has been decided that in the new year I will code a solutions board for each challenge accessable to those who have solved that challenge. Here I will post the model solution for the challenge and have a comments form for users to post their own methods and ask questions. Due to the enclosed nature of the forum, this will probably take the form of the visitor messaging system and will have to be entirely self-coded so it may take a while. New challenge should be up tomorrow :)
sabretooth
Yes
10th December 2011
Challenge 75 - A Memo is online!

Uploading a new challenge every week (roughly) is taking its toll on me, so I'm leaving PoisonIvy in charge of the site for a few days and taking a short break from RE as I didn't get around to the last break I had promised myself. Note that this isnt due to lack of ideas, as I am already planned up to the end of case 10. Will be back with a new challenge or two next week. Thanks to all. sabretooth

It has come to my attention that in creating a new forum, all existing posts will be lost. Having checked through them and finding only 20 non-admin posts, I feel that this is probably a good time to do this. I shall however create an archive section in the new forum and copy all messages there in a read only format. New users are automatically registered into the new forum upon registration, and existing users are automatically registered into the new forum upon login. I hope to get this fully up and running by the end of the month.
