These are the codes you need to crack to get a job as a British cyberspy

Quartz- A website, canyoufindit.co.uk, just went live. It contains 28 sets of five letters and one set of three letters. There are five answers. If you get them right, you may be on your way to joining GCHQ, Britain’s signals-intelligence agency, in either the “cyber and technical operations,” “maths and cryptography” or “advanced technology research” departments. The website was registered in March to TMP Worldwide, a recruitment company that has in the past helped GCHQ search for women engineers. (Web)

code itself is not hard, if you can do complex math in your head. it simply understanding the formula they used too make it look like gibberish but been able too relocate it back too words.

like all Q = A all 1 = t so "Q1" would be would be "at"

that very basic form of the code, am sure they used a more complex form. why their offering you a job if you could crack it.

this is as far as i got.

after a certain amount of modifications to the text i am able to extract this message

A COMPUTER WOULD DESERVE TO BE CALLED INTELLIGENT IF IT COULD DECEIVE A HUMAN INTO BELIEVING THAT IT WAS HUMAN

and a certain website which i suppose is part 2. however i don't know what they looking for as 5 answers. so i could be wrong. the website i get however takes me to a different part of the web. so not sure what to do there either.

EDIT: ok so i found the first answer. it was a from the website that was decrypted earlier. if anyone wants it, PM me. dont wanna ruin the fun for anyone else.

For those up for a challenge, but uncertain on where to start, here are some jumping off points:-

Identifying ciphers, RSA key breakdown, RSA key calculator, ascii/base64/hex converter, endianness, hex editor, file header.

Have fun. :)
