    Is there any connection between who received what codes? We're seeing a lot of Charlies but that could just be a coincidence.
    The first code will probably go out in the next 24 hours and then possibly the rest will go out as emails over a short period of time. 96 hours could be the limit of time we have to unlock everything from this first set of encoded messages.

    I think they're going to make phone calls to orange+ agents, that would be logical considering "total system failure" that was mentioned in the e-mail. Signals could as well be sent in the Morse code format for all we know.

    Agents of the same signal level are receiving the same link

    Anyone else finding it weird that the names are a cross between Greek letters and NATO? (
    Alpha (Both)
    Beta (Greek)
    Charlie (NATO)
    Delta (Both)
    Echo (NATO)

    Alpha here, with the same link. I'm on holiday with limited Internet access and won't be able to participate much.

    I checked my emails, received both Alpha and Delta. I think due to my history of the pre-kickstarter campaign, kickstarter, an agent namechange, etc (its all so confusing). I received notices to both agent names/addresses. The subscription preferences page shows one of the names has a game code, the other doesn't. It may be I have a double identity in the system, I hope I'm not causing a system fault, or that I have to do double the work :confused:

    Situation room is new, too

    I agree with making plans incase of system failure.
    Our own IRC channel on Freenode would suffice I guess?

    I also got the Alpha e-mail.

    I too have been sent a Charlie warning.

    This is certainly interesting.

    EDIT: I just want to let people know of our idea for the Season 2 trailer and possible Live Event recap videos (posted in Fan Missions)
    If this turns out to be a live event, it would be great if people could record some short videos or take photos so we can use them for these!

    Might have found something.

    I thought the Cryptobin looked like Base64 so I tried it and got


    So it looks like they've encrypted an AES encryption with Base64...

    This part is fairly interesting (it makes English words anyway)

    It looks like it's simply a wrapper that CryptoBin uses. They decrypt the message into ASCII from Base 64 then parse the remaining string.
    The message is then essentially stored in a HashMap (or dictionary) of Key : Value pairs.
    Key: iv (Initialization Vector)
    Value: ZZ2HsqCMI4gFH9y8YNchjg==

    Key: v (version?)
    Value: 1

    Key: iter (Iterations)
    Value: 1000

    Key: ks (Session Key used by AES)
    Value: 256 (Max value of One Byte)

    Key: ts (Transport Stream? Possibly?)
    Value: 64 (2^6 or the maximum value of six bits, led me here)

    Key: mode
    Value: ccm (Refers to the encryption mode)

    Key: mode
    Value: ccm (Refers to the encryption mode)

    Key: adata (AppData?)
    Value: 'Null'

    Key: cipher
    Value: aes (Advanced Encryption Standard)

    Key: salt (A value that is binary or'd with the password to make it more obtuse)
    Value: 3Pwv3EuW+w8=

    Key: ct (Content)

    It's just metadata that CryptoBin uses when decrypting the file, and not likely to help us decrypt the message.

    On an unrelated note, the situation room has an M made out of butterflies on it. Morpho Medical could be hacking us.
