[Trailhead] Failtech
Future Advancements and Innovations Laboratories Technologies

Received a tip with the following URL, along with a website that includes a screenshot of the Google ad triggering the whole kit 'n caboodle, and will presumably include a summary of events as those occur.

http://www.failtechnologies.com/
https://sites.google.com/site/failtechmystery/

In the source code:

Quote:
HELP ME! /FAIL /FAIL /FAIL
DON'T LET HER KNOW YOU'RE HERE


That'll take you to the logical next step.

I would hope so and going to the next step brings

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
LAINSY SAYS : I dont know what you are up to. Whatever you are looking for is NOT HERE I dont accept orders from anonymous people. I only accept orders from Security Clearance Level 10 and above.

PROTOCOL 6 : SECURITY LOCKDOWN ACTIVE

ADMIN ACCESS LOCKDOWN /admin


Which brings us to

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
/*access level* e.g. /L1 for Level 1 access

>> OVERRIDE: ADMIN SECTION UNLOCKED

>> OVERRIDE: Level 1 seems to be available, however, I can't access
Level 2 and above. It seems LAINSY has reset the codes.
Either that, or she has locked us out of the system from
inside. Only people outside can access.


and i'm still trying to get to the next part.

This intrigues me. The pages won't load for me, however.

Here is a stage we missed, there might be more, poking around a bit for now Smile

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
typing in an invalid directory leads to :
http://failtechnologies.com/fail/?error=404
removing the error part yields
http://failtechnologies.com/fail/
which cherrytree98765 already posted the contents of.
Trying out some other error-codes gives us some backstory, additional information :
http://failtechnologies.com/fail/?error=500
http://failtechnologies.com/fail/?error=403
http://failtechnologies.com/fail/?error=401


Also found :

Yeah we had found some of those, but not I think 1 of the others.

Still finding nothing on the Username and Password. Urgh. I feel like I should know it but don't.

Nice find on the twitter though! I had searched for it before, but I obviously failed at that.

Trying to get to /lainsy seems to direct to the 403 page which you get if you try to go beyond L2. Interesting.

I've also tweeted about trying to crack Level 1 with the failtech hashtag. Maybe that will get us something.

Finally hoping to get in at ground level on an ARG - been lurking for a while but never posted!

It couldn't have anything to do with the message on the error pages, could it? Some words are in full caps after all...

Been lurking for a while. Think I'll quit lurking and get in on some of the action. If you put in ...fail/?error=200, which is the http ERROR OK code, you get this message...

Code:
LAINSY has triggered a security lockdown in the FAILTECH Antarctica Facility. Almost all outside communications has been cut-off however we were able to transmit this and small burst of signal to the website´s mirror server. The signal is something LAINSY cant understand, however, most of us in the Space Communications Reseach will immediately know what it is.

I hope you can help us. We only have limited resources in the facility we dont know what LAINSY will do to us. She seemed to have acquired some virus and made her decide stupid things.

You then can listen to the audio file that was uploaded. It seems to have morse code in it, but it's going really fast. We'll have to slow it down some.

Woot, nice discovery, I totally overlooked that error code xD

The soundfile
Spoiler (Rollover to View):
is divided into 2 channels 1 morsecode and 1 repeating annoying beeping sound.
So far i've isolated the morsecode and now i'm looking for a tool to run it through

It seems to be translating in hexadecimal. I'm still decoding it...

Bam!

I figured it out.

Welcome to Future Advancements and Innovations Laboratories Technologies or FAILTECH!

Despite the funny short name, we are never a fail. We have been successful in several projects
such as our patented Light Molecular Assembly and Organization (L.M.A.O.) technology, which is proudly
our best project as a result of our excellent researchers and scientist in the Advanced Molecular Physics
department. The technology has then been licensed to Duo Corp. and will be used for one of their future
projects that will mark the new age of gaming. (ref: /L1/LMAO.html)

Other projects has been not very positive in the reception of investors and consumers. However, those
"failed" projects has then bee revised and integrated in other advancements and innovations that FAILTECH
is working on. One of which is the technology we call WhispherTalk. It's a technology where people can
communicate with others by just whisphering or rather "thinking". No matter how far or close the other
person is, he will get to hear the "whispher" of the sender. It has not been well received by investors
and the public, so it has then moved on to be innovated upon for a future space communications network
that is currently worked on by our scientists and researchers in the Space Communications Research
department. (ref: /L1/whispher.html)

If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask LAINSY. It can be about your homework, life,
and all other kinds of things. She is proudly one of finest works that is not for sale. She oversees
most of FAILTECH as she is unbiased and logical. We are very proud of her. (ref: /L1/lainsy.html)

Ask her anything by heading to /asklainsy and fire away any questions to her.

Yes, that's what I got. I normally try and let others figure it out themselves, before I tell them. Half the fun is doing it yourself. It's why I tend to appear as a lurker.

I've also been trying to figure out the next signal. I... purposefully left out that link.

The second signal sounds familiar to one used in another ARG I was in. They hid an image inside of it. Could that be the same here?
