Crypto Box Cracked

After almost eleven months, the last stage of the Crypto Box Challenge is finally cracked. Olaf from Germany used partial exhaustion of the possible combinations, together with a hill climbing technique. My congratulations to Olaf! Meanwhile, people from 11 countries have joined the challenge to crack the boxes. Of course, you can still participate and earn your place in the table!

The Crypto Box Challenge consists of three boxes with a shuffled text and a little piece of software. Goal is to shift the letters around until you have a readable text. Once you have managed to decipher a box you send in the solutions and get your place in the table of honor.
More on the Crypto Box Challenge on my website. Good Luck!
