This is the tenth basic mission that can be found at Hack This Site . Please use this as a reference or to help you when you get stuck. This is not intended for people to just breeze on by the missions. Besides, what's the fun in that???

Scenario - This time Sam used a more temporary and "hidden" approach to authenticating users, but he didn't think about whether or not those users knew their way around javascript...

Yet another language to learn.... By now I am sure you realize that in order to be a good hacker you need to start learning how to be versatile and program in many languages. Lets get started by checking out the form. Nothing? Well lets think about the authentication process. When we authenticate to a page and navigate away, do we have to log back in if we come back? Well if the person who wrote the site has cookie authentication then no. Now to check what active cookies are on the page go to the browser bar and type 'javascript:alert(document.cookie) '. Now we can see that we are not authenticated and a whole bunch more irreverent stuff. Umm, how about we try changing this Boolean value? This can be done in a cookie editor or by passing this value to the browser with 'javascript:void(document.cookie="level10_authorized=yes")'. This will get you past the mission.
