Experts say recently discovered WWII encoded message may never be cracked, ask for public's help. Feeling lucky? (external - login to view)

Experts at intelligence agency GCHQ have asked for help in de-coding a message found attached to a pigeon leg, thought to date back to WWII.

The dead bird was found in a chimney in Surrey a few weeks ago.

But without more information, the code may never be cracked, according to the BBC's security correspondent Gordon Corera.


The code is as follows:


AOAKN HVPKD FNFJW YIDDC

RQXSR DJHFP GOVFN MIAPX

PABUZ WYYNP CMPNW HJRZH

NLXKG MEMKK ONOIB AKEEQ

WAOTA RBQRH DJOFM TPZEH

LKXGH RGGHT JRZCQ FNKTQ

KLDTS FQIRW AOAKN 27 1525/6

Short codes without any other material to compare with are difficult to break.

AOAKN HVPKD FNFJW YIDDC = Rothschilds sent cheque stop.

RQXSR DJHFP GOVFN MIAPX = Fiat currency coming stop.

PABUZ WYYNP CMPNW HJRZH = First build Israel stop.

NLXKG MEMKK ONOIB AKEEQ = Then control world stop.

WAOTA RBQRH DJOFM TPZEH = No one suspects stop.

LKXGH RGGHT JRZCQ FNKTQ = All hail lizards stop.

You should frame that, lol.

Is there a cash reward for cracking this code? Just a little something to pay for professional framing and matting. You should inquire.

I thought it might be a Windows 7 license key but it didn't work.

I like where you guys are going with this but I think you need to go more retro.

Maybe it's the location of Jimmy Hoffa or Amelia Earharts plane?

Possibly the identity of Jack the Ripper?

Or maybe some actually did try giving a 100 monkeys a 100 typewriters and put them in a room for 100 days and this is what was produced?
