Arch Forum User Registration is Broken

What is the output of "date -u +%j`uname`|sha256sum|sed 's/\W//g'"?

The new security question is broken as of Jan-01 (UTC)
     

date -u +%j$(uname)

evaluates to '001Linux'. The forum, however, expects '1Linux' passed to sha256sum|sed 's/\W//g'".

I'm a new user and had to run

echo '1Linux'|sha256sum|sed 's/\W//g'

in order to successfully register. Arch Forum mods owe me 5 minutes of my life back smile

Re: Arch Forum User Registration is Broken

I was also trying to register, thanks for the tip.

It is still buggy, as it is 2nd of Jan, you should use;

echo '2Linux'|sha256sum|sed 's/\W//g'

Re: Arch Forum User Registration is Broken

I also ran into the bug, thanks for the hint smile

This will do the trick:

date -u +%j$(uname)|cut -b3-|sha256sum|sed 's/\W//g'

Re: Arch Forum User Registration is Broken

So registering requires me to be in front of a linux box. Interesting.

Must have missed this discussion. Anyway, I'm not in the mood to discuss such things, so I just find it interesting.

EDIT:

Tanks for the links.

Re: Arch Forum User Registration is Broken

I am sorry for this issue. I missed the leading zeros when implementing this. The forum and wiki registration should show the correct bash code now.

It was not my intention to make the captcha harder by adding a bug to the code. ;-) Next time please file a bug report or send a mail to me so I can fix such issues in time. I am not reading every topic in the forums and just got point to this thread by pure luck.

Greetings,

Pierre

You, sir, are a better man than I....

<mod-apology> I did not realize this was a year-old post. Closing.
