Klue’s Nightmares and her Dream

There are 6 codes found in the Klue’s Nightmares and her Dream post on the Investigation Blog. Normally there are only 3 codes found but there are 3 codes found in the image which was recycled from November 2014. 1, 2, and 3 are found in the source code; 4, 5, and 6 were found in the image.

Code #1

Observations

The code starts with an m, which could possibly lead it toward a Base64 decoding, but looking at the number of characters (30, or 27 excluding periods) it might not work. ROT-2 gives us a two at the end.

[hint]Looking at a ROT table will help.[/hint]


Code #2

Observations

There are 25 characters in the code, which can give us a nice 5×5 square to look at.

rosik


Code #3

Observations

We see thr and six near the end of the code which can be substituted for 3 and 6 respectively. There is nothing at the beginning of the code though but there is an hrx.

[hint]

(t)hrx

[/hint]


Code #4

f5q0sfwpsqnj6ceg4 (top section of hair)

Observations

The code is in the right format if it were reversed but the 0 is a bit off.

[hint]Go backwards[/hint]


Code #5

5pnh31.34ga7a8b (middle of the right edge)

Observations

The code has the proper format but 1.34g is not a valid keyword. The reverse: g43.1, however, shows results for Migraine with aura.

[hint]There is more than one thing to reverse.[/hint]


Code #6

octc
uear
ress
quab
eeba
abee
quac
uehe
xyou

(bottom section of hair)

Code is still live at the time of this writing.

    Code 3 can also be solved by an 8×3 Grid and reading from bottom to top, substituting the written numbers. Seems easier to me this way.
