# Crack the code: JavaRelated

I got a card with a text from a software company, and it tells me to decode it.
The only thing written on the card is the following code:

  bWpvey9vam9rYjMxMjZBZXpvYnVzYmRmL2Rwbg==


Might be Java related

• Is there any story or background information available for this riddle? Might be needed to solve it. In what way exactly might it be related to Java? – The Dark Truth Oct 28 '15 at 13:56

The string is base 64 encoded, decoding gives:

  mjo{/ojokb3126Aezobusbdf/dpn


The string /dpn gives a further clue how it needs to be deciphered; if you take the previous character in the ASCII table you get .com. Substituting each letter with the previous letter in the ASCII table gives the following email address. I have replaced @ with (at) to avoid email scrapers abusing this address.

• @Gamow, how did you get the correct decoding? I also got the wrong decoding that first was given – Ivo Beckers Oct 28 '15 at 14:09
• @Ivo: I used the tool at base64decode.org – Gamow Oct 28 '15 at 14:10
• ...so... I know that it's just answering the question, but maybe the email address should be obscured in some way so crawlers don't eat it? – Ian MacDonald Oct 28 '15 at 16:02
• I have replace (at) with @ to stop email scrapers – Jaco Oct 28 '15 at 16:08
• So does that mean the question is basically an ad for Dynatrace? – Engineer Toast Oct 28 '15 at 17:48
