I have a nice riddle for you.
It involves cryptography.

At last, he thought.
We're finally out of this town.
"New town, new beginnings" said to himself.
Row after row, they passed through the seats
in the plane, and took theirs. Mastered.
When they got to the new house, they were amazed.
What they didn't know is that
The house was haunted.
Word spread quickly of the new family in
town. People warned them about the ghost,
so they called the local Ghostkickers
and they took the ghost.
Years later, a code was hidden inside
the ghost. A very important code.
"After 200 years," said the ghost "We're finally free! Run my ghosts Run!"

Maybe it is AES?

THE first one goes to 287278416 with the key that is in quotes, the second one is NOT base-64, but can be split into 2 base64 strings.

The first of the 2 decrypts to: 4222261970, and the 2nd one is: 2658826205.

that > symbol must mean that 4222261970>2658826205, right?

Now what?


A small bit but perhaps useful. In the "necessary riddle",

the capital letters are USER, which could then make the whole thing into "USER will give the answer".

The OP's user number is 28520, if that helps.
