The elusive "Jumbled" cipher has stumped scientists and cryptographers alike...
Not really, but it will stump you soon...
The Jumbled Cipher is a mysterious text cipher that puts text into an unreadable state, making it appear jumbled. Nobody to this point has been able to decode the messy ASCII cipher into its original format.
Here are some examples, showing an example of the algorithm at work:
hello world => ĄûĎĎđPĥđĚĎú Puzzling Stack Exchange => ÈģĮĮĎąĐýPËĢñóćP«ĬóĄñĐýû sp00ky scary => ěĘxxćĭPěóñĚĭ
Your job is to crack the code. You need to figure out what the algorithm is that is being used to encode the string. Your hints follow (more will be added every day the question is not solved).
Take what you will from this riddle: Rumors of an all-smart man were passed around, however, I knew this man, and he was only a bit wise - the rumors were just not true.
As an extra challenge (optional), you can create an encoder and decoder in the programming language of your choice. It may be featured in this post. Good luck cracking the code!
