Could you give some details as to how you've encountered this code, what do you expect the answer to be, what do you know about the person who wrote it etc.? Cracking a code can be very much like cracking a password, you crack the person not the password itself. Otherwise that can be literally anything

It's basically all of the letters in the alphabet shifted by a certain number e.g. number 3 means A -> D i.e. 3 letters down.

What that number is a can't be bothered to figure out, good luck with that.

not necessarily, that's why it kind of matters who wrote this code. If it's your average 10th grader for example then that would be a good assumption to make and all that's left is to try out a lot of combinations until a valid result comes up. Otherwise i don't know if it's worth the effort of doing that.

Hint: it’s not worth it.

Then why do you care enough for someone to try and help you?

Edit: mb, thought you were the OP.

If thats true then just put the code into any old 'caesar cipher decoder' online and u get it

If each letter is shifted by a different number, then its a vigenere (for which this message is too short to crack) or a one time pad, which is impossible to crack (unless you send 2 messages with the same encryption).

No it isn't. None of the traditional Caesar Cipher shifts work here

Dropping it into quipqiup returns a number of similar but unlikely results including:

amazing pretty blossom puuc
amazing pretty blossom pccw
against wholly ??????g week
amazing whurry blossom week

And so on

Can you tell us where the code came from? Odds are there's a clue in the context as by itself there are too many potential things to try

Also it’s part of the second stage of cyber discovery program the challenges have been quite simple so far and I think this one is as well but I just can’t seem to figure out the code. The briefing for the challenge says that it might be a meet-up location.

A Google search for portions of the cipher throw up this reddit thread, where someone was trying to decrypt an almost identical string. The main difference is there's an l in the final block of characters and the w is actually vv; also the third block uses a u instead of n. Maybe check that you've copied the cipher correctly. This decrypts to a slight misspelling of amazing cherry blossom coffee. Cherry blossoms immediately make me think of Japan, and a Google search for "amazing cherry blossom coffee throw up a few results". But without some more context (the previous parts of the challenge, the exact text on the page, other artefacts that may be relevant, etc.) it's difficult to go much further.

I misread your username as Cthulhu . There ends my interest in this thread.

i worked it out using caesar's its amazing cherry blossom booty (pretty sure the last word should be 5 letters)

good game all

As has been mentioned several times, it's not a Caesar Cipher. The "Amazing Cherry Blossom" answer is found by mapping each letter to the reverse alphabet. This is commonly called Atbash, and can be represented as an Affine Cipher where A and B both equal 25. The fact you keep bringing up Caesar shows you don't actually have the faintest idea what you're talking about
