I decided to look further into this Red Triangle puzzle, although I’m playing catch-up, because the “solvers” are already a lot farther along than me!
Anyhow, if you click the https://paxt4n6urwx7uiah.onion/ link, you are taken to a new page, which looks like this:
As you can see, it has the familiar Red Triangle logo, and also has the song “White Rabbit” playing in the background, which may be a clue as well. Beneath the triangle is what appears to be a representation of the Fibonacci sequence; if you inspect this closer, there is a hidden date (“11/24/17”).
Of note: the Red Triangle wiki mentions that this page is playing the same music as this one: rW1EjLjCrOuM5Ee. At the time I started writing this post, the latter site was playing some very fast electronic music, which I couldn’t identify offhand, and featured this image:
The text reads:
Eagles rain fire on the Canaanite, as the merchant
of wine challenges Cyrus, The sword of Lilly joins
forces with Jacob’s adopted children.
At the time of this writing, the site features a different video, which looks like this:
It isn’t the first time I’ve seen another site use the Cicada imagery and themes; I have no idea if this one is genuine or not, but I doubt it. I’m also unsure as to whether this site is related to Red Triangle in any way, but it doesn’t appear to be.
Anyhow, I digress. In Chapter 2 of the Red Triangle puzzle, if you view the source code, you’ll find an HTML comment with another triangle image and the words, “Coeus’s blood rains upon the mortal men” repeated three times.
I had some difficulty accessing the Chapter 2 site on Tor, believe it or not, but according to the official wiki (yes, I had to cheat):
In the background, in the RedRoom.mp3 during the first 30 seconds of the audio there is a robot voice speaking very slowly and in reverse, when the first 30 seconds are sped up and reversed again, you can hear the robot voice speaking a URL .onion link, along with the message “Follow the White Rabbit” and the URL it gives is https://paxt4n6urwx7uiah.onion.link/112417at at first people where having trouble connecting to the URL but when adding .html to the end, it connects you with Chapter 3 of the puzzle. Also included in the Meta data [sic] of the audio is the name Red Man, which seems to be one of the people behind the entire puzzle.
Oddly enough, I was exploring the link list Fresh Onions the other day, and happened to come across one of these sites without realizing it was even connected to Red Triangle:
I had only seen the text on the left, so it’s interesting to read the translation. Any thoughts on this?
