I've seen hints that media files can give you codes but I haven't been able top figure or any from the media I have. How does it work?

Here is the code, i don't know how to decode it xD dodaj.rs/f/1G/Mr/w9UVodb/sensitives1.png –  user39123 Dec 30 '12 at 16:37
    
Here is an audio media I received today from hacking. I already looked at the metadata and source and have no idea. Please post your results if you figure it out: commondatastorage.googleapis.com/objx/lrg/555h5.mp3 –  rwyland Jan 1 '13 at 23:23
    
@rwyland I have the same media file, but no idea where to start –  Joe Jan 22 '13 at 7:14

Right now all working passcodes I know are the one being published by Niatic Labs in twitter.

Here is the document which contains all known passcodes. All of passcodes should still be applicable and can be used by each player only one.

I recommend you use http://ingress.com/intel to apply them.

Would be extremely interesting to try to hack documents you get for codes, but so far I had no success.

Update: some very clever guys from Berlin resistance have found a way how to hack these document, this is the result:

11/19/2012: Sensitives (SOLVED) http://commondatastorage.googleapis.com/pac/IB/00/item/Sensitives1.png

Binary code is encoded in the right margin of the document.

Replace... Dots with 0 Dash with 1 Equal sign with 11

...to get: 0110000101100110011100100110000101101101001100010011001101110100

Convert binary to ASCII to get: afram13t an #Ingress passcode

An uncensored version of this document was obtained from portal hacking by Ingress >players. The faint text in the enhanced image (attached in this album) is lifted from >page 2 of the doc, which was also obtained by hacking.

Page 2 contains an ADA image hidden in the Niantic logo.

Looks like the doc method wont work much longer. ingressfieldguide.com/?q=content/changes-ingress-passcodes –  Daenyth Nov 28 '12 at 18:32
    
Might want to update this answer to reflect the fact that the passcodes are now expired and can't be used. –  Brysonic Jan 21 '13 at 13:46

Apparently you need to find the code somewhere in the media.

For example, this page describes how the passcode ezekiel27w was recovered from a media by converting a string of digits in the header from decimal to ASCII.

(This means that those with full time jobs are unlikely to benefit from many passcodes)
