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?
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:
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)
These are generally discouraged as it takes the fun out of decoding.
