Just a few seconds of research shows d.net would not qualify.

"This is a "Show Your Work" Problem
To make sure that you did not just guess an arbitrary bodacion, you must be
able to demonstrate that you have cracked the code by presenting all your
work, and by being able to crack any series of bodacions. "

IE. Brute force is not suitable for this problem.
