Missing underscores while decoding a Atbash string.

See original GitHub issue

Describe the bug A clear and concise description of what the bug is. -----> Underscores are neglected while outputting decoded string which is encoded with atbash cipher.


ciphey -t "Tizmg_nv_zxxvhh_gl_gsv_nzk_kovzhv"
Result 'Grant me access to the map please' (y/N): y
Format used:
Final result: "Grant me access to the map please"


  • OS/Distro: [Kali Linux 2019.2]
  • Python version: [Python 3.7.5rc1]
  • Ciphey versions: [Version: 5.5.2, Version: 0.3.1, Version: 0.3.26]
  • Did you use Docker? ----->No

Verbose Output []

To Reproduce Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. What input did you use? “Tizmg_nv_zxxvhh_gl_gsv_nzk_kovzhv”

  2. What flags / arguments did you use? (-t) ciphey -t “Tizmg_nv_zxxvhh_gl_gsv_nzk_kovzhv”

Expected behavior I expect that output would be with underscores, but they are missing.

This problem is because “hello_my_name_is_bee” isn’t English unless you take away the underscores. Per our wiki this is expected behaviour that will change with our new checkers 😄

In the first wiki page, I talk about why CyberChef can decode that string and Ciphey can’t: image

And in the 2nd wiki page, I describe how we’re going to solve the problem of not being able to decode that string: image
