Thanks to kira for first pointing this out here (I was busy all day today for once and my computer wasn’t able to see updates!).
As you can tell from 2 posts down, the Monster.com video revealed the true identity of Persephone as being one Rachel Blake, a young lady hacker who put out a video coming clean with her ID (the Monster video itself was taken down, but I’ve linked a YouTube unmodified duplicate below). The actress that plays her has actually been spotted in the past in bit roles on The West Wing, and other popular TV shows. If you know what the actress’ name is, please post in comments, I want to hear from you!
As always, the backsite http://persephone.thehansofoundation.org continues to give us secret clues, even though the main THF site has been “SHUT DOWN” since the last hack on Friday. Today’s new video is a creepy lady with eyes blacked out, and strange audio playing in the background of “fast talking” (and some music that sounded like an ice cream truck or music box… anyone know what the tune is of?).
The audio guys slowed this down and played this backwards… and this is what they came up with:
101 118 105 100 101 110 116 32 97 103 101 110 100 97
Translated: evident agenda
This is another password!
At around the same time, the new site http://www.rachelblake.com was discovered; it is on the same server as http://thehansofoundation.org and http://www.letyourcompassguideyou.com (other official sites). It is Rachel’s blog… and guess what the login code is under “Extra Info”?
EDIT 6/19: Once again, I must combine two clues that come close together in time, sorry. This was first noted by Oli over on Speaker’s blog, but if you hover your mouse cursor over the SHUT DOWN THF site for many minutes (apparently it is quite a while), you will get the mysterious clue SEEN HERE.
