The Shin Bet domestic security agency launched a recruitment campaign last week to enlist new spooks to its cyber division, using a riddle that must be solved before anyone can apply.

Of the approximately 60,000 people who have attempted to solve the riddle since Thursday, only six have successfully done so, according to the Hebrew-language Ynet news site.

In addition to the cyber riddle, the Shin Bet released a recruitment video for other positions at the agency, as well as a new website ahead of Israel’s 69th Independence Day celebrations beginning Monday evening.

The Mossad foreign intelligence agency also launched a recent recruitment campaign, in which it asked for those with humanities degrees, as well as other majors, to apply for the position of intelligence officer.
