Crazy Flamboyant for the Rap Enjoyment

After a long wait, Set 8 of the Cryptopals Crypto Challenges has been announced. Designed to be approachable by neophytes and newbies, one Hacker News commenter describes them as "...a much more interesting version of those silly string manipulation tasks you get in CS101, except that instead of passing a course you break harder and harder crypto."
