I don't know what this means in my console

i really don’t know, my reply to this post is what it says

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/home/runner/ransomware-tester/decrypt.py”, line 3, in
decryptpass = os.environ[‘passwordfordecrypt’]
File “/nix/store/hd4cc9rh83j291r5539hkf6qd8lgiikb-python3-3.10.8/lib/python3.10/os.py”, line 680, in getitem
raise KeyError(key) from None
KeyError: ‘passwordfordecrypt’

Can you give a link to the repl or the code?

I mean I think that means no secret is there but I’m not sure.

The problem is that there is no secret by that name. Please create a secret called “passwordfordecrypt” and try again.

Hey there, hope you are well :slight_smile:

Your code is trying to access an environment variable called ‘passwordfordecrypt’ using the os.environ dictionary. However, this variable does not exist in the dictionary, so Python raises a KeyError exception. A KeyError means that you are trying to access a key that is not present in a dictionary. To fix this error, you need to make sure that the ‘passwordfordecrypt’ variable is defined and exported in your environment before running your code.


well see i am getting confused by it because i do have a secret under that name
