"Counter Hack" author Ed Skoudis
presents HACKERS OF THE LOST
ARK, another of his popular Crack-the-Hacker challenges.
Going along with Ed's usual flair of adventurous back-story (this one no doubt
inspired by the 1981 blockbuster "Raiders of the Lost Ark") we learn
that just after archeologist Indiana Jones had retrieved the all powerful Ark
of the Covenant from the Nazis, it was secretly stored away in a giant warehouse
by the United States Government, never to be found again...
That is until of course, a group of evil Neo-Nazis hacks into the Government's
prototype server holding sensitive information of the Ark's exact location...and
suddenly a whole new adventure begins and your forensics skills are beckoned!
Ed himself is offering prizes to the top three sleuths.
The challenge runs until July 2nd
