I have a different question; how does one acertain that this is indeed an
open 'hacker challenege'? Could be a critical production server for the
swedish banking system and folks tapping upon it;s service could end up
finding that the legal authorities are bashing down the backdoor shortly
after tapping the tcp/udp ports it might have or might not have exposed.
Get-out-of-jail-free cards are not assured here are they?
If the type of hacker that would be attracted by a mere $137 prize poses
any threat to a critical production server, the site has *bigger* problems. :)
And if the hacker's moral system says it's OK to hack without having the
get-out-of-jail-free card in hand in advance, well... that's the hacker's problem. ;)
