Starting May 2nd and going until June 8th, the server located at
www.banneretcs.com will welcome hackers to attack it. If you can
deface the web site or capture the "hidden" document, you win an X-box!
OK, who's got a 0-day they're willing to blow to get an X-box, when
using the 0-day they can make enough money to buy an X-box and several dozen
games and all the add-ons? ;)
So, welcome to the contest! Hack away. If the IIS server goes unhacked
during the extended time period, it might not mean that IIS is
"unhackable", but if it does survive the contest it might convince a few
people that it is a relatively secure web server platform. After all,
No, it only proves that it's secure against hackers who can't sell their
skills for more than the US$149 (or whatever it is now) that an X-box costs.
