Forensic Challenge 11 - "Dive Into Exploit" - Submission Deadline Passed

Folks,
the submission deadline for the Forensic Challenge 11 "Dive Into Exploit" created by Georg Wicherski from Giraffe Chapter has passed.

We have received 2 good submissions and will be announcing results before the end of July. Without doubt, this challenge was one of the most difficult ones the Honeynet Project provided in the last years so we are really glad about the submitted solutions which seems really high-level at a first glance.

Forensic Challenge 11 - "Dive Into Exploit" - Deadline Extended

Taking a look at the submissions we realized that... mmh no submissions at all... We already knew that solving this challenge requires high skills but it seems like more time is needed in order to solve the Forensic Challenge 11 - "Dive Into Exploit". For this reason we decided to extend the submission deadline to 2012, July 1st.

Have fun (and don't be shy)!

If you ever thought about extending Thug with additional features but didn’t know how to do it you should really keep on reading. Let’s start by taking a look a the code.

Taking a look at src/thug.py we can now read these lines of code

Just a few highlights about Thug:
