I've done Heat Miser now, but this ones still giving me problems. I think I'm on the right track, but haven't got there yet. Anyhow, It's proving to be educational. :)

Always gotta hand it to Ed (and now Tim)...  They definitely get the wheels turning.  ;)

Stay with it.  That level isn't as hard as it seems (once you figure out how to go about it.)

Re: SANS Holiday Challenge 2012

I'm lame, can't even figure out how to get past the first zone :-p  I keep thinking I find something but leads to a dead end or I don't know how to use what I find.  This is one of those things I wish I could get a better handle on.  Unfortunately the StrategicSec CTF was a bust.

Challenge completed. :) I'm kicking myself as I was so close a few day's ago, I probably spent longer getting the URL for Snow Miser zone 4 than the other nine zones combined.  :-[

Re: SANS Holiday Challenge 2012

From what I've heard from others, you're definitely not the only one who fought that zone  ;)

Glad you made it!

Re: SANS Holiday Challenge 2012

I messed around and got through a couple of the zones but then just ran out of some free time to concentrate on it.  I did like that I wasn't far off on some of the things I was thinking to get past those first couple.  Would have been lost at the crypto pieces though.  There is always next year!
