[Article]-Netcat in the Hat

Here we go... This challenge is like nothing you've seen. Tom Liston conjures up the spirit of Dr. Seuss as he writes the entire scenario is rhyme. It's quite impressive.

Here's Ed Skoudis' introduction:

Greetings again, challenge fans! For this month's challenge, Tom Liston has whipped up a delightful doozy, this time all in rhyme. This one is a lot of fun, and will give you a chance to play around with everyone's favorite feline, Netcat! Carefully read the challenge, and submit your answers to the four questions at the end to skillz0906@ethicalhacker.net with the Subject: Skillz Submission by September 30, 2006. Tom will pick three winners using our standard formula: one for the best technical answer, one for the most creative answer, and one winner drawn at random. If your elite skillz are up to the challenge, by all means please dazzle us with your dynamism. But, even if you cannot answer all of the questions, or only have guesses for them, send in your ideas... you'll still have a shot at being the random winner. Tom and myself will autograph and send copies of our book, Counter Hack Reloaded, to each of the winners. Have fun with Netcat in the Hat, dear readers--

-- Ed Skoudis, Intelguardians

After reviewing and getting the thumbs up front the authors on the treatment of their challenge, we feel this is ready for prime time. So it has been submitted to all of the usual suspects. Most importantly, be sure to digg it:

Re: [Article]-Netcat in the Hat

Just a quick to note to thank everyone for playing as the deadline for submissions has come and gone. We again have a number of entries, which means a lot of work for Tom. Give us a week or so, and we will announce the answers and winners.

Much appreciated,
Don
