Ethical Hacker Skillz Challenge - My Answer

I'm not sure how I happened across the Ethical Hacker site, but there was a "skillz" challenge that had recently been posted by Ed Skoudis and Mike Poor of Intelguardians--both are SANS instructors. The challenge is called "Hack Bill!" and was a fun little story about how O-ren Ishii hacked Bill's server and took over a large botnet. There were going to be two winners based on their submission, one technically correct and one creative while still being technically correct. I chose to write mine in an effort to win the creative portion. Unfortunately, I didn't win, but if you have time, take a look at my submission compared to the winners above and let me know what you think.

Did you see the new challenge based on Dr. Seuss' Cat in the Hat? "Netcat in the Hat" is done all in rhyme. It's awesome.

Thanks for pointing out this site. I'm now hooked on these things.
