    What ever happened to hackiis6.com?

    Hi everyone,

    I just wanted to ask if anyone knows what ever happened with the hackiis6.com competition?

    To summarize the contest, this is take from slashdot.org:

    "Starting May 2nd and going until June 8th, the server located at http://www.hackiis6.com/ will welcome hackers to attack it. If you can deface the web site or capture the "hidden" document, you win an X-box! Read contest rules for what does and doesn't constitute a successful hack. We've tried to be as realistic as possible in what constitutes a successful hack, and in mimicking a basic HTML and ASP.NET web site."

    According to Greg Hughes website, on June 9th, the "Winner (or lack of winner) announced at TechEd in Orlando".

    I have googled the heck out of any related terms, but there seems to be no news since about mid-may... I can't even find anything in any of the teched reports or the msdn teched bloggers...

    Anyways, if anyone knows I would be very interested =).

    Thanks!

    Inferno.

    hmm, nothing, Who would be dumb enough to give up a IIs6 0day (worth 10s of thousands of dollars) for an xbox.

    Looks like the usual FUD/SCAM to me?

    Hell I would not even get out of bed to BUY an xbox now, a zero day IIS6 exploit..............I could make money out of?

    If no-one did it, they would be bragging about it...........so I would assume that it is either a total scam/marketing exercise..............or someone DID and they (Microsoft) are wetting themselves.

    I hope the jerk had the brains to hold out for more than a scabby xbox


    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    I believe they re-named the exercise "Find the next iis60 developer"

    I agree, if it was legit and no one busted it, they would be pumping dough into advertising that, but perhaps they feel if they brag about it, they will get smoked by someone who really could smack the server.

    Wow I didn't know 0day exploits were worth $$, I just figured the first one to find one has the glory of getting their advisory published somewhere like securityfocus.

    Oh well, you learn something new every day =).
