    Talking Not-so-usual challenges

    Completion of various challenges require experience in web security. SQL injection, apache, exploiting PHP, etc.

    Level 4. IP address is 72.14.207.99. What is geek that points to it?

    cross - Are you talking about the levels that start immediately when you enter the page, or the ones listed after you click the challenges link?

    I haven't had a lot of time to play this morning, but I've been able to make it through all 5 warm up challenges. I'll register later and see how far I can make it on those.

    LOL! *BONK* The Wolfman will try to be vague as to not spoil it for others. I didn't add the two together.

    Thanks Phish!

    I just started doing the actual challenges. The first one had me stumped for a while, but I got it. It took me about 30 minutes though... I was on the wrong trail and then I finally changed my approach and got it. I'm going to put the second one off for tomorrow. I don't think that one is really going to be that hard...

    I'm really not that good with web security either. Guess it's time to brush up a bit.
