The Honeynet Forensic Challenge

The folks over at The Honeynet Project have put together their latest challenge: The Forensic Challenge. If you have ever been cracked this is an excellent opportunity to learn the tools that black hats use and how to detect them. The average lifetime of a stock Red Hat 6.2 machine is two to three weeks; how many of you are running a stock Red Hat 6.2 machine?

You can either read the rules, go straight to the download page, or read some previous Honeynet Papers. Your job, should you choose to accept it, is to provide a set of deliverables (as outlined in the rules) to the Honeynet Project team by February 19th, 2001. The top twenty submissions will recieve copies of Hacking Exposed (Second Edition).

I would like to strees that this is not a "hacking challenge" that so many people run. This is a real-life machine that was cracked and it is your job to decipher to Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How of it all. This should be viewed as a learning experience run by some very knowlegable white hats.
