t2′12 Challenge to be released 2012-09-01 10:00 EEST

We’re pleased to announce the release of the t2’12 Challenge!

This year’s challenge starts from the homepage of a young woman who is rumored to be the girlfriend of an infamous carder. To solve the challenge, the participants need to step into investigator’s shoes and follow the clues to find all gang members. But this is only where the challenge begins – each gang member possesses a piece of a secret image file that they have hidden using their own expertise.

Gang members and their secrets can be revealed in any order. The scoreboard shows real-time overview of all investigators, as well as detailed TOP 20 ranking. What is more, this year’s challenge will require a more diverse skillset than ever before. Finding the gang members from the Interwebs is a challenge in its own right but some serious ninja skills are required to unravel the hidden image files.

The rules are simple: the first one to solve the challenge will win free admission to the t2’12 infosec conference. But don’t stop just because you weren’t the first one to solve it: The Advisory Board will select another winner among the next ten correct answers, paying particular attention to the elegance of the solution rather than the speed. In other words you can win with either speed or style 🙂

The t2’12 Challenge will be released 2012-09-01 10:00 EEST right here at http://t2.fi/
