There will be a goal, such as "access this website", or "decrypt this file". Hopefully, there'll be rewards. [B]How do I participate?[/B] Post your name in this thread any time up until the start date (Wednesday the 7th). The time of this competition is UTC+0. It will end on Wednesday the 14th. It is currently: [IMG]http://blogcake.x10.mx/img/gmt.png[/IMG] [B]How do I do it? [/B] At some point near 12:00AM UTC+0 on Wednesday the 7th, I will post the executable and the goal of the competition. Your job is to reverse engineer the executable and figure out what it does and how to accomplish the goal. If you need resources or help, check out the [URL="http://www.facepunch.com/threads/1167605"]Reverse Engineering[/URL] thread. [B] How many winners? [/B]There is only [B]one [/B]winner.

  • [QUOTE=ZenX2;34977712]It wont be a virus, right[/QUOTE] If it is, it's your job to figure it out.

  • Jesus christ, Soda. I didn't say we'll be reverse engineering things to get people's passwords. I could hide a random number in a file and tell people to find it, for all you know. Stop rating people dumb.

It just continues a rather worthless argument. I will continue doing what I consider fun, as will I suspect most people here, unless he has a heck of a lot better arguments then what he has shown so far.
