Breaking In, anyone?

From http://www.linuxense.com/challenge/ thru /.

The Linux Server Break-in challenge. You will have a server available on the Internet 96 hours without interruption starting from 9 March 2005 2 AM IST. However, the server's life on the Net is in your hands. This server won't be protected by firewall. There won't be any fake demons or honeypots as well. It will be running all the services normally found in a regular Linux distribution and more. If no one could compromise it till the end of 48 hour, Linuxense will release an active shell account for you to login and play around. All user activities on the server will be logged. At the end of the event Linuxense will share the packet capture data with the contestants for analysis.

Interesting.

It's spelled P-U-B-L-I-C-I-T-Y S-T-U-N-T, and is an old hat with small companies who try to get some attention to themselves. In fact, this is so old that Bruce Schneier slammed it almost 7 years ago:

Such contests prove nothing except that the person who is running it doesnt really understand security.
