The Honeynet Project today announced Dion Mendel as the winner of the Honeynet Reverse Challenge contest. "The Reverse Challenge is an effort to allow incident handlers around the world to all look at the same binary -- a unique tool captured in the wild -- and to see who can dig the most out of the tool and communicate what they've found in a concise manner. This is a nonscientific study of tools, techniques, and procedures applied to post-compromise incident handling. The challenge is to have fun, to solve a common real world problem, and for everyone to learn from the process. If what I've said already isn't enough to get you interested, the Honeynet is offering signed copies of their popular Know Your Enemy book for the 20 best submissions.

    All we are going to tell you about the binary is this; Sometime in 2002 a Honeynet system was compromised, and the binary in question was downloaded, installed, and then ran on the compromised honeypot. Its now your mission -- should you choose to accept it! -- to identify how the tool works, its purpose, and to show your methods for analysis. We don't expect that everyone undertaking the challenge can or will address all of the following items, but the list below of questions and deliverables is provided as a guideline for what to produce and what to focus on. The following points should be addressed in your answers.html document.
