As part of the week-long residency leading to graduation, the Norwich MSIA program has a voluntary Digital Combat exercise where teams of two players attack various hosts on a network in an effort to gain information about them, find vulnerabilities, and exploit those vulnerabilities in order to access information on said hosts.
This morning, myself and my partner Carlos, pwnd the contest and won a copy of the The Official CHFI Study Guide (Exam 312-49) as well as a limited license of the software we were using to do a large portion of the vulnerability testing called Core Impact. Amazing tool...does everything but butter your bread for you.
In addition, our drinking buddy of the week, Charles, won the afternoon session. Nice work Charles, and thanks Carlos for partnering up with me and kicking ass.
