    After missing the announcement for the second part of the Network Forensics Puzzle (yes, I’m subscribed the feed now!)

    A new challenge is in full swing: Scooby Doo and the Crypto Caper. The solutions for the previous one will be shortly announced. It should be very interesting because it contained some hardcore Linux hacking which is always interesting.
