The 5. part of the challenge seems to be buggy. It is known, that it runs only on WinXP, but sometimes it won't run on WinXP either. If this is the situation, you can still solve the other parts and finish the chall without this one.

I'm interested in this challenge as well, but also have some concerns. I actually find the idea of playing a real malware very attractive, but my understanding is that the people who do this usually do it in isolated environments on boxes that can be wiped and reloaded from scratch. I am not in that position. As interesting as it is, I really can't risk jacking one of my machines.

I am also concerned about the statement above that the software only runs on Windows XP. I don't have an XP box anymore.

I guess I could install it on my GF's dad's computer. It is XP and he installs malware on a regular basis anyway. Smile

Well, you don't have to install it to find the answer for this part. Smile

The challenge is solveable from Linux. 1,2,3,4,6 are just static challs, and you have to solve only 5 from 6 to pass the challenge.

I don't know if the 5th is solveable from Linux, maybe.

And since virtualisation is free (e.g. virtualbox), you don't have use real boxes for the challenge.

Why this chall? Because its unique and one can learn things from it...

Interesting.

Do you mean it will run in Linux, that you can solve it without running it, or that you can solve it in something like WINE?

I've already got VirtualBox but no XP disk to load. Hmm....

The Nilage trojan has been renamed to Trojan-GameThief.Win32.Nilage.mc
Gizmore: pls change the challenge description.

The sinowal bug needs more analysis, but you are right, it's gone...
