Malware Challenge Results

After longer than I would have liked, the malware challenge results are in and posted!

There were alot of great submissions but unfortunately, we could only choose so many to receive prizes. In the end, we looked at the ones we felt gave the most information, presented it the best and would allow someone to learn from their paper.

Some quick stats on the challenge, we had over 900 downloads of the malware sample. Fortunately, we didn't have that many submissions. Most of the hits on the site came from the US, followed by Romania and Russia. Also, over 50% of the hits on the site were from Firefox!

I'd like to send a thank you to all the sponsors who donated prizes. Without them, we would not have been able to have such a great turnout. We're already thinking about the 2009 Challenge!

Any suggestions on how we could have done better? Send them our way!
