Packet Challenge – The Spy Hunter

I’ve concocted another packet challenge for you to try, entitled “The Spy Hunter”. This one’s a little different in that solving the technical challenge is only part of the solution – you’re going to have to conduct an investigation along the way, too. Maintain vigilance to detail and keep notes, and you’ll uncover all the secrets.

There’s a prize of a $15.00 Starbucks or iTunes card up for grabs for the writer of the best entry.

The challenge is posted over at; many thanks to Chris Christianson for giving it a home and putting up the prize.

Good luck, and have fun!
