Igor & Kaspars are returning winners from previous Khallenge competitions (1) (2). Great job guys!

Alexander Polyakov, "Lancert", "push.ret", "Hellspawn", V. Usatyuk, "Piotras", "ASMax"

Level 1 contains a hidden message, here are the winners:
1. Alexandru Maximciuc (t-shirt)
2. Volodymyr Pikhur (t-shirt)
3. Richard Baranyi (t-shirt)

On a personal note, while designing the challenges I've been wondering if level 2 was too difficult. The statistics have proved that it was. However, according to your responses, it was great fun! I'm glad to hear that many people enjoyed it. Next year though, we'll aim to get the challenges into a bit better balance. ;-)

The Khallenge.com website will be online until the 12th of August. After that, you'll be able to get the files directly form our security center website: http://www.f-secure.com/security_center/asm.html
