This is a test. This is only a test. The folks behind the book WebMaster Macintosh have set up a contest to determine how secure Macintosh web servers really are. They've put up a Web site running WebSTAR with a "target" file that contestants must try to retrieve. The first person to retrieve the file wins a year's subscription to MacTech Magazine and a free pass to the next WebEdge conference, and the next two people receive free WebEdge passes. If the challenge of breaking WebSTAR's security isn't sufficient, there's a second Mac connected to the first via Ethernet. This second Mac doesn't run TCP/IP, only AppleTalk, and holds a second target file; retrieving it wins you three free WebEdge passes. The hope is that these tasks will prove impossible, however, should someone break in, that's also useful since it will help StarNine and Apple plug security holes.
