Crack Proof -- In TidBITS-365, we noted the two-month "Crack A Mac" challenge being held in Sweden, offering a cash prize to anyone able to change the contents of a Web page running on a standard Mac OS Web server. The prize money eventually rose to over U.S. $13,000, but no one claimed the prize by the contest deadline of 10-Apr-97 - though not for lack of trying! The challenge's coordinators have posted a summary of the contest results and various break-in attempts made on the contest server, including some clever (and amusing) social-engineering attempts to make the contest coordinators to change the Web page themselves.
