Get Rich Quick? Inspired by last year's $10,000 Macintosh Web server security challenge (see TidBITS-317), Sweden's Joakim Jardenberg is conducting a Macintosh Web server "Crack a Mac" challenge. From 10-Feb-97 through 10-Apr-97, Joakim is offering a cash prize to anyone who can alter the contents of the home page on a standard Macintosh Web server set up for the contest running WebSTAR 2.0. The prize this time is 10,000 Swedish crowns (about $1,350 U.S.), but it's worth noting that no one claimed the prize from last year's challenge. Perhaps the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, whose Web pages were recently cracked, should think about hosting them on Macintosh servers. [GD]
