First two security winners

January 28, 2008 15 comments

Our friends over at Blogoscoped, Philipp Lenssen and Tony Ruscoe, figured out the gallery # and account name for our security contest. They haven’t (yet?) managed to get the actual image. They’ve declined the $1000 bounty, but I’ve offered to donate the same amount, in their name, to the charity of their choice. Still waiting to hear back.

Tim Gosselin, on the other hand, managed to find a way to get a smaller version of the 3Mpix image. Kudos to Tim – clever hack.

Both bugs have already been fixed, I believe, and no-one has managed to get the original image thus far.

I’ve had to lower the bounty amount to $599.99 to avoid tax complications, but both Blogoscoped and Tim will be getting the full amount (or donating it or whatever they choose to do).

The contest is still on, so if you’d like to help us tighten our security, give it a shot. 🙂
