Breakable or not, this now becomes a good indication of how a Linux
system can be considerably hardened with little effort: the package
that provides the jailing environment for the execution of arbitrary
codes weighs less than 200K, including documentation.
And I am confident that the challenge will stay intact much longer.
Re: Sysmask security challenge report: 4 months and 7000 arbitrary code executions, still intact.
I'm not taking a position on whether your software is secure, but have
you read Bruce Schneier's piece on cracking contests?
It mainly applies to crypto challenges, but I think it applies fairly
well to your challenge, as well. I'd be more prone to publicize any
comments people have made about the sysmask code itself, since you've
made it available under the GPL.
