Fire-Eye pleased to announce the conclusion of the fifth annual Flare-On Challenge. The numbers are in and we can safely say that this was by far the most difficult challenge we’ve ever hosted. We plan to reduce the difficulty next year, so it may be that the 114 people who solved this year’s challenge solved not only the most difficult Flare-On to date, but the most difficult Flare-On there ever will be. 

WARNING! Some of these challenges may be malicious. Exercise extreme caution when executing unknown code. Be safe and perform the analysis inside of a virtual machine.
