Write up: 2015 Sans Holiday Hack Challenge – Part 3

Introduction

San Institute regularly creates a Christmas holiday hack challenge.

These challenges are a good way to try out new techniques or grow your knowledge in some new area.

As I get time to tackle the challenges I will write up my solution, frustrations and share any techniques that may come in handy for future challenges.
