Millions of votes are about to be changed!
In six days Chad Davis will testify before Congress on the security, stability, and safety of Advice Software Inc's e-vote software. He is a world-renowned expert on software security, and his testimony will determine if the software will be implemented for use during the 2004 United States Presidential Elections.
After his speech at an RSA conference in Amsterdam, he is handed a cryptic CD with information on the software from notorious hacker Baff Lexicon. Davis and his friend from the FBI must use their knowledge of buffer overflows, format string vulnerabilities and zero-day exploits to penetrate physical and cyber defenses, ultimately uncovering Advice's plot to fix the US presidential elections.
Hack Along. You may win a free pass to Black Hat USA 2005. *
Want to get involved? Embedded in the plot of The Mezonic Agenda is a fully interactive game that tests your security and hacking skills. Decrypt the contents of the book and CD, then manipulate the mock election results to elect yourself President of The United States. Election will be held in early 2005.
What's on the CD?
The CD contains just three files, but they literally hold the key to the election. Successful decryption reveals more files, bringing you ever-closer to hacking the Presidency. The first clue simply reads:
"For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry."
