Hello Reader,
     We have now officially entered the last month of my year of blogging, let's make sure we end it well. It's Sunday and that means it's time for another challenge you can spend your day on but let's change the rules a bit to give you a bit more time to do so while still allowing me to declare a winner, and write a blog post about it, on Monday. If you watched the Forensic Lunch on Friday you heard Lee Whitfield talk about the current Trucrypt conspiracy. Let's test your malware analysis skills in this weeks challenge.

The Prize(s):
A guest post on the blog to raise your visibility
A $250 Amazon Gift Certificate, emailed to you anywhere in the world
A $250 Newegg Gift Certificate, emailed to you anywhere in the world

The Rules:
  1. You must post your answer before Monday 6/2/14 7PM CST (GMT -5)
  2. The most complete answer wins
  3. You are allowed to edit your answer after posting
  4. If two answers are too similar for one to win, the one with the earlier posting time wins
  5. Be specific and be thoughtful 
  6. Anonymous entries are allowed, please email them to dcowen@g-cpartners.com. Please state in your email if you would like to be anonymous or not if you win.
  7. In order for an anonymous winner to receive a prize they must give their name to me, but i will not release it in a blog post

The Challenge:
Download the latest release of Truecrypt here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/truecrypt/files/TrueCrypt/TrueCrypt-7.2.exe/download and perform an analysis of the binaries to determine what besides decrypting files it is doing.
