Network forensics adventures

Another year has passed. Mr Anderson is still working for NeoCorps.

But when Mr Anderson clocks out of his regular job, he’s working on some projects on the side.

He created and sold some apps to some shady people. Now, the agents are on his tail.

They’ve tasked you to look at some of the network traffic and understand what some of those files are actually doing.


The competition is graded as a Beginner friendly activity. Prior experience working with network packets could be an advantage.
