Meganet Corporation


The challenge is over!
Crack the code and win $100,000.

In this challenge, Meganet Corporation offered $100,000 to the one who can crack the code (get the encrypted file here). The challenge was to break into a file encrypted with our proprietary technology, Virtual Matrix Encryption.

Virtual Matrix Encryption, or VME, is the industry's only commercially available, unbreakable encryption engine.  Utilizing a combination of Virtual Matrices and a 1 Million-bit symmetric key, VME is impervious to brute force attacks.

The term of the challenge was from 9:00am October 24, 2000 through 12:00pm December 31, 2000 Standard Pacific Time.  During this term of the challenge, challengers were provided with a VME-encrypted file and were encouraged to attempt to decipher it.  Should a challenger was successful in deciphering the VME-encrypted file, short of illegally acquiring the password and should the challenger was the first to submit proof of deciphering the VME encrypted file, that challenger was to be awarded a prize of $100,000 USD. (for full details on Rules and Regulations click here!).

The $100,000 prize was backed by London Underwriters through ASU Enterprises, LLC, an independent third party that had the VME encrypted file, passwords and cash prize. 

ASU administered and oversaw the challenge.
The solution was to be e-mailed to ASU

In the description below we will walk you through the decipherment of the encrypted file with the correct passwords.
To recreate the decryption process correctly, you will need our shareware version

The shareware version is restricted for US only, if you are not in the US please do not fill in the form.

The Solution: 
Assuming that your "My Documents" folder is on your C:\ drive,
1- Download the encrypted file and save as challenge.vme in your "My Documents" folder. 
2-Download the configuration file and save as challenge.cfg in your "My Documents" folder.
3- Open the VME shareware application (2-23-01VME00X32.EXE), go to "Advanced" mode, and apply all passwords as per screen shot.
4- Click "Decrypt" and find a new file in your "My Documents" folder called: "challenge.gif" - That's the solution.
