Capture Challenges

CloudShark 2015 Thanksgiving Capture Challenge

2 min read

Since we’ve launched CloudShark Online Accounts, we wanted to celebrate with a special Thanksgiving capture challenge. While most of us in the U.S. will be enjoying hefty helpings of turkey, mashed potatoes, and squash, a select few will be reveling in the magical wonder that is the “Turducken”.

Never heard of turducken? It’s exactly what it sounds like: a chicken, wrapped in a duck, wrapped in a turkey, filled with stuffing and sausage and baked to perfection. Since we think a lot about food and packets here at CloudShark, we thought it’d be great if we could give you a capture challenge that celebrated this wondrous food invention and let you exercise the use of our display filter autocomplete feature.

The Challenge

In this capture there’s a special packet that resembles a turducken with layers and layers of layer 4(ish) protocol goodness (hint: there’s at least 3). Your challenge is to find this packet and tweet or share a link to only that packet with a display filter that represents its many delicious components! The display filter will become part of the URL, so be sure to share the full URL that includes the display filters. You can read more about display filters and URLs in CloudShark here.

The capture:

Enjoy, and Happy Thanksgiving!
