As mentioned earlier this week, we have a very exciting announcement to share. One of the primary reasons we extended the deadline for the 2014 Volatility Plugin Contest to October 1st is due to an extremely generous donation from Facebook. Facebook's sponsorship doubles the total cash prizes from $2250 USD to $4500 USD!
As mentioned on the Volatility Tumblr: If you have already submitted to the contest, you can use this extra time to fine-tune your submission. If you were considering submitting, you now have an extra month to demonstrate your creativity and implement an innovative, interesting, and useful Volatility extension!
It’s great to see some of the largest companies in the world showing their support for and giving back to the memory forensics community! Thank you, Facebook, and good luck to all participants in the contest - the stakes have literally just doubled!
