The Empire Hacks Back Challenge: Test Your Windows Command-Line Kung Fu
After a far-too-long hiatus, I'm back in the challenge writing swing of things, with a brand new hacking scenario for you to solve.
Without further adieu, I am happy to present...
In this challenge, you get to match wits with a bot-net-wielding Darth Vader, exercising some serious Windows command-line Kung Fu to save the Millennium Falcon and our heros from certain doom!  You are our only hope.

Compose your answers, send them into, and win a fine prize.  Even if you cannot answer them all, send in what you can answer, because we'll be awarding three prizes.  The best technical answer wins, as does the most creative technically correct answer.  But, we'll also give a prize to a single winner drawn at random from all partially correct answers.  So, if you can only answer one or two of the questions, go for it!  You still might win.

By the way, if you like these challenges, I've got 16 other movie-themed challenges for you

And finally, if you really like the challenges, I'm happy to also announce that other ISC and related folks are going to start writing one every other month.  Mike Poor will be writing a Tarantino-themed challenge for early July release.  Then, Jay Beale will do one for September.  Then, Tom "My-Spyware-Will-Be-Released-Next-Week" Liston will write one for November.  And, I'll do a Christmas-themed one at the end of the year.  Fun, fun, fun!
