The i5virus: A Game of Espionage and System i Security is a game developed by Bytware to get its name out there and perhaps liven up the days of System i administrators.
The mystery game, which started last month, offers contestants a chance to unravel the clues and win prizes such as an iPod and a Nintendo Wii. The story follows a fictional company whose System i server has been hacked into. Players follow clues by visiting different Web sites, watching videos on YouTube, and learning about PHP and i5/OS security. It’s a process that Bytware is hoping will lead you not only to the end of the game but also to its System i security software products.
The game begins with a YouTube video.
