Over 221 teams registered to play Puzzle #7: Ann’s Aurora at DEFCON 18 (2010)! Each team was given a CD which contained the evidence, and teams were asked to text the answer to the phone at NFPC Headquarters. The first team to text the correct answer won the contest.

The Winner of Puzzle #7 (and the shiny new iPad) was (drumroll…)

Team Bam Bam!

These guys solved the puzzle after about 5 hours. We also have to give mad props to team Preset Kill Limit, who texted the correct answer just one minute after team Bam Bam. Wow, that was close!

Great job to everyone!
