    Yes, I saw this as well - a bit pathetic isn't it? Is a competition cheaper than the usual recruitment process?

    The competition aims to find those with relevant analytical, forensic and programming skills using web-based games and challenges.
    It sounds like it might be fun though lol. Not the best idea for recruitment though is it?

    It's 'live' from tomorrow isn't it? I was thinking of having a go.

    BBC site reckons today but there's no link. It's worth a go just to see whether any real expertise is needed or whether it's going to be 'cracked' by umpteen l33t speaking teenagers within the first hour

    It'll be interesting to see if anyone gets bored and hacks the website instead?!
