I first met Professor Banas:
Hi, I'm Dr. Banas, professor of Cheerology at Elf University.
This term, I'm teaching “HOL 404: The Search for Holiday Cheer in Popular Culture,” and I've had quite a shock!
I was at home enjoying a nice cup of Gløgg when I had a call from Kent, one of my students who interns at the Elf U SOC.
Kent said that my computer has been hacking other computers on campus and that I needed to fix it ASAP!
If I don't, he will have to report the incident to the boss of the SOC.
Apparently, I can find out more information from this website https://splunk.elfu.org/ with the username: elf / Password: elfsocks.
I don't know anything about computer security. Can you please help me?
Oh, thanks so much for your help! Sorry I was freaking out.
I've got to talk to Kent about using my email again…
…and picking up my dry cleaning.
Next I spoke to Sparkle Redberry who was in charge of the Xmas Cheer Laser
I'm Sparkle Redberry and Imma chargin' my laser!
Problem is: the settings are off.
Do you know any PowerShell?
It'd be GREAT if you could hop in and recalibrate this thing.
It spreads holiday cheer across the Earth …
… when it's working!
Terminal Challenge Xmas Cheer Laser
You got it - three cheers for cheer!
For objective 5, have you taken a look at our Zeek logs?
Something's gone wrong. But I hear someone named Rita can help us.
Can you and she figure out what happened?
From here, I went back to The Quad
