[Full-disclosure] speaking of code crunching... (challenge)

Gil Dabah (who did the cool code crunching on the unsupported systems
ZERT VML patch) just wrote some incredible code crunching. I don't
understand most of it.

The challange was to create a PE that downloads a file from the Internet
and executes it, which will be smaller than what his friends did. He got
to 411 bytes.

He intends to keep working on it to get to below 400 bytes, and posts a
sort of challenge to see if someone else can get there first (without,
say, making the URL shorter). :)

You can find the binary here:

You can find his blog entry on what he did to achieve this, and the
challenge, here:
