'Most Wonderful' is part of the official soundtrack for the 2017 SANS Holiday Hack Challenge. Hack all the things and help save the North Pole at holidayhackchallenge.com/2017/


[Verse 1]

Behold the tragic glory of this active allegory
Before we, begin, let the music do the magic for me

A back story here to pre-date the fac-tories
It’s like another world, can’t even equate the category

Feeling overwhelmed now the service in denial
Analysts reporting the attack is in the wild

Given difference, ready and you’ll witness
Something in the system, got us hunting down persistence

Return oriented when we pop from the stack
Dual Core on the track for this holiday hack

The forecast maps show the weather’s supposed to stay clear
But when I look outside, it seems like it’s about to rain dear

Dashing through the wet snow
With increased crescendo, the story getting exposed

A jolly fellow with a red coat and ten toes
Led by the red nose, the crew the makes the sled go

[Verse 2]

See one bad actor can ruin your show
Rap morse code to defend the North Pole

Got the shark wire set, should we wall fire yet
Still investigating, call it insider threat

Now these things tend to go hand in hand
In snowman’s land, with his old bro Sam

Starting snowball fights, these deer go H.A.M.
Got a large port scan then you should show Dan (shodan)

Success is defined by the drive to fail or practice
The operation seeks to sustain the tailored access

Alone with the tome that we call the Great Book
Trying to determine just how much that they took

Got on-call support just to prove we ain’t shook
The schism’s so criminal, more like the Great Crook

Open eyes, point them upward to the sky
‘Cause reindeer aren’t the only animals that fly, so pretty

[Verse 3]

Now this path’s not here just to detour the challenge
Let’s track this attack so we restore the balance

Attribute to incompetence what can’t be to malice
The source could be a workshop, might even be a palace

Who’s to say which (witch), don’t go picking sides
Gather all the evidence, sort it, and decide

Add it all up, check sums if they collide
Clear your expectations in case of a surprise

The true thoughts of Rudolph helped connect a few dots
Hip hop for the anthem, insured it with a blue cross

A breach with a true cost wrongfully determined
Alternate realities might have a different version

Documenting details so the knowledge isn’t lost
With these digital forensics and incident response

Keep investigating, fight the good fight
Happy holidays to all, and to all a goodnight
