norway museum invites hackers

The Museum has an electronic archives protected by a password. Unfortunately, the person who knew the password died without revealing it to anyone. The Museum asked for assistance on national radio asking for assistance from anyone who might be able to help them crack the password. (via camworld)

[Enough responses have been pouring in to allow the museum's curator to pick and choose amongst the volunteers offering their assistance. And, Wired Magazine has a followup to this story, where the discussion switches to what a person could do to avoid the type of situation that happened at Norway's National Center of Language and Culture]
