tasks for the security neophytes

I was browsing around somewhat randomly and came across this little list of challenges for people looking to get into security. Kind of a cheesy thought, but then I started reading the tasks and really liked them. Some get old school, but damned if security pros really should be exposed to some old school things like IRC or email via telnet.

If you know someone who is looking to get into security a bit more, these are very basic and useful tasks to give them. Even a tech geek that hasn’t had an interest in security should find some of these tasks horizon-expanding.
