Clone13 — aka Robert Thompson, a compliance officer at Bayview Solutions LLC — took the top honors and a $25 Amazon gift card for his hysterical, malware, ransoware-themed caption, penned below by cartoonist John Klossner. Robert is no stranger to the Dark Reading cartoon caption contest; he was runner-up in a contest in the fall of 2016. 

Second prize — a $10 Amazon gift card — goes to justanotherengineer for "Now THAT is Penetration Testing!"

Many thanks to everyone who entered the contest with all their clever puns and observations, and to our loyal readers who cheered the contestants on. Also a shout out to our judges, John Klossner, and the Dark Reading editorial team: Tim Wilson, Kelly Jackson Higgins, Sara Peters, Kelly Sheriden, Dawn Kawamoto, and yours truly.
