Mobile (In)security: Dark Reading Cartoon Caption Contest Winners

Clever word play on mobile ransomware, cloud and the Internet of Things. And the winners are ...

Wacky humor and clever word-play were on display – yet again - in Dark Reading’s latest cartoon caption contest. More than 100 of you submitted hysterical entries on topics ranging from mobile ransomware, cloud apps and a biblical reference to the Internet of Things.

So without further ado, kudos to our first-place winner BrookC827 for the winning caption, penned below by cartoonist John Klossner.

Honorable mentions – and there were too many to mention – and $10 Amazon gift cards go to two runners-up: binaryblogger, who in real life is Drew Koenig, a senior security solution architect at Magenic for "When I said we should throw the mobile apps in the cloud I didn't think they'd take me literally," and PsophosThey've had to update the Bible. It used to be a plague of locusts now it's the Internet of Things.”

Many thanks to everyone who entered the contest and to all our loyal readers who cheered the contestants on. Also a shoutout to our judges, John Klossner, and the Dark Reading editorial team: Tim Wilson, Kelly Jackson Higgins, Sara Peters, Kelly Sheridan, and yours truly. If you haven’t had a chance to read all the submissions, be sure to check them out today.
