little prank failed

my little prank that I played on ism’s ftp has been recognized. for the web designing competition of acm each of the participants are provided 75MB sized directory.(using usrquota option in vsftpd probably) they have given random user names to each participant, ironically password is same as the user name. as they are random they thought that ‘nothing to fear’. it is completely predictable that all the participants directories(directory names are again matching with user names) are placed in same directory(ismdhanbad.ac.in/acm). their mistake is that they kept (ismdhanbad.ac.in/acm) directory as open(not now- now they are redirecting), which means that i can watch over all the user names of the participants. bingo that’s how i played a little prank over it. but now i am in doubt that how can one set-up a redirection scheme like that. i will ask someone if i get the chance.
