Every year the hacking community, both black and whitehat, come together in Las Vegas for the annual Blackhat and Defcon conferences. We discuss new attacks, show interesting research, release tools, and let loose a bit. Defcon in particular centers around a number of great competitions, the most prestigious of them being the Defcon Capture The Flag.
Hacker teams from all over the world participate in the CTF qualifiers. This year 535 teams registered, 265 of which scored points. The top 10 play in the CTF event in Las Vegas at the conference. Think of it as a hacker superbowl.
This year we threw a team together, six guys (feakk, myself(@jhaddix),@OwNpile , @ap3r , @fulg0re , @timmedin), who had a few hours on the weekend to check out the game. Only a few of us had played before, but one of our team members won with Shellphish back a few years ago.
Below is the scoreboard format and links to the solutions that have been posted on the web (in English so far). It’s a jeopardy style point game, the higher the points, the harder the question. We placed 66th as team dirty_apes =) We had a great time and hopefully will get to spend the full 3 days to hack next year.
