Zone-H Hacking Challenge

Filed under: Zone-H Hacking Challenge — Administrator @ 5:28 pm

July 12, 2005

Zone-H in colaboration with the Hack in The Box crew will organize a web-based hackgame at HITBSecConf2005 in which participants will be challenged to try to beat the hackgame in the shortest possible time. The hackgame rules are fairly simple. There is a central server offering an online hackgame which is developed along three different levels. The three levels are of increasing difficulty, all of them can be beaten just using a simple web browser so there will be no need to bring your own exploits or your own laptop. Each participant has a limited amount of time to beat all three levels; upon completion of each level a separate scoring mechanism will assign to the participant some points based on a time-mission scheme.

All the participants will be rewarded with some gifts. Beating the first level will grant the participant a Zone-H keystrap, beating the second level will win you an exclusive Zone-H Exploit Repository CD, beating the third level will grant you the beautilful Zone-H t-shirt. Finally, the best three hackers (fastest time) will win a free Hands on Hacking seminar seat (to be held in Kuala Lumpur in cooperation with Hack in The Box in 2006). Are you ready for the challenge?
