Hackers vs. Forensics — 1:0 for the Black Hats?

We have already written that two competitions taking place at the moment enable contestants to gain invitations to the Positive Hack Days 2012 forum — Blow up the Town and Hackers vs. Forensics. The winners of the competitions will get tickets to PHDays (1st place — 5 tickets, 2nd place — 3 tickets, 3rd place — 2 tickets).

The forum enjoys great popularity — the registration that took place on May 14 was closed in 8 minutes when the maximum number of participants was achieved. That means that extra invitations will certainly be of use.

The Blow up the Town competition attracted a lot of participants who have been actively competing for several days already. The current rating can be checked on the official web site of PHDays 2012.


There is a different situation in the Hackers vs. Forensics competition, in the course of which every participant has an opportunity to try on both the black and the white hat. The ‘Hackers’ have provided only one image of an operating system with an implanted Trojan up to now, and there is still no correct answer on the Trojan’s main functions and key activity mechanisms from the ‘Forensic Experts’.

So the ‘Hackers’ lead the race at the moment, and if the situation remains the same the only person dared to provide this infected image will well earn all 10 invitations.

The competition will last up to May 25, and everybody has a chance to obtain an invitation to the forum. Information on the participation as a ‘Forensic Expert’ is available in detail on the PHDays official web site.
