PHDays CTF - The final!

For two long days and all through the night 12 CTF teams from ten countries were engaged in tense battle. They faced many challenges: diving into garbage container in search for bonus flags, fighting sleep, taking control over a flying droid that was hovering across the lobby of the technocentre Digital October, and eliminating vulnerabilities in the online banking system attacked by the participants of Online HackQuest.

At the same time, CTF contestants had to hold down the territory they occupied in the King of the Hill competition, since winning the position was only the beginning, holding it down – that was the real challenge.

The struggle was tough from the first to the very last moment; several teams replaced one another in the leading position, and the final results are as follows:

1. The first place is taken by Leet More (Russia), who left the rivals far behind and found a 0-day vulnerability (local) in .

2. The second place is taken by 0daysober (Switzerland).

3. The third place is taken by Int3pids (Spain).

Last years winners from PPP were 4 this time.

Congratulations to the winners!
