Positive Hack Days CTF vol.2

During the Capture The Flag hacking contest at PHDays 2012 twelve teams from ten countries have been attacking the networks of other teams and protecting their own networks for two days and one night non-stop. The conditions were as close to real life as possible – no invented vulnerabilities, only those that occur in real contemporary information systems.

The infrastructure for the hacking battle was organized according to the principle of the King of the Hill game: the points were given not only for successful attacks against the systems, but also for keeping control over the systems, which made the contest more intriguing.

The contest became the highlight of the forum program, that is why an idea came to our minds… Why not to repeat the ‘royal battle’ separately for the Internet community, let us say, in the second half of August? The details are under the cut.
