RuCTF Finals 2017
We participated in the RuCTF Finals 2017 and finished 12th.
Last Sunday we had the pleasure to participate in the RuCTF Finals 2017 in Yekaterinburg, Russia.
After a long day of attacking other teams and defending our own services we managed to secure the 12th place out of 23 active teams.
The services we had to work on were really interesting and quite diverse. But a really nice touch to the game was the actual hardware separation of services. Instead of providing a virtual machine with all services running on (like is usually the case for Attack/Defense CTFs), this time we got provided with a stack of Orange Pi Zeroes. One for each service.
But the CTF was only one of the fun parts. Beforehand, there was a really interesting conference.
Although the talks were generally in russian, the organizers provided a live translation to english for teams from abroad.
We also met a lot of interesting guys from other teams, and had a great night at the CTF's afterparty. ;)
Thanks again to SBA Research for providing us with funding to travel to the competition.
We participated in the iCTF 2015 and finished 8th.
Last Friday we participated in this year's iCTF. For the first time the services were not written by the organizers, but each team had to provide a service themselves in order to participate. Although this meant that there were fewer teams this year, still 30 teams took up the challenge in total. The organizers also got some angry comments for this setup, and they liked one of them so much that their unofficial theme...
We participated in the hack.lu CTF and finished 45th.
The past two days we were busy hacking in the hack.lu CTF. The challenges by fluxfingers were superb as always, and we solved quite some of them. Kudos to the top three teams, what a photo finish! You can find the scoreboard here....

Finished 3rd at iCTF2014
In this years iCTF2014-2015, themed "hacking at scale", we reached the 3rd place out of more than 80 participating universities.
Last Friday we participated in the ictf2014 and reached the 3rd place out of more than 80 participating universities. This years theme was "hacking at scale" with 42 services to pwn, most of which had been reused from previous iCTF's. We constantly improved our score during the CTF until we were at the second place about one hour before the end with only Team Bushwhackers in front of us. However, SpamAndHex did an incredible...
