MWR InfoSecurity is sponsoring the Capture the Flag (CTF) hacking challenge at this year’s 44CON event.
Taking place in London next week at the ILEC Conference Centre in West Brompton, the 2014 CTF event has been designed and run by the 44Con Networking team and will focus on both infrastructure and application security flaws. The game will consist of pre-registered qualifiers and 44CON ticket-holders and the winner will be crowned “2014 MWR Labs 44CON CTF Champion”.
During the CTF event, each team must keep their system online and services available to score ‘defensive’ points. They must attack vulnerable services on adversary systems to steal their ‘flags’ and score ‘attack’ points. Bonus points are also available for well-formed and verbose vulnerability advisories. For extra credit, they’ll be bringing back a couple of vulnerable systems from the previous three CTF events -in hopes that someone can break them this time ’round!
