🏁👀🚧🎁📵 Unleash your creativity in the Hacking Village at DefCamp!

defcamp hacking village 2019 update

Can you believe it’s almost November? 🙀

Just one month from now we’ll be opening the doors to the biggest DefCamp yet!

The community response to this year’s conference has been overwhelming which makes us even more excited (and nervous) to get to share it with you all.

DefCamp is not just about debating research and unpacking malware. It’s also about walking the talk and trying out different methods to break through, so you can then go back to the system and secure it.

You’ll have plenty of opportunities to do that in the DefCamp Hacking Village!

Here’s a taste of what you can have fun with this year to either gain experience or prizes (or both)!

DefCamp CTF

On September 7, 500 teams from 73 countries tested their offensive and defensive skills to solve the D-CTF challenges!

🏆 We announced the teams coming to Bucharest to fight for supremacy in the DefCamp CTF sponsored by Orange Romania and Bit Sentinel!

The organizing team is hard at work to create even more challenging tasks for the grand finale!

Brainpick CTF

What happens to our identities both online and offline is becoming crucial for every other aspect of our lives, from work to personal affairs.

As Black Mirror and 1984 are becoming reality, profiling someone only requires perseverance.

Do you have what it takes to abuse OSINT tools and win the Brainpick CTF?

The Brainpick CTF sponsored by BSides Bucharest is the perfect opportunity to test your… online research skills!

The Hacking Village at DefCamp will be packed with challenges!

It’s one in particular we’re always keen to run: the Wifi PWNED Board! 😎

This real-time demonstration of risks that emerge when trusting wireless connections is sponsored by  Orange Romania and gives us good reason to leave our phones and other devices somewhere (in a) safe.

EA – Lazy Dave

Dave, Dave, Lazy Dave

Don’t you know leaving a backdoor on the main title server to do some remote work is a big misstep?

I guess one of you DefCamp participants must find it, so we can get it patched!

Now, it’s true Dave stashed some game keys for EA titles there… And you know what they say, right? Finders, keepers!

This Electronic Arts supported challenge is bound to give gamers a reason to dig deep!
