King of the Camp

Tired of events where you “just” need to find vulnerabilities and exploit targets?

Well, how about a competition where you need to find vulnerabilities, patch them, defend the infrastructure against other players and capture the flags? All in 90 minutes. Sounds crazy? No, it’s just King of the Camp.

Goal of the Competition

/ Learn and exploit vulnerabilities

/ Patch vulnerabilities

/ Learn how to escalate privileges or pivot to other users

/ Learn how to maintain access while other players will try to block you

/ Learn how to automate tasks to capture and maintain the target

/ Be King of the Camp


/ The competition will have rounds of 90 minutes for the entire period of the event

/ You can join in any of the rounds

/ You will get points for static flags that can be received once you access any of the users from the machine

/ Each round will have up to 30 checks, in each check, we will look for a file called “/root/king”, owned by root. If your cyberedu-uuid (you can find it on your profile page) is in this file, you receive extra points. 

/ Be sure to invite your friends to make the experience even better
