Test your knowledge and skills (in fields like pentest, forensics, Social Engineering, WebSec, Reverse Engineering and other more) in order to solve challenges & win prizes and fame.


app2ownOrange Romania supports App2Own Bug Bounty Contest in order to test and improve the accuracy of their security solutions developed to protect the internet connection for companies. Orange is the only telecommunication operator from Romania that encourages vulnerability identification and responsible disclosure.
The competition goal is finding ways to bypass the security mechanisms. Basically, you can report and get points for any attack vector that bypasses the security infrastructure put in place in front of the target.
For instance, if you know that a target is vulnerable to SQL Injection, you will receive points if you find ways to bypass the firewall that should block this type of attack. Data exfiltration will score more points than a simple fingerprint.
All attendees are welcomed to join this competition.
