Hacking competition?
« on: January 13, 2009, 06:22:45 PM »
I spent the last week or so putting together a vulnerable network for a presentation/demo I'm doing next week. When I'm done, I was thinking of fixing up the demo a bit, making it a bit more interesting/challenging, then giving people access and seeing who can get to the end first.

Naturally, there'd be a prize for the person who got through it first.

If you'd be interested in doing it, post here (and get others to, as well ;) ). If at least 3-4 people are interested, I'll set it up.

It isn't insanely difficult, but it'd be an interesting challenge and requires the use of a few different tools.

Incidentally, I'm well aware that nobody doing this will be experts (or even amateurs), so I'll post a list of tools and some basic theories at the outset.

I'd definitely be interested to learn something.
It is good to be good, but it is better to be lucky.

So at least 4 people have shown some kind of interest (3 here + one more on AIM), so I'll definitely set this up. Don't expect it to be right away, though, but hopefully it'll be in the next couple months. :)

I'd bet that you're currently bloated like a water ballon on a hot summer's day.

That analogy doesn't even make sense.  Why would a water balloon be especially bloated on a hot summer's day? For your sake, I hope there wasn't too much logic testing on your LSAT.

Haha, it's not at all dead. I'll even go so far as to promise I'll set it up, eventually.

The presentation I was going to do got bumped due to the fact that I couldn't stop throwing up the day I was supposed to do it (damn flu!), so I'm not doing it till the 18th.

But here's the thing -- I'm moving before the end of April, at which point I'll be on a new connection on a new ISP. I'm also considering picking up some new hardware, so I could even dedicate the old server to this contest. Whatever the case, that stuff isn't going to happen till May.

I also need to learn how to use OpenVPN, so people participating can connect directly to my network and not get pwned by ISPs that do filtering. If anybody knows how already, let me know.

And yes, I've chosen a prize for the contest. :D
