Chaos Computer Club Event (32C3)
Posted by soulslayer - Wed Dec 23 2015 @ 12:05
Cat: Net-ForceThe poll revealed that the majority of the voters haven't heard of 32C3 / CCC.

32C3 is the upcoming event hosted by the Chaos Computer Club (CCC) in Hamburg.
Different hacker- and makerspaces will be participating in all kinds of events, different CTF teams will be participating in the CTF offered by the venue and of course lots of talks on all kinds of (often security) topics.

Sadly, the tickets are sold out, except for the day tickets. Luckily there's a livestream for you to enjoy and you can even participate in the CTF for free!

More info on Livestream:
Previous CTF (the challenges, scores):

Hope to see you soon in Hamburg! And for those not participating: Happy holidays!
Happy holidays!

New Challenge "Electronic Cook Book" and news update
Posted by soulslayer - Sat Sep 12 2015 @ 17:28
Cat: Net-ForceA new challenge is now online: "Electronic Cook Book", made by bagy!
I've placed it into the crypto section with a relevant weakness, so hack away :).

Thanks for the submission bagy!

As always, if any of you have a cool challenge idea: , feel free to look here for more information on that!

In other short news:
My employer has donated us a hypervisor and with room for about three machines with bandwidth.

This means NF will get a new home, away from shared webhosting, and we have some space to host fun remote pwnables / warbox. If you have any ideas for this on how to set this up, let me know!

[ Tutorials wanted! Dead or alive ]

Cat: Net-ForceSo I finally went through the Library section and came to the conclusion that reading an article would be as relevant as learning the Win95 manual. It reminds me of desktops filled with purple gorilla's on the lower right corner, browsers with a required minimum of at least 5 toolbars in it in order for it to be able to function and annakournika.exe. It also reminds me of bleeping modems, topspeeds of 15 kbyte/sec and Napster.

It's old. No, really, like pre-historic old.

The Top Vulnerability 2014
Posted by soulslayer - Fri Jan 9 2015 @ 21:57
Cat: Bugs2014 has been a year with a lot of big vulnerabilities.
A year where bugs got their own name and oftentimes logos to go with it.

What has been your top vulnerability? What bug has caused you the most stress? What rubble did you have to excavate after being hit by a bug?

Share your pick and anecdote.

If you miss any particular vulnerability: pm me and I'll add it!
