PHDays Online HackQuest 2012
Posted by: s4avrd0w

The PHDays 2012 program will include Online HackQuest (, a competition for the Internet users that offers participants to try their hands at solving various information security tasks. On the forum’s second day, Online HackQuest participants will have a chance to influence the results of PHDays CTF 2012, an on-site contest.

For the competition, participants are provided with access to a VPN gateway. After connecting to it, the participants are to identify target systems and detect their vulnerabilities. If exploitation of a vulnerability is successful, the participant gains access to a key (a flag), which should be submitted to the jury via the form on the participant’s personal page. If the flag is valid, the participant gains the corresponding number of points.

All flags are in the MD5 format. The winner is the first participant to gain 100 points (which is the maximum possible amount). Participants who manage to gain more than 100 points are traditionally awarded with individual prizes :)

Participation Terms
Any Internet user is welcome to participate in the competition. The registration will open on the PHDays 2012 web site after the forum begins. Moreover, the Online HackQuest will also be available for out-of-competition participation during 14 days after PHDays 2012.

Positive Technologies (the PHDays organizers) and the sponsors of the forum provide prizes and gifts for the competition.

Technical Details
The participation requires Internet connection and a possibility to establish connection to a VPN gateway via PPTP or IPSec.
