The competition will work in classic attack-defense fashion. Each team will be given a Vulnbox image to host itself and VPN access. You will run exploits against other teams, capture flags and submit them to our server.

The vulnbox decryption password will be released at 2019-05-25 13:00 UTC. The actual competition will start at 14:00 UTC and run for eight hours.


Thanks to our sponsors, we can again provide nice prize money:
  • First place: 512 €
