As always, there will also be a HITB CommSec Village and exhibition area set up on the conference days which will be FREE and OPEN TO PUBLIC and the HITB .my CTF Crew 3.0 has a brand new attack and defense Capture the Flag in store for all you pwnstars – CTF WMD: War of the World (WotW)!


The HITB CommSec Village is our new Community and Security area dedicated to highlighting various security related projects from the open source community and from various hackerspaces. These communities will have their own playground and demonstration area to show off their projects and a chance to interact with the conference attendees.


Sponsored once again by Trustwave Spiderlabs, CTF WMD: War of the World (referred to as WMD:WotW) will see teams given a ‘country’ which they’re required to protect their daemons represented by Government Centers (GC), Finance Centers (FC), and Business Centers (BC). They are also required to launch attacks against rival teams’ countries. Teams will also be given side challenges (from categories such as forensic, reversing, network analysis (pcap), steganography and cryptography) that can be accessed by solving daemons. Nukes that are capable of completely destroying a rival team’s daemon can be unlocked by solving bonus challenges.
