I haven’t been to DefCon before and obviously haven’t participated in the CTF. How does their CTF work? From what I have been reading is that the teams have to attack custom services, right? Are they given the source code as well?
I haven’t competed in the finals at DefCon, I did the qualifiers this year with some folks from Midnight Research Labs. I gotta say, win, loose, or draw it was a lot of fun. I hope to do the qualifiers again this year. I have been working on my RE/Exploit skillz, but I’m not sure I know I have ways to go.
