If we don't care about winning, maybe we should set up an EH-Net team (we'd probably win anyway ;) ).


I'd be game for that, same thing, don't care so much about winning, but would love to get the skills down a little.


Count me in, just signed up :)

So got the follow-up email about getting the class information on 10/23.  Looks like those taking the classes can team up for the CTF.  If you don't have a team he will put you in a group.  I assume you all are going to use your EH handles?

Re: Your First CTF (CTF for newbies)

not sure what name I'll be using yet. probably my regular handle. (rattis)

I haven't seen the email on how to access yet, but did get 2 emails on welcome to the ctf. I also know one of the security rookies that was working on the CTF, he said it's going to be fun.

Re: Your First CTF (CTF for newbies)

So, has anyone received the email detailing how to download the training material as yet?

Its well into the 23rd in the US now, 24th for me here in Oz.

Guess I'll shoot him an email and see whats happening.

Re: Your First CTF (CTF for newbies)

He sent out an email with a link to the CTF Training and the virtual machine.  He had a static web link with a username and password, as well as a dropbox link.  The VM was deleted from the dropbox share though, not sure if that was on purpose.  So you will be better off copying the stuff out of that share if you are using Dropbox.

Hi 3xban

How long ago did you receive it?

I haven't received a copy as yet, so just want an idea.

Re: Your First CTF (CTF for newbies)

Actually got the emails last night.  The Ubuntu VM was there this morning but was removed, probably because the size was over 1GB and not everyone has the space for that.

Re: Your First CTF (CTF for newbies)

Anyone else received the download details?

I sent Joe an email about 8 hours ago, and still haven't heard anything. (nothing in my Spam folder either)

Update: Finally received the emails, downloading now  ;D

Re: Your First CTF (CTF for newbies)

I got mine, including all the links to download stuff, on the 22nd (US, late at night). I spent the night after doing home work drinking wine going through the materials until 1am.

Re: Your First CTF (CTF for newbies)

hello all
I singed up for this course and got the download, but I might have missed or over looked something. I cant get into the the VM, I cant find the password for the strategicsec ubuntu user. Any help would be appreciated.
I emailed Joe the day I got the downloads but he has not returned my email yet. 

Thanks

Hi Lee

I had the same problem, but managed to find it by looking in one of the log files included in the download.

It is the same as the username, and the same password is used as your 'sudo' password.

Good luck
John

Re: Your First CTF (CTF for newbies)

This sounds like a really good idea I wish I had more time to attempt this.
