They seem to have some issue with the registration there. It claims invalid username, whichever name I use.
Is this some sort of a challenge? :)
We have checked the information and identified that the error you mentioned occurs when username has fewer than 8 characters. Thanks for your report :D
Hi, when I tried to create a team, it shows "The group name cannot contain the following special The group name cannot contain the following special characters". Can you guys check that?
@seadog007 What is your group name?
@bteam "Come to Try Fortune", but I just register as "Come_to_Try_Fortune" because I didn't see anyone use space in the team list.
Oh, wait. Sorry about last reply, I didn't register yet. That's for another CTF.
Hello, I've received an email invitation from you but I can't register my team (dust); it shows me the "the group name is already in use" error. Can you help?
We sent invitation email to teams that participated in our previous Contests. This means your team has already existed on our wargame.whitehat.vn. You can use that account and allow more members to join in if you wish to do so. (Your Dust team was registered with username rkara***)
Oh, thank you. It seems we did register but didn't actually participate in the previous one. Please remove the possibility to register two accounts with the same email on your website, it was the source of confusion.
2 new challenges released

where is complete scoreboard plz ?
+1 sambecks. Could you upload complete scoreboard? Thanks.
@bteam Complete scoreboard please
I must say I strongly disapprove of messing with the players' systems as part of the Re002 challenge. WHITEHAT_CONTEST.exe tries to prevent IDA launch by changing its execution options in the registry and then disabling registry access. This is seriously bad form, even if meant as a joke or a lesson to careless participants.
@rkarabut I agree. They should at least put up a message box with an alert prior to messing with the system. From another perspective, you should always have UAC switched on, and always run CTF challenges in a sandbox or a virtualized environment. Binaries from good CTFs might be exceptions to this rule, but I definitely will not risk running anything from WhiteHat on my real system.
@Fish you certainly should, yes. Still, even prevented, this leaves a bad aftertaste.
