samuirai – Feb. 9, 2017, 4:13 p.m.

We won the Pragyan CTF 2016 where they also promised a 1000$ price pool (google cache:https://ctf.pragyan.org/);
After the event they offered us 500$ in bitcoin and asked for our address, but we never received anything.

Would not play again.


Dacat – Feb. 14, 2017, 4:02 a.m.

Agree with samuirai. We won 3rd place in Pragyan 2016 and they did not pay us either. We followed up for 6 months eventually they just ignored us. Avoid this org.


gnx – Feb. 17, 2017, 2:31 p.m.

We finished in second place in the first edition, and we never received the awards.


ricks2600 – Feb. 17, 2017, 2:53 p.m.

We also didn't receive our prize.


luoyi – Feb. 18, 2017, 10:47 a.m.

we toooo


S3KAR – Feb. 25, 2017, 9:14 p.m.

Hey Guys,
Sorry, It happened that way. We will check into the administration and solve it ASAP.
We also make sure that it won't go that way this year.
Do participate this year too.


8an4nam1ni0n – Feb. 26, 2017, 7:10 p.m.

The page is broken


S3KAR – Feb. 27, 2017, 2:32 p.m.

Its up now :)


_CryptoCat – Feb. 28, 2017, 12:12 p.m.

Registration for this was ridiculous.. It makes it look like you register individual users rather than team and then by the time you are signed up your individual username is the team name.. For this reason I had to create a second account, with a different email address. To make it worse, you login with the email address rather than the team name so everybody in the team must remember one members email address instead of the team name they always use for login... If the rest of the CTF is so poorly designed I won't be impressed..


Lumen – March 1, 2017, 3:59 a.m.

Also doesn't update the cities or states based on the country...


havocmage – March 1, 2017, 5:15 a.m.

Registration form....who thought that was a good idea?


milkchoco – March 2, 2017, 5:23 a.m.

I think the UI is a bit slow. Can I use a simple version for UI?


milkchoco – March 2, 2017, 5:24 a.m.

And is there a IRC channel? I didn't see the notice on main so I emptied the referral code, sry.


milkchoco – March 2, 2017, 5:26 a.m.

Ah, sry. only regstration window was slow..


sherl0ck – March 2, 2017, 7:25 a.m.

Organisers , Please create an IRC channel.


SpyD3r – March 2, 2017, 7:28 a.m.

IRC channel??


S3KAR – March 2, 2017, 8:47 a.m.

Sorry guys, We don't have an IRC channel as of now.
But you can use this forum[1] as of now for queries.

[1] : https://pragyan.org/forum/categories/pragyan-ctf


t_r3x – March 2, 2017, 9:20 a.m.

A forum for asking queries? poorly organized CTF.
Haven't yet played in a CTF without a IRC channel


_x90 – March 2, 2017, 11:43 a.m.

No IRC channel, and the first challenge of binary isnt working, the flag identified doesnt work tried loads of things... get an IRC channel on freenode #pragyanctf come on guys.


hanto – March 2, 2017, 1:41 p.m.

come hang out on #pragyanctf on freenode


g30l4d0 – March 2, 2017, 4:34 p.m.

Hey , your CTF just have two categories : GUESSING & STEG


kara71 – March 3, 2017, 12:38 a.m.

This CTF is the fucking worst


pr1vate – March 3, 2017, 2:02 a.m.

How the fuck is there no CTF standardization put in place yet to avoid shit like this? And the CTF registration form reminded me of shitty visual basic 3.0 forms from the fucking 90s... tighten up. (also, dont EVER offer money if you are not willing to pay)


lolpragyanctfisshit – March 3, 2017, 2:24 a.m.

Don't waste your time on this so called "ctf". There was no effort put into creating this ctf, looks like they spent 5 minutes creating this ctf. It can't get any worse than this, this was a joke.


g30l4d0 – March 3, 2017, 3:40 a.m.

Ban a CTF is doable ?


Pharisaeus – March 3, 2017, 9:15 a.m.

I think you all should check out https://github.com/ctftime/ctftime.org/issues/40 and maybe join the discussion on how to rate CTFs this year ;)


pprotector – March 4, 2017, 12:06 a.m.

I do not know why they offer money if they will NEVER pay. For me, WORST ctf ever. ALL categories are guessing.


noraj – March 4, 2017, 2:46 p.m.

forencics are stegano, web are always down, there is no irc, just don't play this shit.


Ds3c – March 5, 2017, 8:45 a.m.

good


madHatter – March 5, 2017, 10:19 a.m.

To noraj. Web100 intended to give 404. But ctf wasn't that good at all.. Its all about guessing flags. Crypto is bad..


ValarDragon – March 5, 2017, 1:53 p.m.

This was a poorly designed CTF. The challenges were mostly based upon guessing, and there was no IRC channel. The crypto was also bad.


uafio – March 5, 2017, 10:42 p.m.

I'm starting a coalition, it's called "Let's help Delta Force NIT stop making CTFs" who is with me ?


shombo – March 5, 2017, 10:52 p.m.

Admins are argumentative, challenges are trash, the whole thing is a frustrating waste of time. If there's a way for ctftime to ban these guys, I'd be pretty happy about it. When I asked a friend if he was playing, he replied with "sorry, I don't play lotto." I should have listened to him.


rh0gue – March 5, 2017, 10:54 p.m.

I've never even played in a Delta Force NIT organized CTF before, but I, too, am upset. Time to break out the torches and pitchforks!


rad – March 5, 2017, 11:14 p.m.

I am canadian and even I am unpleased with this ctf to the level that I come and comment in here. Sorry, thank you.


elliptic_shiho – March 6, 2017, 5:12 a.m.

I was surprised at the high quality of the esper challenge. This is the best Guessing CTF, so you should not make a normal challenge anymore.


solarwind – March 6, 2017, 12:14 p.m.

LOL, why you all no like it? I highly recommend this event to everyone, who thinks that CTFs are OK without infosec background, and there are some usefull "CTF playing/problem solving skills" other than infosec. Go try this, "problem solving CTF" at its finest.

I'm seriously recommend to preserve this CTF as exhibit of large class of events, and use as ethalon of such. The ROFL part is that this is one of the oldest indian ctfs available -- one of our members won it in 2011 (still waiting for prizes). Prizes delivery however depends on year -- we won in 2015 and received in 3 month (a whopping 210$)


Pharisaeus – March 6, 2017, 1:39 p.m.

Some people want to remove/ban this CTF for low quality, and yet dcua votes this at 25p. Who to believe? :D


gnx – March 6, 2017, 1:48 p.m.

solarwind, you are kidding me? You defending this shit is so ridiculous. The last straw, don't fuck with my patience!


CaioLuders – March 6, 2017, 1:49 p.m.

We dont fall for baits solarwind.


adrianoribeiro – March 6, 2017, 4:16 p.m.

Terrible!!!


solarwind – March 6, 2017, 5:20 p.m.

Pharisaeus: no one to believe, try thinking yourself. In case you are still on position that CTF trains "problem solving skills" and may be done without infosec as you were telling everyone on that github thread above -- this is how CTFs will look like. See the problem, or need more explanations?

gnx: LOL, you are free to go fuck yourself. Then relax, we are in democratic society, and everyone have a right to speech, have own opinion etc.


gnx – March 6, 2017, 5:54 p.m.

Fuck your opinion, everybody knows that dcua just wins easy and/or guessing CTFs, that's why you loves so much this kind of shit! ;)


solarwind – March 6, 2017, 6:38 p.m.

LOL, what prevented you from winning -- CTFs are open, easy (as you said), and you played in all of them too (I checked https://ctftime.org/team/9061)


Pharisaeus – March 6, 2017, 6:42 p.m.

@solarwind the only problem I can see is that you can't read or you don't understand what is written :) We were arguing that CTFs are something particular and not exactly the same as pentesting/malware analysis etc. It's just a different kind of thing. But there is a difference between that, and "guessing games". We just said that sudoku is not the same thing as a crossword puzzle, and you're claiming this automatically means we consider doodling in a notebook the same as crossword puzzle. Not much logic here I'm afraid.

Anyway, no point in arguing, it's just the same as it was last year with some teams (I won't point fingers). If someone can't win (or get anywhere close to the top) any serious CTF (like just lately BKP, InsomniHack Quals, 33C3 or SECCON Quals) then they need to upvote any shit-tier CTF they manage to finish high. It's their right to do so :)


solarwind – March 6, 2017, 7:06 p.m.

Phariseus: No, stop. The point of that discussion was -- my claim that CTFs must have infosec background, and are useful for infosec education. Others skills developed with them are useless. Opponents point were that CTFs are not related to IRL infosec, and train "problem solving skills", without defining which one. This CTF is example of what is CTF without infosec. This is pure "problem solving skills" -- what it means in practice. If you dont agree, define what is "problem solving skills" and give example of good CTFtime CTF without infosec tasks.

I will point a finger -- lets see example of BreakIn CTF. You and StR were arguing last year that it is good, with IRL tasks, claiming that opponents are giving bad reviews because they not won it. It even got rating weight https://ctftime.org/event/288 . OK, congrats, we will try next year -- http://pastebin.com/mWyifns8 . Tasks level and organization are exactly the same, but no drama this time https://ctftime.org/event/418, not IRL, LOL? No top ctf anymore?


gnx – March 6, 2017, 7:15 p.m.

solarwind, In CTFs with tough challenges, your team passes *away* from the top, and *cries hard*! Pwn2Win 2016 sends souvenirs! ;D

And you think we're playing all CTFs with all our members/strength? hahaha, makes me laugh bro!


Pharisaeus – March 6, 2017, 7:24 p.m.

@solarwind we were arguing that it should get 5p instead of 0. There was never any discussion on it being "top" or "great". It was just not terrible enough to get 0, because as I pointed out there were a couple of normal tasks there. This year there was no scoreboard sent to ctftime, so what kind of drama did you expect? If the organizers don't care then we don't care either. Although I think this year breakin was actually even better than last year, at least from what I can remember.


solarwind – March 6, 2017, 7:39 p.m.

Phariseus: The conditions are exactly the same as was previous year, rating weight 0, and scoreboard as I remember was sent to CTFtime last year by some team, not orgs. So -- full scoreboard is http://pastebin.com/mWyifns8 , your team is ready to promote it to same or better rating weight compared to last year?

gnx: ok, you win us on pwn2win, we admire your extraordinary ctf player skills.


gnx – March 6, 2017, 7:47 p.m.

Finally, some wise words! Play this year, I promiss create any reversing easy (strings-based), or any challenge morse-based, so your team can score too! \o/


solarwind – March 6, 2017, 7:56 p.m.

gnx: Oh, so you are organizer, not player? You played vs us last year, and challenge us now to play against you on your own ctf? Thats a clever move, you are really good! And also very smart no less than polite and respectful in communication.


gnx – March 6, 2017, 8:02 p.m.

I was ironic. It's obvious that you can not solve anything really difficult. I used sarcasm (google it if you don't know what it is, LOL).


solarwind – March 6, 2017, 8:11 p.m.

Oh shit, folks -- gnx got us. And he knows sarcasm! We really don't know how to solve tasks -- we have a cat https://i.ytimg.com/vi/EzBNvb9BiuI/hqdefault.jpg . It is called "Vzhuh". It gets all flags from magic wand -- that is how we win all CTFs. But it will not work if someone knows about it!


gnx – March 6, 2017, 8:16 p.m.

This cat does not seem to work well on Pwn2Win. Too hard for him? huauhauhauha


solarwind – March 6, 2017, 8:19 p.m.

I will tell you a secret -- thats because this is shitty task for CTF. It requires alot of tedious work and give less points then same amount of programming challenges you have. To get high score folks are urged to solve a pile of ACM style coding problems, unrelated to infosec. If they will not solve them, they will loose -- regardless of this hw chall. No one actually tried this task on CTF for serious.

Your second Bathing and Grooming -- solution is "implement MD5 in SQL", you think this is really good infosec task? I always said you are very smart, but even you should see thats bullshit.

Attack step task -- we already talked about this last year, you were bragging about outstanding innovation in kernel pwnable on ARM -- but pwnable.kr has towerlroot task for years.

So don't offend our cat -- it always smell shit just fine :)

solarwind,
Our CTF, our rules, our brutal tasks!

1 - Dragon Sector had a lot of fun with Timekeepers (FPGA-based RE). It is for this type of audience that we create these challenges.

2 - Bathing and grooming was a great challenge. Sometimes you need to make complex payloads in infosec, not only "RSA-based" challenges with scripts already done (roflol).

3 - We innovated a little bit in the "Attack Step", thotypous already explained that (/event/281).

4 - PPC-M total points: 410
RE total points: 435 + 700 (Timekeepers)

Yes, you could have beaten the CTF without doing any programming or physics challenge!

I will end this fucking discussion here.

gnx: LOL, if you think that you are the smartest person in room regardless of what others say -- it can not be changed. Good luck!
