Pretty easy to understand
Difficulty ranges from easy to hard
Variety to please everyone
Here are the challenges of this year. (Note that they’re subject to change):


Your goal is to find and exploit vulnerabilities exposed by various websites. Your analytical skills will be solicited more than ever in this edition. You’ll need to read between the lines of code.

The challenges of the past years could serve as warm-up.

-Phony app-

Android, Windows Phone, iOS… Is there such a thing as mobile security?


NMAP is a pretty good tool, but unfortunately it won’t get you root on the box.

Bring some computation power to crack those hashes you will find on your way to salvation. This track will be integrated into others.

In 2010, two (2) pharmaceutical companies went head-to-head in a winner take all cyber-battle to obtain a lucrative contract. The winner would surely be considered as the world leader in pharmaceutical products, making investors rich beyond belief.

This year, Hackfest is presenting a similar scenario, only this time a multitude of corporate entities will be battling it out in what is today’s most hostile environment: The Internet. Keeping the same model as previous years, teams will not only need to attack, but also defend their respective networks in order to obtain the ultimate prize. Players will be placed in a war mood and in a realistic environment. Players should be see:

- An internet simulation
- An anonymity system
- A military base with a SCADA system
- An international bank
- Multiple operating system such as: CentOS, Windows and Debian
- IPv6 telephony systems
- And More…

Players can already get ready for the games! See details on the web site.
