SIGINT CTF 2017 Writeup

The other week me and a team from Abertay University went to Edinburgh for a CTF hosted by SIGINT. The CTF was a jeopardy style CTF with various categories of challenges such as Binary Exploitation, Reverse Engineering, Web Challenges and more. Unfortunately as there was a team limit of four, I was unable to join the team from my university and was placed with another team.

I decided I’d post a blog post on some of the challenges I undertook, and how I solved them. I have not included answers to the trivia and other simpler challenges which we solved as a team. This blog post address’s one of the web challenges and the RBS bank safe challenge that I completed. (more…)

SHU CTF – Cyber Security Challenge

Yesterday I participated in a capture the flag event at Sheffield Hallam University organised by Cyber Security Challenge UK, it was a really interesting experience for my first in person CTF and I took away some points and advice for future CTF’s and things I need to look at and research. I arrived at around 9:30am and got myself signed in and then had some pre-game coffee (Very important before the CTF!!) once everyone started arriving eventually the hosts talked about the schedule for the day, the rules and what prizes are on offer.
