Ghost In The Shellcode CTF 2015

Hello SITers!

If you missed last nights meeting, we announced that we will be participating in the Ghost in the Shellcode CTF! Last year’s CTF was extremely fun and was focused on hacking the Pwn Adventure 2 videogame. We killed a million boars, gave ourselves super speed, and even fought a pack of angry bears with AK47s that, errr, had the right to bear arms. And who could forget the best credits/crypto challenge a game has ever had https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JtHsIWVceQo?

This year’s description: ​

How do you top the world’s first hacking CTF played live in an actual custom CTF/MMORPG? By doing it again, and even better! We’ve even got a dedicated website at pwnadventure.com where you can find out more information about this new world of Pwnie Island, this time a true open-world game, with more challenges unique to game hacking.

Come out and join us for the first CTF we are participating in for 2015!

  • Date – Friday 1/16/15

SIT Meeting 1/14/15

Hello SITers!

Welcome back to an exciting spring semester. This Wednesday marks the first Student Infosec Team meeting of 2015! It’s a fresh and exciting start as we begin the semester with our new website found at ufsit.org. A big thanks to Andrew Kerr, the leader of the project, for all the hard work he put into making it possible.

At this weeks meeting we will be briefly introducing new members of the club to our online resources like IRC, mailing list, Github, etc. We will then follow this up by watching /chatting about a fantastic presentation given by atlas during defcon 14 tittled “The Making of atlas: Kiddie to Hacker in 5 Sleepless Nights”

This is really fantastic/inspirational talk that really got me into infosec when I was a freshman. I’m super excited to watch it with you guys. Hope to see you there!
