    CtF Winner Selected!

    Kenshoto has been selected as the CtF Organizers!

    Here is their announcement:

    Word is in from up on high, kenshoto will be running the Defcon
    Capture the Flag contest in 2005. This year's CtF will be a
    knock-down-drag-out-cyberninja war, the likes of which the world has
    never seen.

    The core skill for this contest will be finding vulnerabilities in
    software. Those of you who have avoided playing in CtF because you
    think it is for lamers, we bet you can't find all our vulnerabilities.

    Teams will still need to defend a server, and will need to be able to
    exploit the vulnerabilities they find. The vulnerabilities are going
    to be custom-written, so packetstorm archives and nmap aren't going to
    help you win.

    There will be a qualifying round, which will start on Friday, June 3rd
    at 10:00 PM EDT. Only 7 teams and 12 individuals will qualify. Last
    year's winners, Sk3wl0fR00t, are automatically qualified (leaving 6
    team slots), unless they too decide to play in the qualifying round,
    in which case they've still got to place in the top 8.

    Registration is currently open at This
    year, we're not only going to accept teams, we'll also accept lone
    warriors. Such ronin won't have to defend anything, but will
    otherwise be playing the same game.

    We encourage anyone to attempt to qualify, even if as a learning

    Good luck... you're going to need it.
