ae27ff joined

We are happy to announce Smile

A new site has been created and joined the network.
ae27ff is a brand new project and immediately wanted to get linked.
As my "holidays" are over, dloser and me took action and did our part quickly.
Now read something from the creator, crashdemons who currently invests much time in his new security baby.

Quote from crashdemons

I'm involved with a few Alternate Reality Games and it made me interested in puzzles like crypto, steg, etc for a while - I also get along with different people involved who don't know how to evaluate their skills when they start out. I had been thinking about starting an ARG for a while but I couldn't think of a plot, so I compromised and made a puzzle site that would let users gauge themselves.

In specific, having been involved with some cicada and OTP22 challenges has given me a perspective on hidden images in images, text, and even audio - as well as doing a lot of XOR.

I haven't quite gone all-out with BPSK31 like OTP22 does, but there are still infinite possibilities.

Mod-X joined

We are happy to announce…

The sites on Mod-X are now ranked and linkeable.
In total, three sites/projects are supported and maintained by Wang and
we hope you will welcome the addition.
To those who do not know the projects yet; It´s worth to check them out.

At least Mod-X, and i think the others too, have some nice theme and story setup,
and each site offers around 10 levels with linear access.

Now i want to simply quote, what wang has to say about Mod-X and co.

Quote from Wang

The Mod-X challenge was formed around 2001 when the Cyberarmy "Zebulun"
challenges were in their prime. Zebulun was the first online
security/hacking challenge I had played and I was fascinated by both the
challenges (they were educational but not boring because they had a sense
of storyline/mystery) and the sense of community that formed around the
challenges and within the forums/irc channels.Through Cyberarmy I also
learned about and started playing the challenges there too -
the challenges were very different to Zebulun and often harder, but just as
much fun

At the time, I had just begun working as a web developer and I was looking
for side projects to help me learn more ASP/Perl/PHP/SQL. I thought that
creating my own challenge site would be a great project to learn both
scripting and how to secure a web site. Mod-X was born with 2 levels
available to play and originally it was written in ASP with a Microsoft
Access database backend (ouch). Over the years the site was redesigned and
rewritten a number of times and it changed hosting provider several
times...but I always tried to keep it alive and relevant. The site gained a
lot of popularity and at times it felt like a full time job to keep the
site up and running with fresh challenges and new features - but I loved
every moment of it Last I checked, we'd seen around 60,000+ player
accounts registered at Mod-X.

Over the years, I found that Mod-X's approach to challenges (level based
with each challenge being harder than the last) led to a problem as it
meant that it was increasingly difficult for me to provide new challenges
for our players (each challenge requiring more investment from me than the
last). I wanted a way to provide players with more frequent challenges of
varying difficulties and to allow players to play the challenges in any
order than they liked. This led to the creation of the Omega Project (named
after my beautiful wife, Omegataurus, whom I met through Cyberarmy!) which
is currently a set of 7 challenges within Mod-X that have their own
rankings independent of the main Mod-X challenges.

Also, at some point (around 2001/2002) the site went down and
I was really sad to see it go (it felt like a piece of history had
disappeared). I had a good line of communication with Disavowed and I asked
if it would be possible for Mod-X to host the challenges
within Mod-X for our players to enjoy. Disavowed graciously agreed and in
December of 2003 the challenges were brought online within
Mod-X. They are still available for players to play today.

I can say with all honesty that Mod-X has been 100% life changing for me. I
would not be the person that I am today without Mod-X and challenge sites
like Cyberarmy's Zebulun and They have had a profound impact
on my personal and professional life, and while I don't always have as much
time to work on Mod-X as I used to...I am very happy that it's still up and
that people still want to play it. Thank you!

Thank you Wang and encse for making this possible!

Of course, we all wish you…
Happy Challenging!

Beside the challenges they write articles about IT Security and offer a forum.
Also noteable is that the site sourcecode is available on github, which i really like myself Smile

Currently it offers 42 challenges from the classic challenge site categories like Javascript, SQLi and crypto, and there are also sections for beginners and intermediates.

We all wish you...
Happy Challenging!

Mathchall joined

I am happy to announce...

A new site has been put into the rankings.
Mathchall is created by two friends in Greece who did this site in their free time. It is now a bit over a year old and, as the name suggests, is focused on
math and has been translated from Greek to English.
Expect a medium level of difficulty; the goal is to make more people interested in mathematics by solving interesting problems in a playful environment.
Many of the problems can be solved with logic only, but the more advanced challenges definitely require some math skill.
They plan to create an archive of videos and support information, as well as a hint system.
Some players noted that you get a penalty in score for entering incorrect solutions, but the authors might consider to remove this anti-feature.

I am sorry for the long delay, and...

of course we all wish you
Happy Challenging!

PS: Please note that usernames for linking Mathchall are case-sensitve.

IRISSCON 2012 lost challs

We are happy to announce...

The lost challenges from IRISSCON 2012 are now available and added to the wechall rankings.
The CTF/convention has taken place in November 2012, and these challenges were not included due to the high amount of challenges there.
The author, Damien has made 7 of the lost exploits, cracking and forensic challenges available on his website, and you are welcome to try them out.
According to him, further challenges could be released there, but not in high quantities, as he is busy working as a software engineer.

Of course interest in security is a must in this field .

Again, we all wish you
Happy Challenging!

Tasteless joined

We are happy to announce,

Another challenge site just spawned!

Tasteless is a collection of challenges made by various members of the Tasteless CTF Team.
The site once has vanished, after the original author got too busy with his profession, and the original site got lost due to freehoster retardness.
nurfed has recreated many of the challenges now, and they are available again; ready to get solved.
The site is quite small at the moment, and offers 16 challenges which are mostly from the realistic exploit category.

As always we wish you...
Happy Challenging!

Feb 02, 2013 - 00:45 joined

We are Happy to Announce! has joined the wechall network.

It was formerly known as "", and is probably the oldest wargame network that is still active today.
The project currently offers 10 wargames with over 120 challenges, and should be well known amongst the challengers.
Most of the games are about lowlevel memory corruption, varying in their difficulty.
There is also a box called "bandit" available for beginners, teaching basic UNIX security, as well as web based challenges, known as the "natas" box.
You are also welcome in their irc chatroom, ircs://, which has currently about 40 users conncted. is brought to you by Steven, who is the first challenge site admin to implement a new type of scoring protocol, the warbox scoring via identd.

This protocol is brought to you by epoch_qwert. It allows "traditional warboxes" to be scored with a service utilising identd on the warbox and acting as a scoring proxy.

Read about using this scoring procedure in your Profile->Warboxes and in the forum.

Of course we all wish you...
Happy Challenging!

Jan 11, 2013 - 10:15 joined

We are happy to announce! joined the wechall network.
This brand new site, launched in december 2012, is available in German only.
It currently offers 100 challenges from the usual categories, sorted by
relevance; JavaScript, Crypto, Logic, Stegano, Research, Coding, Exploit, Cracking.
The challenges seem to be targeted for beginners and intermediate challengers,
but according to the admin, C-tecx, you
are encouraged to submit more challenges.
He let me know that he created the site because, unlike some other countries,
there are not many German challenge sites available.

At best i let him speak for himself, as gave an informative response when asked
for some background information...

...and of course we all wish you...
Happy Challenging!

Quote from C-tecx

Die Idee einer Challenges Seite habe ich bereits vor ca. 7 Jahren
gehabt. Nicht anders als heute bot der
deutsche Raum außer Happy-Security und MiBs Challenges leider nicht
viel in diesem Bereich an.
Damals nannte ich das Projekt noch "CheckTheHackits". Ende 2006 war
CheckTheHackits schon einmal als Beta Version online. Allerdings waren
noch viele Fehler vorhanden und einige Module noch gar nicht fertig.
Trotz der guten Resonanz musste ich das Projekt aus zeitlichen Gründen
wieder aufs Eis legen und CheckTheHackits offline setzen.
Mitte 2012 habe ich das Projekt wieder aufgenommen und Ende 2012 war es
dann fertig. Das besondere an der Seite ist, dass die User aktiv
mitarbeiten können. Sprich selber neue Hackits einsenden, Tutorials
schreiben und selbst entwickelte Tools bereit stellen können. Auf dem
jeweiligen Profil ist zu erkennen wer wieviele Hackits, Tools,
Links oder Tutorials erstellt bzw. eingesendet hat. Mein Wunsch ist,
dass Hacking-Challenges durch das aktive Mitarbeiten von Usern wächst
und so interessant bleibt. Jedes Mitglied soll die
Möglichkeit haben seine eigenen Ideen einzubringen.

Viele Grüße
