I am happy to announce that Webhacking.kr joined the wechall network.
It's the first (South) Korean site that joined, and it currently offers 55 webhacking and exploit challenges.
The sites main language is korean, but mostly the challenge sourcecode and description seems to be in english, so all people can give it a try and show their exploit skills again.
Webhacking.kr is around 2 years old and offers a unique and selfmade interface. It seems a bit buggy here and there and is still in developement, but personally i like the minimalistic approach.
Many thanks go out to oldzombie for writing the needed scripts.
To enter solutions to a challenge, please goto the "Auth" section of the website and try to enter the solution word or the md5sum of it.
W3Challs is now ranked in our small network.
This site is from awe, and the sitename is a wordplay with the w3consortium.
The site is completely handmade, which i usually prefer for most websites.
The site is rather new and currently offers around 60 challenges, with quites some exploits,cryptos and other usual categories.
The content is available in english and french, so all challengers can enjoy their stay.
Of course i like to thank awe for implementing the needed scripts and joining wechall
I am happy to announce that another site is participating in the rankings.
root-me.org is a rather new challenge site, focused on web-and real hacking.
Especially interesting should be the "Capture the flag" challenges, where you have to root a virtual machine to get the validation flag
Many thanks to the staff at root-me.org for joining us and g0uz for writing the needed scripts!
Note: The usernames on root-me are case sensitive. Keep that in mind when linking accounts.
SPOJ differs from other participating sites, as you have to submit your code and it gets executed and tested for correctness on their servers.
You are offered 1995 programming challenges whereas 44 programming languages are currently supported.
It is available in 4 human languages: english, Polish, Brazilan/Portuguese and Viatnamese, but i sticked with the english for my first impression.
Many thanks go out to kopringo for implementing the needed scripts, and of course to the whole staff over at SPOJ.
You might wonder about the high score of SPOJ here. The current algorithms reflect the huge number of challenges this way, and we will see how well it works.
What now is left to say is
Merry Happy Challenging!
I am happy to announce...
that Security Traps joined the wechall network.
It is a brand new site with a simple and nice design, created by Mawekl
Additionally there are five small signup challenges, which you need to solve to register,
as well as some hidden "eastereggs" / bugs on the site itself which give points too.
The user interface on the site is available in polish and english, the challenges/code/ciphertext is presented in english.
I wish the site a good start and many users that try it out,
and everyone else
Of course some of you have noticed that there was a lot of trouble with the website today.
The old hoster has fusioned with another hoster, and there is a complete mess now in their datacenters.
We took the oportunity, and moved wechall to my cheap vserver and also released WeChall4.
I installed latest WeChall4 + a database backup that is around 7 days old.
In case we get access to the old server any soon, i might re-install with a more recent database.,
It might be possible that your account got lost, or other changes / updates you made in the last 7 days
We are very sorry for that inconvinience, but hey, we are back ;)
WeChall4 was not really ready for a realease, but i hope we will find all the new bugs sooner or later
For some changelog, please look into the forum, there is some post about major changes.
Please report any error you encounter, i think there are still plenty.
All in all I hope you like the new site, and get familiar with the new look&feel soon.
I am happy to announce, that a new site is participating in the wechall rankings. HackBBS is a french site, with a quite large userbase.
It is using an external phpbb forum, to keep the challenge and forum stuff apart, as the eternal goal on the site is to break into the server.
The site offers currently 84 challenges from the usual categories, but seems focused on exploit/hacking challenges.
According to the Admin, you are encouraged and allowed to crack the server by all means
Of course, you should not interrupt the server from it`s normal operation.
Also there are some "shell" challenges available, and all (but one) of the exploit challenges are real and not simulated.
Of course, to get your own impression, you have to try the site out!
Many thanks go out to it`s Admin, Korigan for implementing the needed scripts,
as well as kev1 and harry41 for contacting the admin in a proper and private way.
