The second edition of our very own, very popular ( ..increasing drum roll tempo.. )
HackIM 2011 – The Pre-nullcon Hacker Challenge .. tadda!

Link: http://nullcon.net/nullconctf/hackim-2011/
After the remarkable success of last years challenge ( well we consider frustrating 1000+ n00bs and keeping dozens of haXors sleepless for weeks as success 🙂 ). Here’s your chance to Win a free pass with two days stay for nullcon Goa 2011. All you have to do is run over few trivial puzzles and challenges and the golden ticket is yours. In case you have already bought the ticket don’t worry we’ll reimburse your ticket if you win.

If you have spent anytime with puzzles like notpron or klueless, or other hacking challenges, this one should lie somewhere in between. ( We thought if you gonna pull your hair out solving the puzzle, its only fair that you learn something while doing so.)

This time, first few levels are puzzle/quiz based and the later are based on realistic scenarios.

1. Players will need to create an account in order to participate in the challenge.
2. Each level gives you sets of clues to reach to the next level. Following these clues you should figure your way to the next level. Once you have reached the final level you’ll know how to claim the booty.
3. The unofficial back channel for the challenge is irc.chat4all.org #nullcon & #n|u. Hints will also be provided for each level through twitter or null mailing list. More details will be available shortly.
4. This challenge does NOT give participants any legal permission to exploit http://nullcon.net or its hosting partner in a destructive manner . Any attack against the site or the hosted servers will be observed under general legal framework.
5. Running Automation tools (Scanner/Enumerators/Password Crackers, etc) is not allowed and won’t help you complete the challenge in anyway.
6. Scoreboard for the challenge is available on http://www.nullcon.net/challenge/scoreboard.php

1. Armed with your favorite hacking and debugging tools is advisable. (It will be a good idea to take the new Matriux or BT4 for a ride.)

Good Luck and Have fun 🙂
