Bsides Orlando was amazing!!! Orlando, FL

Much kudos to the organizing team of Bsides Orlando. The conference went pretty good with great speakers, an awesome party, and we had lots of players!.

ctfORL1Congratulations to @team_ctfu for winning the CTF and we also had some of the winners of SECCDC who placed 2nd. As always much thanks and shout outs to those who stopped by to say hi and helped us @geekevolved @tonylturner  @psifertex @tkrabec @hacksonville  @partlowjoe  demyosec and the entire organizing team, thank you very much for having us at BsidesORL.

….. Cellphones jammed and other SHANENIGANS…

At Kommand && KonTroll CTF anything goes… With exception of 3 clearly defined IP addresses (network is private with no out to internet)the rest is pretty much fair game. If you find a VM that is named  ’Yo momma is… or F … YOU… ‘ it is likely that someone put it in there and is not part of the game. In Austin someone cloned a zombie and made it into a honeypot.

In Orlando someone was putting false flags in targets and also someone completely jammed the cellphones at the ctf room and the following object was found under one of the tables :)

cellphonejam

 

 

 

 

 

Red Team in action…

For the first time in K&&K CTF we had a red team pretty much going around the network and tricking players into clicking stuff… here is some of what happened…

#CapitolHillCTF Finals were amazing! 02-16-2013 Washington, D.C

Amazing night at  CapitolHillCTF finals! Playing CTF at  Mansion O in Washington D.C was an absolute trip. Thanks everybody that attended and helped with the event specially Jim from NimbleSec, Ivy , Nick Farr, and Cassandra Sechler whose video creations were shown during the CTF for those who wonder about some of the videos shown during competition.

CTF was hard fought, most of the teams were scoring one after the other. FDG team won competition by creating a SCADA exploit against one of the targets during the competition.  We had some incredible players it was really good to see you all there, thanks again.

Here is the final  pic of the scoreboard. We used the PTCORESEC  scoreboard for this game.

On September 22nd we will be in Tampa at American Legion on the corner of Dale Mabry and Kennedy Blvd (3810 W. Kennedy Blvd. Tampa, FL 33609). Be prepared for another awesome time of p0wning, great music, chili cook off and party.

Remember to read K&&K CTF II before you play so you are ready to play by the time you get there. The Samurai CTF will also be there for those who want to play entry level game.

One more thing… In FLL one of the teams was completely knocked out of the competition as their switch was compromised and rendered useless. Remember… in K&&K CTF all goes including attacking your computer, your switch, your msf pro… ;) hint, hint…

Make sure whatever you put at the K&&K CTF network is hardened. Prepare for combat… Good luck.

Kommand && KonTroll CTF 2 at ISSA Hack The Flag 2012

Another amazing Hack The Flag!. Thanks to ISSA South Florida. All teams did good and for the first time more people played K&&K CTF than Samurai CTF!. All teams scored and compromised several hosts as for the total number of targets no team got over 30% of the whole game.

Congratulations to Broward Hackerspace the defending champions @n00bznet @arsecroft @d1sc0rd1an . We are of the opinion that Hack The Flag should be a full day event and more frequent. That may actually become a reality in the near future ;)

We will see you on September 22nd at the ISSA Tampa Capture The Flag event. Stay tuned for future dates below some pictures of the event.

Kommand && KonTroll CTF at WCSC -Tampa 12-17-2011

…and JZ00z built my hot bot…: )    

Awesome time in Tampa at the WCSC. We had a good crowd of players and lots of fun. Broward Hackerspace/303 came back with a VENGEANCE absolutely OWNING IT ALL!!!

It was awesome to see the winning team p0wn target by target, a team composed of  great people (Some I’ve played CTFs with..) and with a diverse and rich skills in many different areas. Only a team like that can win K&&K… and they did it.

I would like to congratulate and thank the winning team @n00bznet ,  @shitroamersays , @kingtuna , @d1sc0rd1an , Pr0xy , Alex and Raj  for winning the CTF. All I can say is this… 45 mins before ending game all they had was C&C connected to a BeEF server via firefox…. that was it… from there they went all they way up until completely owning C&C… Once again congratulations. We always learn from players.

Also many thanks to Zak and the people at WCSC that hosted us at their place at USF.

 

As for the music we had a little of Dubstep backlash!! so I focused on Minimal,Indie dance, Tech House and some break core and Com Truise….

Below some pictures of the event. Stay tuned for future dates…. Hack The Planet!

Kommand && KonTroll CTF at Hacker Halted – Miami, 2011

We had an awesome time at Hacker Halted 2011. We had some great players and pretty cool
people stopping by and checking it out.

Thanks  and congratulations to @dan_crowley and @jolly for winning the CTF and also winning at the Cyberlimpycs.

Dan was p0wning targets LEFT  and RIGHT. Awesome job!. Let’s take a look at the hardware related challenges we featured at this edition of Kommand && KonTroll CTF

In this picture we have the 3 hardware related challenges.

PrintMe Flag. The only way to win this flag was to first compromise the target VM at the ESXi then escalate privileges and finally print the flag.

At the center there is an Arduino UNO/Ethernet shield. This was pretty easy. It consisted of a HTTP parameter that had to be modified in order to turn ON /OFF the LED in a certain sequence. Most players got this one pretty fast.

Then the SheevaPlug server which could be by itself a single CTF. I used this one for Flash M0b CTF at DEFCON but back then this little wonder was running a FULLY functional C&C with two Zombies which were XP SP2s. This time it was running an install of WP that had several vulnerable plugins and the flag was the MD5 hash found at password table. Also notice that there is an USB programmable LED display attached to it. The characters displayed were also modifiable but to do it player had to gain root and compile some code which is actually available on the internet.

Most targets at Kommand && KonTroll CTF have SEVERAL attack vectors as I try to give players with different backgrounds the opportunity to win it, be it a web app or network or binary type of background. Below are some pictures of the event. If you want us to be at your event or you organize these type of competitions and want us to partner up feel free to reach out to us at [email protected] . Thanks again to EC-Council and all the people at Hacker Halted 2011 that stopped by and played.  And for the record no one has yet taken over the C&C. Stay tuned for future dates…

P.S: Most people said that the MUSIC was awesome. Well the music was basically hand picked Tech House/Minimal/Dubstep from MIA/NYC/London UNDERGROUND EDM scene which I am an avid follower of :) … No you won’t be hearing that music on the radio or TV anytime soon…..

Kommand && KonTroll CTF will be at Hacker Halted 2011 – Oct 26/27

 

We will be at Hacker Halted 2011 on October 26/27 in Miami, FL. We will be bringing the full setup PLUS we will introduce new challenges.

Hardware related challenges. No this will not be about making stuff but probing embedded OSs that will certainly drive hardware behavior once targets are compromised…. Hint.. stuff that goes ON and OFF..

We will also be featuring new multimedia tricks that we are sure you will find entertaining. Of course we will have some awesome selection of underground electronica in our open DJ/VJ station. Also playing Kommand && KonTroll CTF will warm you up for the Cyberlympics at the conference..

 

See you there. Prepare for combat..

Kommand && KonTroll CTF at ISSA South Florida – Hollywood, FL, 2011

We had an incredible time at the ISSA Hack the Flag event and Chili Cook-off in Hollywood, Florida. Thank you very much to ALL who attended, played,  and danced with us. Some described the Kommand && KonTroll CTF as a ”COMPUTER RAVE”. We are glad we were able to deliver a multimedia experience beyond common CTFs.

Participants from as far as DC303 and Gainsville came down to participate. A total of 3 teams played this game with a team of 6, a team of 4, and a team of 3 players. The Gainsville guys along with South Florida’s Mike Pella took 1st place by almost twice the points. The two other teams tied at 700 points each. After 4 hours of game play only about 25% of the environment was explored.

Couldn’t get enough? Kommand && Kontroll CTF will be hosted at Hacker Halted later this year.

Here are some pictures from the event.
