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 🙂 …







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…








We had an incredible time and we hope you did too. Below find some pictures of the event. We will see you next at Hackmiami Hackers Conference 2013 on 05-18 and 05-19.  You can always reach out to us at [email protected] if you have any questions. See you then. Prepare for combat…

Can’t spell Austin without an A… as in AWESOME! – BSides Austin, TX

Awesome time at Bsides Austin, TX. Incredible conference, well organized, great content and most of all some of the best players in the country. We would like to thank Prolexic technologies @prolexic , Michael Gough @hackerhurricane and the team at BsidesAustin for their invitation and hospitality during our time at Bsides Austin.

CTF was hard fought by mainly two teams and eventually team one took over the CNC almost at the end of the conference.  Congratulations to @joshsokol  @mauvehed @obsinisize for winning fair and square. Well deserved @pwnieExpress prize.

Shout outs to those who  helped, played, stopped by and checked us out we always appreciate it.  @alexheid  @jduck31337  @egyp7 @victoriano3 @marcusjcarey @SinderzNAshes and all others who stopped by and I do not know your tweeter handle, thank you very much…

Last but not least much props to @mauvehed who not only was part of the winning team but provided us with some awesome mixes and mixed live during the CTF. Here is one of his awesome sets at DEFCON 19. Below also find some pictures of the event.

#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.


Here are some pics of the event as well…
