Warl0ck Gam3z Hacking Competition at AusCERT2015

warl0ck gam3z will be running an on-site hacking competition at AusCERT2015. 
Learn through hands on application and compete with other professionals in the field. 

Warl0ck Gam3z is a hands-on 24/7; throw-down, no-holds-barred hacker competition focusing on areas of physical security, digital forensics, hacker challenges and whatever craziness our exploit team develops. This is an online framework so participants can access it regardless of where they are or what network they are connected to via laptop, netbook, tablet or phone. Most challenges require participants to download something that pertains to the problem at hand and solve the challenge using whatever tools, techniques or methods they have available. 

One participant will become the leader of the board and they control which challenges are available. Being the leader of the board is a double edge sword. Regular participants may choose to back out of a challenge if they cannot solve it but once the leader of the board selects a challenge; they must answer/solve it or be passed by a new leader as they are not afforded the same luxury of just backing out. And just to keep it interesting, occasionally “The Judge” challenge comes out and is made available to everyone except the current leader of the board.

There are a multitude of point gainers outside the confines of the board challenges. Extra point gainers will randomly appear on the game board in the form of The Judge, Bonus Questions, Free Tokens, One Time Tokens, Movie Trivia Quotes, Scavenger Hunts (online and onsite), Lock Picking (onsite) and Flash Challenges. Be careful of the 50/50 Token which may add or subtract points to your score.

The game board contains a scoring area so participants can view current standings, as well as an embedded chat function for those that may want to taunt their competitors, or work with other participants as part of a team. There is always on onsite moderator to assist participants that may be experiencing issues as well.

All events that occur on the game board are sent off to Twitter as they happen. These include items such as participants signing up, leader of the board changes, scoring updates and challenge updates. Additionally, our Facebook site will be populated with information regarding the challenge and the current state of events.
