HackYou CTF

Just now was finished HackYou CTF contest from LeetMore team.
The contest lasted for 10 days and held from October 8 to October 18, 2012. Organizers decided to make contest open for everyone, not only for ITMO first-year students.
When CTF was announced, and contest site was opened, I've laughed a lot (and not only me) of the footer banner on the site.
Guys it's really funny. Good job! :)

HackYou CTF was jeopardy-style individual competition with school-level tasks. But some tasks was really hard so solve. Challenges included 6 categories: ppc, stego, crypto, web, reverse and packets. Each category included 3 tasks for 100, 200 and 300 score points. So maximum score is 3600 points.
I've solved all 18 tasks and finished 39th overall.
The most interesting task in my opinion is web300. Most of the time it took to solve cry100 and cry300.
Nevertheless all the tasks are could be solved. It's only a matter of time.

In the end I want to say great thanks to organizers for a really interesting CTF. It was awesome!

P. S. Soon on the CTF site will be a list with the write-ups. Tasks will be available for solving at least for two weeks, to write own solutions. Some interesting game statistics is now available on site.
