Beginner - Expert

Individual Player CTF

Our cake batter plant, Moar Bytes, Inc, just experienced a random shutdown and we are unable to restart anything! We believe it was a result of a competitor or a cake hater hacking into our plant from some remote location (they seem to be attacking everything we own). Luckily for us we recently installed some new network monitoring hardware that allowed us to capture all of the network traffic of the incident. Are you willing to help us get our plant back online?


Beginner - Intermediate

Individual Player CTF

SimSpace will be providing 3 different challenges throughout the event: Threat Hunting Challenge, Network Analysis Challenge, Host Analysis Challenge.



Individual Player CTF

Winja is a virtual community, run by volunteers. We aim to build capabilities in the field of Information Security through various technical events, especially capture-the-flag (CTF) events.

Intermediate - Advanced

Individual Player CTF

This CTF is brought to you by the security researchers of Secureworks and will feature a broad range of challenges, from cyber trivia to forensics to malware analysis and more.

Many of the challenges are based on real world examples of the work we do every day to protect our clients.
