The SiBCTF 2011 finals were held on 11th of September, 2011. There were 8 teams from Russia invited to take part onsite and 8 foreign teams invited to take part online. The contest winner is team «HD || !HD» from Yekaterinburg, Russia.
At the game start the teams were provided with the image of virtual machine containing vulnarable services: “MaRSAhodik”, “Paranoia”, “Sandboxes”, “Maestro” и “Terminal Edition”.
Unfortunately, there were some technical issues. For the first hours of the competition there were problems with the OpenVPN server that connected the team segments into the game network. After reconfiguration the jury decided to run the game with traditional CTF rules, to not let the teams to spend the rest of the game on learning new rules. Although, we're still enthusiastic about making a game with new rules. Stay tuned!
After solving the OpenVPN issue the teams were allowed to access the vulnerable images of each other. The teams, being tough at image analysis at the moment, begun their attacks, defences and advisory posting. The top 10 places after the competition:
- team “HD || !HD”, Yekaterinburg, Russia — 1st place;
