Flags are obtained by breaking security of specially set-up servers, but this time also by social engineering and lock-picking their way to one of the 31 flags to be captured.

Near the end of February, a pre-contest will kick-off the CTF. !RevSpace will be among one of the hackerspaces to connect to the warzone VPN and compete to qualify for the main contest. With a varied membership base, from pentesters to hardware hackers, we are sure to at least make a lasting impression.
