c00kies@venice got third place in UCSB iCTF

Logo c00kies@venicec00kies@venice is our nickname for computer security competitions. Last night, we got third place in UCSB iCTF 2010 , the biggest international “Capture The Flag” in the world.This year 72 teams (900 students) from 16 countries competed in the game. It was a great game of hacking and challenge-solving perfectly organized by Giovanni Vigna at the University of California, Santa Barbara (that we thank!).

We are very very proud and happy! More information (including pictures) will be soon available, stay tuned!

  1. Ho visto solo ora la notizia.
    Congratulazioni! Fa veramente piacere leggere cose del genere 😉
    L’unico rammarico è aver frequentato l’università troppo in “anticipo” per vedere nascere e partecipare ad iniziative del genere.
    Probabilmente se ci fosse stato un gruppo cosi’ anche agli inizi del 2000, anche il mio percorso lavorativo sarebbe stato diverso :-)

    Continuate cosi’ e chissà che quest’anno non riusciate a strappare il primo posto. Ve lo auguro!
