SecuRT third edition took place last Saturday in Montbéliard. It is a special event that tries to raise awareness about security in computer sciences among students. During the first edition, I participated to their CTF, with jvoisin and rboissat under the name of HackGyver, where we finished first!

Since last year, we decided to organize the challenges for their competition and last week-end, we provided more than 40 different challenges. Now that the event is over, I wanted to review some details here.

Until I write something about the OWASP Winter Code Sprint I did last semester, I want to share a quick thought here:

But still, we managed to go far and almost get it. Because the challenge was interesting, I wanted to write something about it.

It has been a long time since I didn't write something about re. With the GSoC I mostly wrote python code over the past couple of months.

I want something more low-level now and what is better than some re? Plus, it is a good opportunity to use for the first time this awesome tool jvoisin is always bragging about: radare2!
