On the 30th of May 2020, wizlynx group will host its inaugural online computer hacking competition, PwnTillDawn Online Battlefield. Part hackathon, part eSports, the event is the 100% online version of our famous PwnTillDawn competition which will challenge 50-persons to put their offensive & cyber security skills to the test.
PwnTillDawn Online Battlefield’s Competition is an intensive 24 hour/non-stop competition where 50+ participants will evolve within a network comprised of many machines affected by real life vulnerabilities witnessed by wizlynx group through hundreds of penetration tests conducted for companies and organizations of various sizes and industries. The PwnTillDawn “Capture-the-flag” (CTF) will challenge contestants to break into as many machines as possible using a succession of weaknesses and vulnerabilities. Upon the compromise of a machine, contestants will have to collect flags awarding a certain amount of points.
PwnTillDawn is also designed as a suspenseful game, complete with a leaderboard displaying the latest scores in real time so players can see who’s ahead. Whoever gets the highest score by the end of the 24 hours wins the first prize with a value of up to $1’400 USD.
