Hacking with fun

We have joined PPP CTF  (however, there are still lots of rooms to improve and learn). VXRL is ranked at 43 out of 242 active teams in Plaid CTF 2012. Thank you to all VXRL buddies solving the problems and their participation and other new comers to join with us. Compared with the performance in Codegate YUT challenge 2012, we made kinds of improvement http://yut.codegate.org/finish_rank.php

We are very thankful to Computing Department from Hong Kong Polytechnic University and Professor Rocky Chang's help to sponsor the venue for our contest and line it up for us, it is readily important to us indeed.

Our write up will be posted soon and our next target is DEFCON 20 Pre-qualifying CTF in June. 

Let us have fun. We will keep learning and hacking for fun :-)



Impressive Game Design

Aha, you may think I may simply stop here. I would like to mention about the game this year from PPP (from CMU). They
engage a RPG (Role Play Game) model (i.e. like Final Fantasy indeed) and you need to walk around and ask for tips and
get the challenge. This is a real breakthrough of typical game style. Meanwhile, I do appreciate those challenges are
well-balanced in level and open to all to answer, it is nice and fair.
