- Scenario: Siege of Utopia
Atlantis is an isolated civilization located on artificial islands in Mare Utopia. The location is difficult to access due to constant storms rendering air and marine traffic infeasible. The local traffic relies on a network of submersible sensor drones (UUVs). Keywords: OWASP, SQLi, XSS, CSRF, DOS, WAF, mod_security, rootkit, IDS, Suricata, SNORT, Bro, OSSEC, nmap, KALI, Linux, ssh, DNS, IP, Cookies, SSL, shellshock The drone network has recently been experiencing frequent failures. The whole Utopian society will cease functioning if the network is lost. Our intelligence suggests a large-scale cyber attack by a hostile force as the cause. Your task: repel the attacks on the UUV network and reclaim the hijacked drones.
