Short notice.

A CTF was planned for Tog tonight. It's still going on.

The CTF is ready now and will kick off at 23:00 (PKT-4). There will be
no remote access available, again not enough time to prepare. You need
to be in Tog to attack the host.

The only prize is your own pride. The idea is to try and hack this host
yourself, don't just point a scanner at the host and go "Make h4x0r
r0cket go now!" If you do that then leave your dignity at home with your
"skillz" This is a learning excercise, learning how to probe and test a
hosts security - not how to type an IP address and have software do it
all for you.

I can provide some hints when I can and URLs to resources online that
might help.

Yes, a port scanner is at least acceptible and probably a good idea!
But try to work the rest out with some manual testing, try to be a
hacker and not a security professional ;) The host should be rather easy
to root, it's not intended to be difficult.

Schrodinger.
