You have reached the amazingly awesome page of the pwndevils, a hacking group started at Arizona State University. We love learning about computer systems and competing in Capture the Flag to demonstrate our computer security knowledge.
Here's our calendar of events (meetings and CTFs that we participate in):
Here are some recording of our meetings in the past:
New to CTFs and computer security in general? No problem, the pwndevils got you covered (we were all curious newbies at one point)!
Most of the CTF challenges require a Linux machine (installing Ubuntu 16.04 or the latest LTS in a virtual machine is pretty easy), as most of the binaries in most of the competitions run on Linux.
A lot of our recent challenges run best on Docker so we recommend installing that as well.
Also great is to work your way through the OverTheWire
war-games: Bandit is the game that's targeted towards beginners, and it helps you get familiar with linux environments. The other games are great, and get more and more difficult (in a good way).
