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.
Joining the pwndevils is easy, everyone is welcome! Simply join
the mailing list. Meeting times, meeting locations, and CTFs that we will participate in are sent out in our discord. To get an invite to the discord, just ask for one in the mailing list.
pwndevil officers make things go: they organize meetings, get food for meetings (yay), and are generally awesome people.

The pwndevils would not exist without the support of the following faculty members (who try to hack right alongside the team)
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).
