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.
About The Club
Pwndevils alpha: Thursdays 4pm–6pm, usually in BYENG 209
Pwndevils beta: Tuesdays 4:30pm–6:30pm, usually in BYENG 210
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).
