During the Hack in the Box Amsterdam 2015 conference (28,29 May 2015) we participated for the 3rd time in a row with team Hack.ERS in the CTF game.

During the recent Defcon 19 CTF pre-qualifications, one of the challenges included to connect ‘quicker’ to a web server. While figuring out what the solution was for this challenge one of the things I tried was to send the HTTP GET request already in the TCP handshake stage. Sadly enough this had nothing to do […]
