ZeroNights 2019 HackQuest starts on October 6!

ZeroNights holds its traditional HackQuest ZeroNights from the 6th to the 13th of October.

ZeroNights HackQuest is a hacking challenge before the annual ZeroNights conference. The goal is to solve tasks related to information security, including reverse engineering, web, mobile hacking, penetration testing, and more.

The winners receive a free invitation to the conference and a place in our Hall of Fame.

  • HackQuest lasts 7 days — October 6, 8 p.m. — October 13, 8 p.m. (MSK)
  • One task per day — you have 24 hours to complete it
  • The first participant to solve a task is given the invitation to ZeroNights 2019
  • Participants earn points by completing the tasks. The second contestant to achieve the goal gets 0.5, the third one – 0.25. A participant with 1.0 point is awarded and get an invitation to the conference (please note that 2 or more points can be exchanged for 1 invitation only)
  • The organizing committee may ask you to describe and explain the steps you’ve taken to achieve the goal (we adhere to honesty and transparency)
  • The participants aren’t allowed to help other contestants with prompts
  • The participants are allowed to submit their answers one time only

There is no pre-registration for a quest. When tasks are available there will be a field for a flag and your email.
