This is the last day of CTF for this semester. At 3:30 PM, it’s all over but the crying. We’ll have a countdown, likely set to “Eye of the Tiger”.
Yesterday when I arrived to make sure the VMs were still up and running, no teams were in the room. I was feeling a bit mean, so I took this as an opportunity to power-cycle all of the attacker workstations in order to see how their scripts deal with a power blink. I also used this moment as a chance to grab scripts and random files left laying around on the various workstations, locked and unlocked. If you’re in the area, look forward to an upcoming talk: “Found Files of MSU CTF”.
SwaffleU has taken the lead, though COPE and Hash Puppies are not far behind. It’s likely that one of the lower-ranked teams is quietly waiting for the last moments, as well. The scores, as of 9AM:
- SwaffleU – 24
- COPE – 23
- Hash Puppies – 19
- Wesley’s Unkempt Beard – 9
- Team 4 – 8
- BitBangers – 7
