I did not set high expectations for myself when I took part in this CTF, as I wanted to have fun and attempt on some categories which I had never attempted before.
It lasted 2 days spanning over the weekend from 4 June to 6 June, which I felt was enough time for me to improve on my skills.
Through this CTF, it has given me a better understanding of some categories - mainly cryptography, as I managed to solve my first RSA challenge! The challenges also focused on networking category, and I did learn quite a lot about networking from this CTF.
Many thanks to Ying Keat for helping me out for some challenges, especially Web Exploitation and Reverse Engineering!
Challenges are categorized into different levels:
- Common - 5 points (Least Difficult)
- Rare - 25 points
- Epic - 50 points
- Legendary - 100 points (Most Difficult)
The hardest category I managed to solve was only up to Epic 😐
At the end of the competition, it was a real surprise.
Top 10 globally!
I will be writing on some challenges which I felt was pretty challenging and did give me a good time trying to crack the challenge.
