Team RevSpace to participate in HITB ctf contest
10 Jan 2011 -
RevSpace will participate in the HITB capture the flag contest
, a contest where teams of hackers will battle against eachother to capture as many (virtual) flags as possible. Flags are obtained by breaking security of specially set-up servers, but this time also by social engineering and lock-picking their way to one of the 31 flags to be captured.
Near the end of February, a pre-contest will kick-off the CTF. RevSpace will be among one of the hackerspaces to connect to the warzone VPN and compete to qualify for the main contest. With a varied membership base, from pentesters to hardware hackers, we are sure to at least make a lasting impression.
Making the space a dangerous place with the AR.Drone
04 Jan 2011 - After todays metameet Turiphro started to unpack a box with an interesting new toy: the AR.Drone.
During the first test flight Turiphro discovered that not all the AR.Drone features worked with his Android phone. He decided to try it with an iPhone 4 and, after loading the app, it started updating the firmware.. Without any confirmation?!
When the firmware update was done it was time to fly again. With the iPhone 4 it is possible to control the device with the accelerometer by turning the device. That worked very well and he almost hit Okkie and a pile in the other end of the space.
As you can see, we had a very interesting evening (pictures taken with onboard camera #1).
And no, the device didn't crash seriously, it's sitting safe in it's box again. Waiting for the next adventure.
