Linux Special Interest Group, Multimedia University Melaka Campus will be organizing Open Hack Challenge after being postponed due to hard drive failure, Open Hack Challenge is opened to all who are in Cyberjaya and Melaka campus from the 10th to 12th of April 2007. The target server will be opened 24/7 and ends at 4 pm on the 12th April.

IP Address of the target box will be announced in .

Participants will need to connect to MMU Melaka’s VPN in order to play.(Free)

We encourage those who are staying off-campus to start setting up your MMU VPN connection.

Open Hack is a real server break in where we provide a server rigged with holes and mis configurations for players to test their hacking skills. The aim of the game is for the player to find a way into the server and gain root privileges. Once he/she has root, the player will need to run a script that will replace the server’s index page with the player’s info, acknowledging the player as the sole winner. The server is purposely mis configured. The player should look for the obvious & non-obvious clues, it’s everywhere.

The first person to break in, gain root, and run the script wins a seat HITBSecConf2007 courtesy of Hack In The Box and a 1GB hosting package + Domain (.com/.net/.org) for a year sponsored by Advanced Integrated Software Technologies.

Rules Of The Game:
Here are some guidelines to prevent you from looking like a lame script kiddie:

  • DO NOT bruteforce the server. You’ll die of old age before the password gets cracked.
  • DO NOT launch a DoS/DDoS attack.
  • DO NOT flood the network
