This hacking contest is organized as part of Felicity, the annual cultural and technical festival, to be held from 18th – 20th February, 2011.
Real Hacking Contest!
Most hacking challenges creates a dummy site/scenario where organizers know in advance how far you can go! In most of those challenges, once you uncover security holes, you are often encountered with a lame message congratulating you.
But in this real hacking contest, you are expected to hack into IIIT Hyderabad’s website itself i.e. http://iiit.ac.in/
As per official site 1st Prize is Rs. 5000. But I personally feel that this hacking contest itself is bigger than any other prize! 😉
Though, you can see complete list of prizes here.
The test run will be on Jan 29th, 2010 i.e. tomorrow and main contest will be on Jan 30th 2010. Time will be 10PM IST.
