I am pleased to announce that we have a winner of our security competition!
More then 60 attendees have tried to find 4 weaknesses in a specially prepared application that contains certain business functions plus some more surprising functions. Time was also an issue, because only the fastest hacker could win. Only one person was actually able to find all of the security defects in our demo application without any help from us: Richard Calaba from SAP CR, Prague. Congratulations! Very well done!
(Richard caught in the act of “firing” an applicant in our vulnerable online application)
I also want to mention that we have a close second winner, Fredrik Pettersson from Volvo IT.
(“Master” Fredrik, teaching his “apprentice” how to force another user to bid 31337 EUR on his old and rusty wheel rims)
As you can see we had quite some fun again this year! May the Forge be with you.
I hope it was also educational to the “non-geek” bystanders and that we see each other again next year…
