PwnTillDawn Online Battlefield’s Competition is an intensive 24 hour/non-stop competition where 50+ participants will evolve within a network comprised of many machines affected by real life vulnerabilities witnessed by wizlynx group through hundreds of penetration tests conducted for companies and organizations of various sizes and industries.

Upon the compromise of a machine, contestants will have to collect flags awarding a certain amount of points.

When the total of the points from the flags discovered by the participants will reach different thresholds (based on the number of players) a training will be granted! We are counting on you to discover as many flags as possible so we can give away all the trainings!
