  • Binary (reverse engineering, heap exploitation, shellcoding, kernel exploitation)
  • Web (XSS, XS-Search)
  • Android (reverse engineering, JS-Java-Binary exploit thingy)
  • Combinatorial Testing (evaluating test cases, creating test cases)

  • in WS21 the first challenge was really hard for me, the last one really easy. Hence, they are not equally hard so better start early
  • doing challenges as two people is much less frustrating (but check the Collaboration Policy on what's allowed)
