PHDays 8: online contests starting soon

Just one month remains until PHDays 8. That makes it the perfect time to start warming up for The Standoff and other hacker-versus-hacker excitement! The weeks leading up to PHDays will be filled with action, in the form of two online contests: HackQuest and Competitive Intelligence. Don't miss your chance to compete—winners will receive prizes, including free invites to PHDays.

The ONSEC team has prepared HackQuest, which will be held from April 23 to 29. This contest for web lovers will involve interesting old vulnerabilities and apply them in the context of today's web. All tasks are based on real-world examples. Participants will do well to look through old research and articles, as well as read the documentation for the latest services. The start will be at 12:00 a.m. (midnight), Moscow time, on April 23.

Competitive Intelligence is back. For several years now, we have shown how easy it is to find sensitive information about people and companies. As they say: "The Internet never forgets!" Put on your sleuthing shoes as you dig up information about a particular organization online. Find as many correct answers as possible, as quickly as possible. The contest will last three days (May 4, 5, and 6) and starts at 9:00 a.m., Moscow time, on May 4 on Telegram: @phdayscibot.

Soon we'll have more to share about all-new contests that will be going on at the venue during PHDays. Stay tuned!
