What I love the best from the conference, there’s a live hacking competition where teams of hackers will be given a set of task to hack and find exploits for the servers. The teams need to build and defend their own servers while attacking other servers for the other teams. This will be judged through points collected by the teams. Sounds interesting right?

I went to the security conference since 2004 while it started on 2003 for Kuala Lumpur. I bought the security conference t-shirt from 2004 and I have all the collection in my wardrobe. Usually I went with some friends or met up with friends there. So anyone interested in going this year? Let me know if you’re planning to go so that we can arrange which day we’ll be going to. For more information, you can refer to the official page for the conference [ here ].

p/s : The conference fee is so damn expensive. I can’t afford to go although I’m damn interested. Anyone want to sponsor me to the conference? I’ll take it as my birthday gift!
