August, 2017

Hogeschool van Amsterdam



Summer Of Pwnage is an open Dutch summer event for everyone interested in security / hacking.

So students, hackers, learners, coders, join the crowd!




+

We are a free educational summer event aiming to bring students and other security enthusiasts together, to share appsec knowledge, have fun, hunt for zero-days and contribute to the security of the web along the way.

Last summer we found and responsibly disclosed 120 new WordPress vulnerabilities. Resulting in a huge number of security patches, protecting millions of users all around the world.

And this summer, we are back again to hunt for zero-days in popular IoT devices!

Want to learn about hacking, improve your skills, contribute to a more secure web, or just want to drop by for a Club-Mate and meet new people? Welcome at the Summer of Pwnage 2017!

Meet. Fun. Learn. Pwn!

Bring home the IoT you PWN!

At the closing day we will rate all Pwns, together. Last year the most brilliant/elegant/awesome Pwn of all won the Summer Of Pwn MacBook Pro. Grats Jullien Rentrop!

This year, the best Pwnrs can bring home their hacked IoT device(s)!

More info on the selected IoT gear soon. Mail us your cool ideas! sumofpwn@securify.nl

Of course you can! Summer of Pwnage is open to everyone (not only students) with an interest in software security, regardless of your expertise on the subject. So anyone from eager beginners to the 1337est hackers can join. Are you curious about the type of work involved and you just want to find out if it is something for you? Sign up! We are here to get you on track.

So Students, Learners, Coders, Hackers, Breakers, Join Us!

The event has a strong focus on sharing knowledge and teaching others, and with all the security experts joining there is more than enough knowledge to go around! Participating researchers have found security holes in products made by Microsoft, Apple, Cisco, Citrix, Amazon, Adobe, EMC, Oracle, Synology, Western Digital and more. Therefore this is an excellent opportunity to learn from and work with the very best. Check out some previous research here!

Summer of Pwnage is a community project and its goal is to contribute to the security of popular, widely-used products / (open-source) software in a fun and educational way. So everyone wins! We are not here to make the rules, and as a result everyone will be the rightful owner of his or her own bugs and exploits, so you can use them as you like. We do, however, strongly support being part of the solution and responsibly disclosing them to the authors/owners of the products, something we will be helping you with if need be.

Bring Home The IoT You Pwn!

During the last SoP day (Aug 25) we will present and rate all findings together! The top 3 coolest findings will be rewarded with epic Summer of Pwnage sunglasses and T-shirts! But there is more! The pwned IoT-devices can be brought home by their respective (best) Pwner!

IoT

During this event we will be researching and exploiting a set of popular IoT devices available on location for you to exploit. The exact devices will be announced here and on Twitter when selected. If you have any great ideas, let us know at sumofpwn@securify.nl

IoT devices are used by a great many people! By revealing and (responsibly) disclosing security bugs in these devices, users will become aware of the risks so they can take appropriate action (patch, disconnect or any other possible measure to mitigate risks).

To compete for the prizes we'd like you to send your Pwn to us. If you like we can report your find to the vendor. In order to submit your Pwn, please fill in the following form: pwn form.txt (example).

What we did last summer...

During last year's edition our target was WordPress & its Plugins and Themes. During a month of security bug hunting over 100 new vulnerabilities have been identified and disclosed responsibly. But most important, we had lots of fun, shared a wealth of knowledge and introduced many new people to the fascinating world of cyber security.
