Pen-Test Game

The team have recently come across the Can You Crack It? game for those interested in the security arena particularly around Hacking, Pen-Testing and Coding.

So we thought we’d share it with you and see what results you get. It’s an interesting game and is designed to test the skills of a would be ‘hacker/cracker’.

We have played the game ourselves with mixed results amongst the team with one person doing a lot of washing up! It does prove very addictive and you do need to be focused to crack it. If anything else it also helps pass the time when you have a few moments spare.

We’re starting to see more and more online security challenges appearing both within online live environments such as this one as well as the likes of in addition to downloadable virtual machines of De-ICE which are built to practice pen-testing within a safe environment creating goals to achieve before moving on to the next target.

This can only to be a positive development for the security community enabling more talent to come through and be able to develop their skills and set a benchmark.

Get your friends involved for some friendly competition. Like us, you may even be able to avoid doing the washing up for a week!

Let us know your thoughts on the game and any other challenges you would like to share via the comments thread below. But please don’t give any tips or tricks away. That’s all part of the fun.

You can play the game for yourself by going to –

Good luck!
