jzman Posted January 4, 2010 Share Posted January 4, 2010 Just recently i have stumbled upon the idea of setting up a hak5 hackme server. The idea is that every week there will be a new crack-me challenge. There will be an accompanying website that shows statistics and what are the new competitions with a way for users to give feedback effectively. One example of a competition would be to just exploit a very early version of apache. I want to set this up just for educational purposes only. I also want help people explore new tools and techniques for offensive security and to inspire them on what defensive security measures they should be taking with their servers/projects while they are having fun doing it. I do not want people to use this service for malicious purposes or to inspire people to crack into other people's networks/computers. If the service gets abused it can be taken down in a very prompt manner. The whole event would be community driven and It seems like a fun project that i can attempt and see how it plays out, but i want your opinion, should i even attempt to start this service, what are the pros/cons of this, what platform or security measures should i take? I would appreciate any advice, thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
