What can my role be

I do not have special over-average programming skills.

When you look into my profile:

Interests: What somebody else cannot do

Maybe you add me to the team, where I only can bring in my creativity and the experience of having fixed tenths of emergencies.

BTW: I created jpeg files a bit earlier than Billy the Door ...
Maybe I find the code anywhere and will publish in our "museum" ...

Nice joke Peter, do I need to say explicitely that Team Reboot needs you?:cheers:

Which code are you talking about? I didn't really get this part.

  • Different file formats, e.g. Windows PE, ELF x86, JPEG from the lowest level

Actually, and just for the record, I don't think that (exceptionally and limited to this single case) Billy is to be blamed. :cheers:

All the blame for the stoopid format should be put on the guys (self-appointed as "experts") that formed the:

As often happens with committees the result is IMHO well worse that what could have been developed .... :cheers:

Alongwith the publication of Challenge #10 by DarkPhoeniX, I've made a few semi-major changes in the scripts of challenge site. This alters the UI to some extent, but mostly it affects the backend. Let me know if you are facing any problem. Also communicate if you expect anything specific from the challenge interface. It'll be a great help if you can find out any possible exploit.

I guess, quite a few forum members won't appreciate the fact that some forum posts suddenly require a privileged access while at the same time appearing in the common list of Recent Posts. It doesn't exactly look and feel (smell) like roses. :) Since Team Reboot appears to be small, why don't conduct your private exchange by using the Forum Messenger, which itself is setup like a private forum thus ideally fitting that exact role.

Another question would be, what clear set of criteria allows to be named (opted in, selected as, voted in, called as, marked for...) Team Reboot member, and who is that privileged to assign to others such entitlement? :dubbio: Where is the link to current Team Reboot Member List with Bios & Accomplishments (if any) :chair: ?

Whatever topics are being hidden from reboot members, they fall into either of these categories
  • Information what we need to discuss within the team, like strategies, which must be kept hidden from other teams playing CTF.
  • Discussions on the next challenge to be published
  • General discussions
For #1, do you have any means to make the content accessible for non-CTF-playing reboot members yet masking it from an apparent junior member who's basically from our peer CTF teams?

For #2, would you like to get the solution of challenges first & then the challenges itself?

By no chance, #3 will interest non-Team-Reboot members. Those discussions are not at all technical.

Since Team Reboot appears to be small, why don't conduct your private exchange by using the Forum Messenger, which itself is setup like a private forum thus ideally fitting that exact role.

It won't work, I bet. We were continuing all our discussions using google groups till now. It has become unmanageable.

Another question would be, what clear set of criteria allows to be named (opted in, selected as, voted in, called as, marked for...) Team Reboot member

Only your interest about security related stuffs & participating in CTF competitions. It's open to ALL reboot members & in many cases I've personally requested many members to join Team Reboot. It's nothing like an "elite" group of members being given "higher-privilege" in form of Team Reboot, be rest assured.

and who is that privileged to assign to others such entitlement? :dubbio:

Big Boss

Where is the link to current Team Reboot Member List with Bios & Accomplishments (if any) :chair: ?

Probably this is what you are looking for.

Thanks. Can confidential Team Reboot posts be excluded from showing up on Recent Posts List? I'm certain, it creates a lot of confusion and disappointment for most members, when they click on such a post and can't read it. Especially since number of such posts started growing exponentially lately. :)
