Facebook Capture The Flag event @ BruCON 2014 - registration open

It is with a lot of excitement that we again announce the Facebook Capture The Flag event @ BruCON 2014.

Here are the details :
Location : Sint Autbertus Church @ Monasterium Poortackere 
Time and Date : All day, September 24th
Register : Here
Fee : 0 euros (yes, it's free!)
Teams : Maximum 4 people / team (if you don't have a team, please send an email to with the title CTF solo player. We'll match you up with a team of your own!).
Limit : Logistically, we can allow a maximum of 10 teams! Be quick!
Prizes : there will be monetary prizes for #1, #2 and #3 (yes, they're substantial. no, we're not sharing those details yet :-))

So, on September 24th we gather in the Church @ the conference hotel for a full day of hacking. Expect both your offensive and defensive skillsets to be tested to their limits. The good part is that there'll be fun and learning to be had for everybody. Do not feel like you shouldn't partake if you don't feel 1337 enough or even if you don't have a team ready. Just register and come have a great day of fun. Additionally, there's a very small chance you'll be breaking into servers while seated in a real church, right? RIGHT!

Facebook will be your host and you'll know it. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner as well as refreshments will be provided to all players and there's a very big chance we'll roll from the event straight into a pre-conference party.

Take me to that REGISTRATION page NOW!
