We were pleased to announce that CUHK Team had won the VXCTF 2018, a Capture-the-Flag (CTF) hacking contest hosted by the international hacker conference VXCON in Hong Kong. Undergraduate students in universities in Hong Kong were invited to compete in an on-site fast-paced competition to exercise different skillsets in Information Security and Computer Science for challenges including web, cryptography, reverse engineering, forensic, binary exploitation, smart contract, etc. Eight teams from various universities had shown up in this 30-hour competition. Among them, 3 were from CUHK, 4 from HKUST and 1 from CityU.
