Capture The Flag #

A Capture The Flag is a cybersecurity exercise/competition, in which the goal is to find hidden flags (such as monsec{welcome_0x1337}) inside purposefully-vulnerable programs and websites, that are usually created by the event’s organisers. It is highly regarded as an ethical and safe way to learn and demonstrate cybersecurity skills.
