ZeroNights 2019 HackQuest starts on October 6!

ZeroNights holds its traditional HackQuest ZeroNights from the 6th to the 13th of October.

ZeroNights HackQuest is a hacking challenge before the annual ZeroNights conference. The goal is to solve tasks related to information security, including reverse engineering, web, mobile hacking, penetration testing, and more.
