Advanced Hacker Meetup *Anyone Interested in Participating in CTFs

I wanted to get a feel for those that are experts or very technical in their fields to see if anyone here would like to start practicing on Capture The Flag (CTF) competitions.  Ultimately, I'd like to see if we can get a small strong group for the Def Con qualifications that should be in a couple months.

There are a lot of CTFs going on all the time and I'm just seeing if people would be interested in spending some time to participate in them.

Please note, this is a purely technical meetup for more advanced users.  What skill sets are needed:

-Binary Analysis
-Buffer Overflows
-Network Traffic Analysis

Ideal Prerequisites (Not Required But Recommended):

-Participated in prior CTFs (or willing to spend extra time to learn)
-Taken some sort of Forensics or Penetration Testing SANS or Offensive Security course (or similar)
-Well versed in Windows and Linux
-Understands Backtrack/Metasploit/Pentoo/etc

If you have any questions, feel free to email me.  I will try to still have the monthly general LETHAL meetups pending funds and time.

UPDATE: I developed a 100 level challenge just for you guys.  If you guys want to be part of this ctf team, you are going to have to solve this challenge.  If you can solve this challenge, follow the directions, and pat yourself on the back.  Challenge located here:

UPDATE 2: Some of you did the 100 challenge pretty quick!  Awesome.  If you are bored, I made another challenge for you.   This is a forensics 100 challenge.  If you already finished the challenge from Update 1, you don't need to do this one to be added to the CTF mailing list.  Challenge located here:  Also, I move the date back a week due to some pentests.

Even if you can't make it to the next CTF meetup, do the challenge, follow the instructions after you finish the challenge, and you'll be added to the list.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
