We’ve done a platform tuning job to make it responsive, so that you can access any resolution, even from your smartphone.
Now you can read and browse the lessons, interact in our forum, check the ranking, view job openings, player profiles and companies on any mobile device while playing on the computer.
As part of the new look, we applied a darker theme, making Shellter more comfortable to study in half light. We remodeled components, nomenclatures and more to make it easier to locate and navigate inside the platform.
We have reach the end of #CarnavalHacking. The event was awesome and we are very happy with the engagemnt of all the team.
Congratulations to everyone who played. Special Congratulations (and prizes) to the winner team, DeathinReverse!
Here’s the final result!
Oh! And get ready, because as the Starks would say: “Contests are coming!” 😀 Stay tuned in our facebook page and our platform because other special events are coming. Not to mention the SHX, that happens eery 15 days.
Yesterday we’ve added a new feature along with SHX2: Individual Labs. Don’t worry if you were not there, we will explain here what you missed…
With this feature, each user will have his own challenge.
– “What do you mean?”, you may ask.
What we mean is that each user will have a unique and isolated environment to play on remote challenges, so it will not be interfering on another user challenge. Cool, right?
This will be available during contests but also on past challenges at CTF-Master section. On the next weeks we will be adding more and more remote challenges so you can practice and learn. But we already have 4 remote challanges available. So don’t waste time! Go ahead and try the new feature!
Click on the “Start” button to start your environment:
You will receive the information you need( a.k.a IP and PORT):
Now it´s all on you. Take those information and pwn it al!
You can stop and restart your environment if you need to.
We hope this update makes your learning process even funnier, and with a lot of practicing. Thanks for all the feedback we get from you every day! We truly appreciate you helping us build a better place to learn.
On January 15, 2017, we will make the first Shellter Hacking Express (SHX).
And what is SHX? You must be wondering. Well, SHX is an event that will take place on average every 15 days on Sundays. You may have noticed that the past CTF issues that are available on Shellter are worth very few points, correct? The questions that matter most will give you only 100 points, and are very difficult to solve. By participating in SHX, you will have the opportunity to earn more points, and climb the ranking faster.
Yes, all SHX issues will be available after the event ends, but they will only be worth 20% of what they were worth during the event. So be sure to get join live.
The SHX # 1 will begin at 5:00 pm UTC, and will last only 4 hours. The 3 issues will involve problems in Python. Do you really understand the language? Do you know the the weakest points?
We are happy to annouce the launch of a Shellter update, with a fresh dashboard and some new features.
The first thing you will notice is the main screen. Now when you log in, you have a dashboard showing core information like your current status, top 10 ranking, week progress, latest challenges tries and active forum topics… by the way, did I mention that we have a forum now? Yes, we have! Now you can discuss security with your fellow hackers and improve our community. Please, use wisely and respect the rules. 🙂
We also introduced the Play category. This category consists of everything related to your learning path and practice of security skills.
Here you will have introductory lessons on basics of information security and also how to start playing with Shellter. There will be 9 lessons, 1 lesson released per week.
The good old CTF. Here you have past CTF challenges so you can practice and keep you sharp.
We wil be hosting Capture The Flag contests. Mainly Jeopardy style. So if you are interested on hosting your CTF on Shellter, feel free to contact us 🙂
The first contest will be Saturday, 25, organized by Sucuri HC. Don’t miss it! Go to Contests page and register yourself.
More learning paths is to come. Keep posted and good hacking!
It has been a few months of testing and development of Shellter, and it stills a work in progress, but all that we built until now was only possible because we had a little help of some special people.
It is with great pleasure that we thank Intel for sponsoring and believing in our project since the begging. Thanks Epic Leet Team(ELT), especially Alisson Bertochi, Sidnei Baron and Eliezer Bernart for helping with early testing. Another important peace of the this project is our friend Fábio Cerqueira, whom we seek help every time we have development problems or need new ideas to make Shellter always better.
Thank you all for supporting us and helping on Shellter.
