Hack In The Box 2013 KUL

Recently we attended “Hack In The Box 2013” at the Hotel Intercontinental in Kuala Lumpur http://conference.hitb.org/hitbsecconf2013kul/. This conference has its roots in a small gathering of Malaysian security specialists back in 2002 and since then has also been held in the Netherlands, Dubai and Bahrain. It was nicely crowded (~550 people) and more than 40 speakers from around the world shared their work on a nice variety of different topics.

We attended only the two-day conference part of the event, which also included a hands-on “HITB LABS” section, a “Capture The Flag”(CTF) battle …

and a “Lock Picking Village”, amongst other things.
