Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to bring something?
Yes, please bring your laptop and the charger.
Do I have to have something installed on my machine?
A Linux Machine would be prefered, but if you don’t have one, please install VirtualBox and get Kali Linux VM ahead of time.
Is anything off-limits during the adventure?
Absolutely not. No code or exploit during Avast Cyber Adventure will be illegal. It is an exercise performed on Virtual Machines prepared specifically for this event and there will be no harm done by exploiting them for educational purposes.
What tools should I be familiar with?
Well, there are no minimum requirements, but if you are familiar with tools like nmap or metasploit, it would be very helpful.
Are there ML requirements?
For the majority of ML challenges we recommend you use Python with numpy, pandas, scikit-learn and your favorite graphic library. Packages scipy and tensorflow will be also useful.
Any other requirements?
We suggest you have a Linux machine like Ubuntu or Debian with ability to run VMs like Kali-Linux. It would be best to have Kali prepared (https://www.kali.org/downloads/) before the day’s activities. It’ll help to have a hex editor and Wireshark installed as well. Also, if you want to hack a drone, you’ll need a USB Wi-Fi that has a monitoring mode and packet injection. For hardware track you will need to connect to a specific network via LAN, so if your laptop needs it, bring the LAN adapter.
How big are the teams?
Teams should be between 3 to 5 people.
What if I don't have a team?
That’s absolutely fine, there will be a team forming at 9:40. CTF will start at 10:00.
