We are Crackchester

A society dedicated to Cyber Security.

Crackchester, formed by current students at the University of Manchester aims to educate people on CyberSec via holding workshops, competitions, publishing writeups and other extracurricular activities related to cyber-security.

What do these competitions look like?

These competitions are mostly CTFs.

Capture The Flag (CTF) is a computer security wargame, where each participating individual or team competes to find the flag (key) by solving problems or hacking the prepared boxes. Usually, it involves many security fields, such as web hacking, binary reverse engineering, exploitation, forensics, cryptography, etc.
