Playing around with some ideas we found ourselves creating a hacker magnet. Game of Hacks, built using the node.js framework, displays a range of vulnerable code snippets challenging the player to locate the vulnerability. A multiplayer option makes the challenge even more attractive and the leaderboard spices up things when players compete for a seat on the iron throne. Within 24 hours we had 35K players test their hacking skills...we weren't surprised when users started breaking the rules. Join us to:
