Our undergraduate students Odysseas Stavrou, Dimitrios Angelou, Stavros Damianakis, Georgios Konofaos, and Stavros Tsiambokalos of the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) and members of the Cybersecurity Team TUCsec of the Technical University of Crete (TUC) participated in the annual Hack the Box world competition for universities, UniCTF 2022, which was held on December 2-4, 2022. The team won the 10th place worldwide (among 950 teams and 4500 players) and at the same time the 1st place in Greece (with entries from the National Technical University of Athens, the University of West Attica, the University of Macedonia, and the University of Crete in the top 100 positions).
The top ten list is made up of the following teams:
|Place||Team||CTF points||Rating points|
|1||Hasso Plattner Institute||7875.000||49.800|
|6||University of Warwick||6400.000||24.386|
|7||SIGINT - UoE||6225.000||23.240|
|8||Radboud Institute of Pwning||6225.000||22.795|
|10||Technical University of Crete||5650.000||20.355|
The Hack the Box UniCTF contest is held annually, since 2019, and is exclusively for universities. The 2022 competition started on Friday, December 2, 2022 at 15:00 and ended on Sunday, December 4, 2022 at 21:00. It consisted of 22 challenges, out of which the TUC students solved 16 and completely cleared the categories of Forensics, FullPwn, and Cloud.
This important international distinction comes as a result of continuous presence and distinctions of TUC School of ECE student teams in annual computer science and engineering contests.
