Probably worth noting that this one is kinda riddle based at times and its fairly old.

Old isn't always bad but in this case I think the 4th step you eventually get a 16bit binary, most systems now won't even run that now. So some of the challenges are a bit of a hassle to get through because of their age.

And to add a few more to the list:

http://pwnable.kr - Came across this pretty recently, all binary stuff at various levels. Pretty solid challenges and more accessible than overthewire or smashthestack.

https://microcorruption.com - This one is pretty cool as it takes place in your browser but you're doing low-level memory attacks. Its targeted at those with little experience in the realm and tough it doesn't exactly hold your hand, its a very nice way to learn about low-level attacks and getting used to working with a debugger.

http://www.bright-shadows.net - All sorts of challenges on here from Javascript and Web exploits to Stegano and Logic problems.

http://hellboundhackers.org - Like hackthissite they have a similar challenge setup.

http://real-forensic.com - This is more on the forensics side of things, but still a useful skill and afaik nothing really like it out there.

That riddle-based one looks really interesting. I'll look into it later. And thanks for adding more challenges, I will add these to the thread as well!

securityoverride.org is down. Just saying, I know I suggested it, but it closed.

I just want to HIGHLY recommend OverTheWire's Bandit challenge for anyone new to the linux environment or infosec. It does a great job of getting you comfortable in the terminal as well as teaching some basic tools like SSH, Netcat, and a few others that escape me right now.

If anyone is doing any OTW challenge and wants some help, feel free to PM me.

Sounds neat, I'm going to try this challenge later next week Smile

Oh, I have one to add!

Take a look at https://game.hacker.nz - it was created during KiwiCon 2011 (defcon, but for Kiwis) as a CTF exercise. It simulates an ICS workspaces, with three tiers of subnets you must pivot between in order to access the SCADA network (with the ultimate aim to put the nuclear reactor into meltdown).

It is an incredibly high quality environment, and vastly superior to trying a single VM or a single challenge, as it simulates a real interactive network that you have to hack your way through.

I must admit that whilst I rank high on this platform, I have never put the reactor into meltdown, and I beleve only a couple of users have achieved this.

Because it is a very niche war game, there aren't any guides or walkthroughs available and the creator discourages hints, etc... However, it's been bugging me for years that I haven't won, so if anyone wants to put their brains together on this (or is really stuck and wants private hints - maybe I can help you get further than me), then please reach out!

What about hackthebox.eu?

Seems pretty immersive and hands on as well.
