Deep CTF poster from Twitter

Deep CTF was a 24 hour CTF conducted on April 4th and started at 4 p.m. IST. I loved the CTF as it was not a very low level beginner but neither was it a tough CTF where we could not solve most problems.

I like how the tried to cover most of cybersecurity topics such as Reversing, Crypto, Web, OSINT, Misc, and Forensics. Though many of us expected Pwning challenges sadly it was not meant to be.

Many of the Misc challenges were quite interesting such as the SSH challenge and “Bottled Files”

Deep CTF I would recommend as a good CTF for starters.

Though what I wished for is more variety of problems such as from Pwning and also I noticed they gave quite a lot of problems for Cryptogtaphy and Forensics. I hope they talk this into consideration next year.

But my team ZH3R0 got 11th place happily!!!
