Every player can join multiple teams.
Every player must take part in at least one team. If you wanna participate solo, just create a team and you're good
(you will be the only person in your team). Only teams appear on the scoreboard.
- Don't share flags with your team. That is cheating. Submit the flag yourself, and it will be counted for all the teams
you are a member of.
Denial of Service attacks are not cool. Seriously. Everybody can DOS a tiny corporation. No honor in that.
There are no crazy tricks or magic steps you need to take (well maybe once or twice). The challenges are logical and follow a logical path.
You never need to brute-force anything in Hack Dat kiwi. Well sometimes you do, but those things are always on your own computer, not on our servers or networks. Don't brute-force us.
Each challenge needs to be solved independently. You should not use the vulnerabilities of one challenge to leak the flag of another challenge.
Any questions or concerns you have, shoot them at IRC chat or email.

Cheating (i.e giving solutions or flags to other players) is not ok. After the contest, logs will be analyzed and cheaters will be penalized.
If you only know one category, just focus on that category. Category winners will also receive prizes.
News and announcements will be available on the portal.
Don't worry about receiving the prize. We will work with you to get it done!
Don't do anything illegal. Also don't attempt to hack the portal. Hack that kiwi, not this one. I'm serious.

other possible prizes. No single person will receive more than 200 prize points.
