Legitimate hacking

Here is a small paragraph about a forthcoming event in Malaysia (oh, by the way, I've changed two pieces of information in it, just in case the paragraph gets hacked):

Malaysia's annual IT security conference, InfoSecurity, will this year feature a hacking contest which is open to the public.

Contestants will be asked to capture "eletronic flags" planted in systems located in one or more rooms of the venue, The Star Online reports.

The flaws in the target system and the methods used to hack will be the subject of a presentation on the last day of the three-day conference which begins on September 24.

Winners will get a Palm computer, second place will get two Palm computers and third place three Palm computers.

Contestants will have to bring their own computers to access the target network.
Itching to pack your bags, yet?
