Bogus “CyBRICS” events precaution
6 December 2022
⚠️ Please Note: competition runners of CyBRICS Capture The Flag 2019, 2020 and 2021 (SPbCTF community) have not announced any plans on holding CyBRICS in 2023.
If anyone invites you to support, endorse or take part in an event claiming to be “CyBRICS”, we advise against looking at previous years’ CyBRICS CTFs to gauge the new event’s level, and suggest treating it as a separate event with no prior history—previous showrunners and challenge developers are not associated with running that one.
Thank you to all the teams playing! We're really glad you joined us and hope you enjoyed some of our challenges =)
