The next ColaSec meetup we will be taking a look at the hacking game Pwn Adventure 3, which was featured at Shmoocon and in this article on WIRED. The game is a massively multiplayer online (MMO) game, where objectives are completed by hacking the game.
We have setup a server to run the game. Attendees will need to bring a laptop and download the game client from the Pwn Adventure 3 site. After downloading and installing, launch the client to run an update on it.
Some other things attendees might want to install/bring is a decompiler program to view the game files, like .NET Reflector. I've also found a walkthrough that uses utilizes Wireshark, so that might come in handy as well. Speaking of walkthroughs, feel free to do a little research ahead of time. Here are some links to get your started:
Ghost in the Shellcode - Home of the Pwn Adventure. Has walkthroughs on last year's version.
PwnAdventure3 - Main website.
Dead Packet Society - A walkthrough using Wireshark.
List of tools for static code analysis - Wikipedia
This exercise is something I've never done before and I those most of the group hasn't done before, so I'm hoping we can all learn and grow from the game together.
