Submission + - New DefCon Contest: 0wn the box? Own the box! (defcon.org)

sk00t writes: "We are hard at work on a new contest for DefCon 15: 0wn the box? Own the box! It's sort of "hacker pinkslips"... It's based on Dragos Ruiu's "pwn to own" contest at CanSec, but we've extended it a bit. Defenders are asked to bring a hardened machine running at least two services, and if it's successfully compromised the attacker walks away with it.

We'd like to invite the Slashdot community to lug some gear out and test their defensive kung fu. More info, a list of entries, and the CFB (Call for Boxen) are at the contest thread on the DefCon forums."
