Subject: CMIYC 2018 cracking-based quest (contest) at DerbyCon, 5 October 13:00 -- 7 October 15:00 UTC

There will Crack Me If You Can contest at DerbyCon again. It will in
the form of "game".
>From their site:
Crack Me If You Can (CMIYC) Challenge 
Friday 9am to Sunday 11am (online challenge)

The annual password cracking contest “Crack Me If You Can” returned this
year to DEFCON, and are returning to DerbyCon as well!
Compete online in a 50 hour password cracking contest against the best
password crackers in the world.  KoreLogic changed the rules last year,
and this year’s challenge is less of a point-war, and more of a string
of challenges with the goal being the first team to the end, wins! The
contest will be online “forever” so you can play along at a later time,
to see how long it takes you to finish. You think you can beat Team
Hashcat’s time? What about the Cynosure Prime people? See how you stack
up against John-Users. All worthy adversaries. Spend 50 hours of your
CON behind a wall of GTX 2080s.

It was very cool and very intensive previous time. We finished in 27
hours then. You may get the idea starting from the following url:

The hash types were rather fast, there were not many hashes. The contest
was more about creativity and ability to switch quickly between thinking
and implementing of ideas.

You may participate on your own or with other team. You may john team
john-users; see the following page. ;-)
