Positive Hack Days will be held on 23-24 May 2013 in Moscow (Russia)
Positive Hack Days is an international forum on practical information security held by Positive Technologies. The unprecedentedly large event brings together specialists from both sides of the barricade, theory and practice, professional discussion and fascinating competitions.
The forum is hosting a record number of participants — more than 2,000 people, among whom are leading information security experts, the most important personalities of the hacking scene, students and young scientists, government representatives, CIO and CISO of the largest Russian and foreign companies.
Two days of non-stop activities:
- information about the most recently developed products at first hand
- discussions, seminars, round tables
- CTF contests among the world’s best hacking teams
- competitions in hacking and protecting information resources
- experimenting and learning during hands-on labs under the guidance of experts.
The speakers will tell about hacking services underground market, how intruders hack iOS and Android smartphones, steal money from credit cards, penetrate SCADA, ERP, attack e-government websites, and will also speak on recent protection techniques.
Positive Hack Days is the international venue for the unification of progressive forces of the IT industry. It is about innovators interested in information security problems, it is fresh blood and bright eyes, the atmosphere of a huge research ground, communication between people sharing the same views and their opponents, minimum formalities and maximum practice.
Please check Hash Runner on the contest list: http://phdays.com/program/contests/
The competitors will be provided with a list of hash functions generated according to various algorithms (MD5, SHA-1, BlowFish, GOST3411, etc.). Points for each decrypted password are scored according to the algorithm’s level of difficulty. To become a winner, a competitor should gain the most points in a limited period of time, leaving the rivals behind.

Happy new year
The year 2012 is over and 2013 has begun. Happy new year to all.
I have decided to do a dual-release of both oclHashcat-plus v0.10 and oclHashcat-lite v0.11.
That is because both programs share many of the changes that have been done in the last months.
The most time I spend adding two major features to oclHashcat-plus (see changes below).
They could also enable me to move the high-speed brute-force from oclHashcat-lite into oclHashcat-plus in the next version.
Chances that this plan will work out are high. If it does, it would enable me to fusion oclHashcat-plus and oclHashcat-lite into a single one.
My original plan for this release was to wait for a more recent catalyst driver, since this is what most of us use.
But the new year and the timebomb forces me to release this sooner as expected. Thats why there is a small number of known bugs left.
Support added for mixed gpu types.
Support added for restore/resume.
Support added for sessions.
Support added for new SHA-3 algorithm.
Support added for loading dictionaries in parallel while GPU is cracking.
Support added for autotuning.
Support added for dictionary word counter cache.
We are proud to present oclHashcat-plus v0.09!
Download it here: http://hashcat.net/oclhashcat-plus/
Lots of new features and algorithms have been added, and many bugs have been fixed.
The major changes are:
- Support for cracking the bcrypt and sha512crypt ($6$) algorithms.
- Support for GPU clustering across multiple LAN hosts via VCL, and an increase to support 128 GPUs.
- Added what we call a Brute-Force++ attack (see details for description).
- Increased cracking performance, especially on multi-hash due to partially reversing as you know it from single-hash cracking.
The new version of the cpu cracker hashcat was released. Many new hash modes and new features were added. Download it now!
* changes v0.39 -> v0.40:
First Hashcat release to support OS X!
The contest is over. Congrats to team hashcat
