MVP Challenge: Level II

Remember our previous MVP Challenge? Level II is now live!

Can you conquer our ethical hacking challenge series? For every level you complete, your name lands a sick spot in our very own Hall of MVPs! These challenges are deployed in the real-world for an immersed experience and realistic learning; and are not virtual “boxes”. Hence, our challenges are quite unique in the way they are designed.

These challenges begin at the easiest Level I, and gradually upgrade in terms of complexity with every next level to pique your curiosity and harden your abilities. Note that you can only complete these levels in the correct, intended order.

The Mission

Remember the disgruntled ex-employee from Level I? We now have information that the secret code you found in Level I was only half of it — according to a reliable source, this other half of the highly classified information has been stored in a slightly more clever and dramatic manner than the last level. We believe this was done deliberately in order for the ex-employee to buy some more time before trying to cause more damage to the organization in the future.

Now, that’s where you come in. You, as a potential Level II MVP, have to find out about this other highly classified piece of information and ethically report it to us before it falls into the wrong hands!

So, Level I… do you want to step up from being an Initiate?

What You Acquire

1. Super cool acknowledgment letter (really)

Neither do we shy out on details and elegance, nor do we underappreciate curious individuals. We have quite the cool, kick-butt acknowledgements with fine details that are different for each level, contain potential Easter eggs, etc. that make your acknowledgement stand out.

2. Your upgraded, “Level II” name in our Hall of MVPs

Another unique feature! We upgrade your name within our Hall of MVPs upon you completing the next challenge. We have quite the rad titles to these levels too.

3. Hands-on XP with practical ethical hacking concepts

Whether the reason is muscle memory, or a better overall comprehension of theoretical concepts — practical knowledge simply trumps theory. Technical, theoretical knowledge is cool, but practical knowledge solidifies it.

4. Bragging rights

If the previous two points were not enough, here’s the ultimate cherry! Go on, brag right on about you conquering our challenge(s) when you rightfully deserve to do so!

Level Specifics

Time Constraint

None — this challenge will run indefinitely.

Need to Know:

The very first password you are going to need while working on this challenge will be the Level I flag (without the “MVP{}”) that you had acquired upon successfully completing Level I of this challenge series. This system is in place to ensure that all challengers follow the correct level sequence for fair MVP titles.

You may now begin the challenge!
