Python Arsenal Contest


There are plenty of bug bounty programmes now, where hackers are paid for finding vulnerabilities or patching software. There are also exploit contests. In the end, all of this is done for the vendor's benefit.

But the drive behind it is the hacker's prowess and tools.

This is a contest of tools which help solve complex RE tasks. We believe that the whole security community will benefit here because all of your plugins will be available to everyone for the sake of experience exchange.
