Two Thursday evenings ago saw the first ever DC9723 hackathon.
The evening was a great success and I certainly enjoyed it; both the social aspects and the ‘hacking’ (not to mention the free Pizza, Elbit laptop bag and fantastically fun RSA challenge which I partially did a few days later)! Kol HaKavod to Iftach Ian Amit and Itzik Kotler for making this – and DC9723 in general – happen!
I worked in a group together with a bunch of other guys dealing with creating a PoC mobile botnet for the Android platform (yes I know one already exists – but that was based on a slightly different concept). As the evening was only 5 hours long (hoping for a 24 hr hackathon next year!!), we didn’t get much coding done – except for the client-side guys; they did great!
We’re hoping to continue working on the project in our spare time to see what we can come up with, so *watch this space*.
