A Friday evening in December 2018,
I had a friend over for a couple of beers. We stared talking about the ctfs.me CTF I was playing.
We watched a video write-up from LiveOverflow.
My friend got excited about the challenge in the write up. We checked if there were any events that weekend and we signed up for X-mas CTF as BawlSec and managed to finish 262th.
This is how it started.
