Thanks to all of you who participated in our #h1-2006 CTF! We had a lot of fun building it, and it looks like many of you had a great time participating. As promised, our three winners will be invited to hack at our next live hacking event with PayPal! The first ten participants who found the flag and submitted a valid write-up will also receive five private invites on our platform!
On May 26 at 12:39 PM, our CEO, Marten Mickos informed us that he has lost access to our BountyPay account, so we asked our community of hackers to help us get our account back and give us a hand by processing our next batch of bounties. Here’s how it went down:
h1-2006 CTF activity
• The first submission came in at about 23 hours and 54 minutes after the initial launch

We’ll publish all the write-ups and submissions next week on the official h1-CTF program on HackerOne. Thank you to everyone who submitted! And special thanks to @adamtlangley for all that you did to make this one of our most challenging and popular CTFs!
Congratulations to our winners, and we look forward to sharing our next CTF with you!
