Android Hacking Event 2017

The Mobile Security Lab, the Business Unit of Consulthink specialized in mobile Security, participated in the latest Android Hacking Event 2017.

The competition, an international event opened to all Android security experts, involved two distinct phases.

During the first one, organized as a “Capture the Flag” challenge, the various participating teams compared online and in real time, to solve the greatest possible number of challenges as quickly as possible and then to bring home as many as possible “flags”.

In a second phase, the competition envisaged the possibility of publishing the solutions, both for the resolved challenges and for those that had remained unresolved. In this phase, the components of the Mobile Security Lab achieved excellent results, they were the first who published the solution to many of the challenges and also they received thanks by the organizers of the event.

The results obtained confirm the excellence expressed by the Mobile Security Lab in the field of verification of the security levels of infrastructures and mobile applications, excellence built through advanced research and application in the field of the most effective assessment techniques.
