Our previous Live Hacking Events

Every live hacking event is unique, and we work closely with you to determine the exact specifications that will help you best achieve your objectives. If, however, you’re looking for inspiration, some of our previous event formats can provide examples of approaches you might want to take. 

Yahoo’s 1337UP0822 

Choosing 40 security researchers and in-scope targets including their open-source text engine tool Vespa, this event kicked off virtually prior to the physical event, before the hackers came together for two days to hack under one roof.

With 218 vulnerability submissions and a total bounty payout of $240,000, the event was a resounding success and provided a deep introspection of Yahoo’s assets. Read more about the event  →

Visma’s 1337UP1121 

Visma’s first Live Hacking Event ran virtually for two weeks, finding 251 vulnerabilities. These included two reports of exceptional-severity bugs, two critical flaws, and two zero-day vulnerabilities. 

The success of 1337UP1121 led Visma to continue with live hacking events, opting for a physical event the second time round where they opted to test their accounting program, e-conomic.  Read more about the event  →

How do Live Hacking Events work? 

Live Hacking Events are always tailored to your needs. We work with you to define and plan the event to ensure you achieve your objectives. There are four key questions we will answer together: 


Where it will be held and whether it will be a physical or virtual event. This can be a location of your choosing and can also be a combination of physical and virtual. While physical events benefit from the social buzz and face-to-face interactions, virtual events can produce an equally impressive hacking performance. 


The duration of the event. While hugely flexible, most tend to go for 24-48 hours. One option can be to run a virtual version of the event over a longer period of time, even several weeks, while still carrying out the physical event over a few days. 


Defining the scope of the project and who exactly will be in attendance. Live Hacking Events are particularly effective at testing more mature security assets. The hackers themselves are hand-selected, and we will help connect you with the right skill sets in our community that are required for your project.


Marketing opportunities

How we will promote, run, and triage the event. This includes all marketing operations you would like to engage in, with the option to hold a quieter affair always available. While our renowned triage team will be available to you, there is also the option to use a team of your choosing.

Live Hacking Events FAQ

Yes! These are separate products, and while there are many advantages to running both, there is no necessity. Live Hacking Events tend to be most appropriate when testing mature assets within a short timeframe, but they can be performed regardless of whether you have adopted any other crowdsourced solutions.

The hackers themselves are hand-selected, and we will help connect you with the right skill sets in our community that are required for your project
