What is this category for?

Why is this a category? If you find an exploit, you're supposed to submit it as a bug report, aren't you? So why is this here?

Just in case you didn't know that?

Probably to tell people "Go out and look for these bugs" rather than just hoping you'll run into one ... somehow.

This isn't even really a mission -- more a real hack attempt (legal though).

Maybe this section was created on accident in place of realistic 4?

The "HackThisSite" realistic mission is for finding actual vulnerabilities in the Hackthissite.org website. If you look in the Hall of Fame you'll see a list of the users who've done this plus some info on the exploit they found.

I know about it all. That's why I started this topic in the first place.

And if you find a vuln in the site, you are supposed to report it as private in a bug report, not post it on the forums to get huge attention and for some script kiddies to exploit.

The young man knows the rules, but the old man knows the exceptions.

Perhaps for sharing idea's... Trying to submit things like the forum time being tampered with returns the value;

The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.

:geek:

Back to the drawing board.

Do I get a "I hacked hackthissite.org" t-shirt if I win?

That would be cool.

It's only legal if you report it without abusing the exploit. Even the mission description says that you should NOT use whatever you find to wreak havoc around the site.
