Wilmington design agency First Ascent, along with the Delaware chapter of OWASP, is calling on hackers to bring down targets in a “freshly minted” website.
It’s happening during Hack Attack, a live, virtual fire hacking event on Thursday, Sept. 9 from 6 to 9 p.m.

During this free event, participants can legally remotely hack the target within a sample of common production environments used in business websites (no DoS and DDoS allowed). Marketed as a fun game night where the prize is “bragging rights,” First Ascent will use what players found and were able to exploit to improve the security of their builds.
First Ascent’s cofounder, John Himics, was named a Delaware RealLIST Connector in 2020, and the company was named Design/Dev Firm of the Year at Technical.ly’s Delaware Innovation Awards in 2016. Meanwhile, OWASP DE is chapter of the security-minded, open-source software nonprofit Open Web Application Security Project.
