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.
