Hunters Survival Game #1 : Winners & Numbers [Infographic]

4 weeks, 4 rounds. The rule was simple: the last hunter standing wins. Back to the first edition of the Hunters Survival Game.

HSG#1 was held from June 6 to July 3. For one month, some of the best Yogosha hackers competed for the title of Master of the Hunt. 

The rules were as follows:

  • No teams ;
  • 4 Rounds, each lasting one week ;
  • Score resets each round ;
  • First Blood on each program on each round gets x1.5 the kudos ;
  • Critical vulnerabilities gets x2 the kudos ;
  • Winner’s Prize: 2.500€

 

Obviously, each round was more difficult than the previous one:

  • ROUND #1 – Free for All, Top 100 Hunters were invited to participate. Targets: VDP & bug bounty programs – including non-profit ones from Hack4Values. In the end, 25% of the total participants were eliminated ;
  • ROUND #2 – Targets: All bug bounty programs. In the end, 50% of the total participants were eliminated ;
  • ROUND #3 – Targets: A selection of bug bounty programs. In the end, 75% of the total participants were eliminated ;
  • ROUND #4 – Targets: 4 bug bounty programs. In the end, the hunter with the most kudos won.

Without further ado, here are the results and some insights into the overall performance of the tournament.

A special thanks to all the participating hunters. We will keep you informed of the next HSG date. Until then, our (fantastic) triage team needs a break!
