Using CloudFlare and still leaking real IP address?

Recently I ran across interesting challenge. Some friends had problems with their service. Providing brand new service and having someone on the other side executing DDoS this service is not very promising beginning for some startup. Therefore, I decided to tackle this challenge and at the end it was not very hard to find leakage.

Digital Challenge

Digitalni izzivDigital Challenge is a competition in the field of computer and information security. Currently, it is a side event at a conference. The purpose of the challenge is to provide an attractive infosec activity through various challenges which will encourage the visitors to be more creative in using of computers and information technologies. Also, we want the challenge to demonstrate various concepts of information security in a entertaining way.

The challenge consists of more and less difficult tasks, which can be solved in arbitrary order by using a specially designed web portal. Normally, the participants will not need any special tools – in most cases, a web browser will suffice; however in some cases special tools might be needed to access the competition servers in different ways. On the web portal and on the screens at the conference, it will be possible to observe the progress (number of solved tasks and the sum of points for each participant) of the hackers almost in real time. At the official ending ceremony, the most successful hackers will receive practical awards.

At the beginning…

And it is up! Our new web page is up and running. We planned to be place where we will occasionally tell our thoughts about actual matters from the information security areas. With this we will contribute to better IT security in your systems, bring some new ideas or just simply express our thoughts about challenges that we are facing on a daily basis.

First I must admit, that until now I haven’t been writing any blogs, so this is even my firt blog post. I have been writing a lot of articles in student magazines, but this is quite long ago, but after that I never found time or any good reason for sharing my thoughts with all of you. And now things will not change that much. I will blog occasionally, but my colleagues will also blog, so you will have some material to read. I am still thinking, that best time to speak is when you have something to speak. If you don’t something smart to tell, then is better to be still.
