Smashthestack.org: L33t Wargaming Network

Before i start praising this l33t h@X0r website, I would personally like you to read the famous quote taken from non other than the movie Matrix.

Morpheus: This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill – the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe.You take the red pill – you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes. 

F3ll0w Geeks, Let me introduce you to a website similar in concept to Hackthissiste.org but the game plays are extremely awesome. I proudly present you the smashthetack.org.

SO what is Smash the Stack?

The Smash the Stack Wargaming Network hosts several Wargames. A Wargame in our context can be described as an ethical hacking environment that supports the simulation of real world software vulnerability theories or concepts and allows for the legal execution of exploitation techniques. Software can be an Operating System, network protocol, or any userland application.
The Sexiest thing about some of the wargames on this website is that it lets you directly connect to their servers via ssh. Just imagine how cool it would be telling your noob pals to shut the f*** up while you attempt to complete your l33t hax0r missions.  There are  current 7 working different wargames available for you to choose  from and further these Games are divided int0 more levels.
I have tried completing the first few IO missions via ssh using my l33t h@X0r phon3 n900 and really loved the feel of it. one more thing i would like to add is that  the  speed of the ssh session is quite decent and cuz  of that  you don’t have to worry about the lag.
If your new to these kind of wargames that require SSH, i must suggest that you try reading IO Mission walkthrough from ss_sans. He has beautifully written IO missions 1 – 10 walkthroughs for smashthestack.org which would be in my opinion  good for a kick start. here is the link http://wiki.san-ss.com.ar/smashthestack-io-levels
So Fellow Geeks what are you waiting for? Go try this website. be l33t HaX0r. Take the red pill :p
Morpheus awaits you down the rabbit hole.

    Hey! I’m really new to this kind of thing.. so can you give me a hint to amateria level1? I get the idea of the whole exploit with Pickle.. I just don’t know how to execute the code on the server remotely.

    Thanks!
