Hackers from across Europe flocked to Geneva this weekend, not to play havoc with Swiss computers but to test their ethical hacking skills.
The sixth annual Insomni'hack ethical hacking competition, organised by IT security firm SCRT, drew over 300 hackers who battled for hours to solve a range of fiendish computer security challenges.
"This is essentially to have fun and learn," 32-year-old Oriol Carreras from Barcelona told AFP. He hopes Seoul and Moscow -- hotbeds of hacking on both sides of the law -- might be the location for future competitions.
