UCSB Hackers Advance in Worldwide Competition

A group of hackers from UC Santa Barbara is one of the top teams to advance in a cyber security contest that began with 18,000 undergraduate students from around the world. 

New York University's Tandon School of Engineering hosted a 48-hour cyber security contest on Sept. 16 known as Capture the Flag (CTF), and UCSB's team, Shellphish, came out in the top ten of all United States teams. 

The group is comprised of Andrew Dutcher, Caitlin Scarberry and Brandon Dutcher.
