Create a means of identifying successful hacks
For some time I couldn't figure out what the "times hacked" counter means. It looks to me now that it's basically a number of hits per hackme. I think it's nice to define a key input somewhere so that those who successfully hack a particular hackme would type that key in and this would mean "hacked".
Hi Nikki, once again thank you for your support.
You guessed “hacked times” stands for the number of times that you started the hackme.
Your idea is not bad, just that restrict the number of use cases hackme. Try to think of a basic installation of wordpress where to install the plugin for testing .. in this case would be meaningless. However, it would be interesting in the case in which there was a CTF: p
I like the idea, I think about a little and see what can be the possible use cases.
If you have ideas or suggestions, I’m all ears.
I completely agree, I believe some kind of flag may be useful, especially since some are quite easy (but you are not sure if it can be THAT easy).
I believe CTF methodology will be good (and kind of easy to implement), anyhow it can always have some variety (sometimes a flag, sometimes download a file, sometimes to reach a website, etc... I believe hackthissite, etc. can give some ideas).
Congrats for the great work!
An idea would be to have that "times validated" (or whatever name it would have, imho it would make sense to have the current "times hacked" renamed to something like "hits" or "times attacked", and the validation field named "times hacked") available only when the HackMe is in the "CTF" category. When chosing this category, an additional "validation flag" option would be available. When attacking the HackMe, users would be able to submit the flag, and thus incrementing the validation counter.
