CCDC Red Teamer's Creed


This is my box. There are many like it, but they are all mine.

My malware is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.

My malware, without me, is useless. Without my malware, I am useless. I must drop my malware true. I must rootkit better than my enemy who is trying to kill my binary. I must kit him before he kits me. I will…

My malware and I know that what counts in this war is not the boxes we pop, the noise of our root dance, nor the cheers coming from the Red Team room. We know that it is the root that count. We will root…

My malware is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strength, its parts, its extensions, its dlls and its exes. I will keep my malware av free and ready, even as I am ready. We will become part of each other. We will…

Before God, I swear this creed. My malware and I are the defenders of my botnet. We are the masters of our enemy. We are the saviors of my shells.

So be it, until victory is the Red Team’s and there is no enemy, but peace!
