Kudos to our Laurel Branch Hackathon MAGIC’s Fourth Capture the Flag, Cybersecurity Competition third place winners: Leonid Burlachuk, Paul Chilcote, Jared Perdue and Andrew Valliere of UMUC Team-1. They discovered the clues, solved all the puzzles even with technical difficulties that slowed them down and beat the clock! More
