UrFU's HackerDom wins Nuit du Hack competition in Paris

For the second consecutive year, Ural Federal University's HackerDom group was named the winner of the this year's Nuit du Hack information technology competition held in Paris last week.

Comprised of university IT students, faculty and research fellows, HackerDom will go on to represent UrFU this August in the DEFCON competition to be held in Las Vegas.

While competing in Sunday's Nuit du Hack, HackerDom faced off against 300 teams comprised of fellow students and area IT professionals alike. Ultimately, UrFU's team bested the remaining nine teams in the competition's final round. French group SoSix placed second.
