The JAV hacker team from Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB) has chosen to represent Indonesia to the ASEAN level hacking competition in Bangkok Thailand in November 2017, after winning the national cyber competition “Cyber Jawara” at “Code Bali 2017” event in Legian, Kuta, Bali , September 26-28.

The team that won composed of Jason Jeremy Iman, Aufar Gilbran and Muhamad Visat Sutarno. They managed to excel slightly from their closest competitor, Tim Usagi Security from the University of Indonesia, then the third position team “Neither Fast Nor Accurate” from IPB.
“We did not expect to win because the test was very varied, complicated and challenging,” said Jason from the ITB team.
