"As a team, we gave it our best and look forward to venture into the field of IT security in the near future," said Little Pwnies MMU team leader Tan Jin Fu.

The competition was organised by F-Secure in partnership with MDeC (Multimedia Development Corporation) in attempt to develop local talents and encourage more Malaysian undergraduates to venture into the field of IT security through education.

The objective of the competition was to provide opportunities for all full-time IT undergraduates enrolled in all Malaysian public and private universities to participate in a friendly competition during which they were able to apply their academic knowledge and personal interest in the field of IT security.
