We can meet at Neomonde at 6pm unless anyone has an aversion to awesome mediterranean food. I'd love to hear what you all are up to, and if it gets too quiet I have plenty of news from the projects I'm working on, the Shmoocon conference, and the OWASP summit I'll be attending remotely this week.
About the Metasploit talk:
Ryan Linn is a local security geek and has contributed some interesting code to Metasploit and other open source tools. He'll be given a metasploit presentation using the new Armitage gui that's in the SVN version of Metasploit.
Ryan's tweet about the talk:
Talking about Backtrack, Metasploit, Armitage and more hawtness at @trilug meeting Feb 10. You know you wanna come find out more!
Here's the TriLUG propaganda:
When we deploy Linux servers on the Internet, they are exposed to the entire world, and they may be vulnerable to attacks. How can we know that they are secure?
As part of the security team at SAS, Ryan Linn tests systems against vulnerabilities, and he recommends ways to mitigate the risks. The tools that he uses are open source, and very sophisticated.
Ryan will introduce us to Backtrack4, the LiveCD with hacking in mind. He will show us how to use the tools to scan a network for vulnerable machines, test a target machine against a list of known vulnerabilities, and how to take control over a machine. PWN3D.
The world-wide Internet - you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. Backtrack4 is a must-have tool for anyone planning to put a computer into that environment.
