We are the Cheltenham and Gloucester chapter of DEFCON, meeting monthly for a lecture/presentation and a chat about computer hacking. You can give a false name, but you do have to say hello and give some idea as to what you're interested in. See http://dc441242.org.uk (http://dc441452.org.uk)
@Linuxthor (James Ogden) will be giving his talk "Linux Rootkit Detection: Techniques and Challenges". Where he will be looking at the effectiveness of open source Linux rootkit detection tools. Identifying some opportunities for improvement and system hardening.
Join us from 730PM with James' talks beginning at 8PM
Xmas Lightning Talks - Duration between 5 minutes and 15 minutes; no slides or projection. Christmas Cooking Competition (the *only* CCC that matters) - bring along your festive-themed food and drink stuffs to impress everyone else with (TBC if pub is cool with this). Terry's mince pies need a serious challenge. Bring and buy, swapshop, donate - see if you can get someone else to take stuff you no longer need but don't want to actually throw away!
