We have a new venue sponsored by TXRX Labs (http://txrxlabs.org). If you haven't been to TXRX labs its 16,000-square-foot hacker space on the east side of downtown. They provide educational classes like Intro to LinuxCNC (http://txrxlabs.org/classes/intro-to-linuxcnc-fall-2013_172/) and host recreational programming events. (http://txrxlabs.org/event/348/recreational-computer-programming-group/) They also have classes on knitting, welding, soldering, bike repair, and pancakes. This is a great space for learning in Houston and that's why we're exploring its use for OWASP workshops.
Our first Workshop topic for 2014 will be an introduction to Metasploit led by Dennis Maldonado(@DennisMald).
Dennis is a security enthusiast/researcher with an interest in web application security and how web application vulnerabilities can be used to gain a foothold into the network.
Dennis will be hosting a workshop on Metasploit and how it can be utilized for web application security assessments.
If you haven't been to an OWASP Houston Workshop before, you are encouraged to bring a laptop to follow along with the presentation, ask questions, and test out concepts. Dennis recommends bringing the latest version of Metasploit (currently 4.8.2) and Kali Linux (Currently 1.0.6, any architecture)
Questions/Audience Participation 8PM-9PM
We will update this event to include more details as we confirm them.
