What we're about

The St. Louis 2600 meetup is a monthly meeting dedicated to hacking in all it's forms. An expansion of the original meetings started by the long running magazine of the same name as an open forum for anyone of any age, or level of expertise, to come and learn. Meetups are held on the first Friday of every month all over the world and here in St. Louis. The Meetup is held at Arch Reactor, St. Louis first Hackerspace, and usually gets started around 6pm.

The meetup will normally consist of a presentation, followed by discussion. If you'd like to make a presentation, please let the organizers know at least a week or two ahead of time so we can make sure to have time allotted. Presentations on any topic related to hacking, privacy, or computers are welcome. Presentations also don't need to be very in depth, feel free to bring presentations that are just introductions to things you think are cool.

Launder Your Hacking Skimask! We Gonna Hacker LARP This Month!

Admittedly Bob and I have been phoning it in for the past several months. Literally. Not the fake "literally" when people are literally exaggerating. I literally mean literally. I mean we've been calling into a web conference with our phones. I suppose it's entirely possible most of you think we've been figuratively phoning it in as well. Regardless, the novelty of virtual STL2600 + DC314 meetings is definitely wearing thin. Attendance has been a bit thin, and I can't really blame anyone. Who want's to voluntarily attend yet another web conference on Friday nights and listen to a couple of blowhards prattle on? Well we are going to try and shake things up a little bit. Unfortunately not in an real-life in-person kind of way. But at least hopefully in a way that will still be fun for everyone. So enough padding the description length and get right too the what we are actually doing this month. We are going to do some collaborative web-app hacking. Bob and I did some browsing through VulnHub's catalog of exploitable VMs and found one we can all do over the web. It's got a little bit of a narrative to make it more engaging. It's not super hard, but not super easy either. I'm pretty sure most of the concepts needed we've covered at a previous 2600 meeting at some point, and anything we haven't is pretty simple. Anyway, the goal of the evening is for everyone working together and sharing info to try and reach the goal. Bob and I have gone through it and will be there to advise. We'll have the VM hosted online so everyone can access it (provided bandwidth holds out). All you'll need is a copy of Kali Linux to participate. If you don't have one, you can get a copy at https://www.kali.org/downloads/ and run it in your own VM or computer. So hopefully this will be fun for everybody. If so, Bob and I will pick out some more we can do for subsequent months. Or if everyone hates it, we can go back to our usual presentation format. Or maybe a miracle will happen and all this plague stuff will be cured, vaccinated, or magically vanish and we can hang out in meatspace again. And trust believe me, the day we can hang out safely in meatspace again we are going to party. Until then, let's see if this works. Jitsi link for this month is https://meet.jit.si/STL2600Oct
