General Meeting: Hackfest

2012/01/10 7:30 pm
2012/01/10 9:00 pm

Instead of a regular speaker, this month we are going to do a hackfest. Like the previous hackfests we will take half of the meeting to conduct lightning talks from the first four people who sign up for one. After that we will spend the rest of the time in a more loosely-structured social setting where everyone can show each other what they have been working on or ask for help. This would be a good meeting to bring your computers.

General Meeting: Practice Penetration Testing on Your Home Router

2011/12/13 7:30 pm
2011/12/13 9:00 pm

While it is fun to learn how to hack, sometimes it's tough to practice your skills without breaking any laws. It turns out if you have any consumer devices on your local network, you already have everything you need to practice penetration testing. In this talk I will discuss my experience with the Dlink DIR-685 Wireless N router and how with just a few basic skills I was able to find multiple exploits, including one that gave me root, all through the web interface. As I describe the attacks I'll demonstrate the exploits with a live demo.

2011/05/10 7:30 pm
2011/05/10 9:00 pm

What would you do if you had to securely decommission a remote server without remote console or power access? How would you securely erase all the hard drives over an ssh session and halt the machine when you are logged into the machine itself? Kyle has recently done just this and in this (mostly live demo) talk, Kyle will walk you through the process of how to securely erase your server remotely.
