A few things for this week. Firstly we have our first competition of the year coming up this Thursday. The competition name is CSAW, hosted by NYU Poly and will run from Thursday - Sunday.
We will be meeting in person for the first leg of the competition in room A208 (same as last time) at 7:30pm this Thursday. There will be a brief overview before the competition ~15 minutes so try to show up on-time. 2 of our officers, Thomas and Keegan will be giving a intro to Linux/Hacking presentation in A208 for those of you who need it before you start the competition. Those ready to compete right away will move to a new location.
We are taking a poll for meeting topics that you guys would be the most interested in learning about. This poll can be found here: http://strawpoll.me/448083
I know many of you are new to Linux, so we have included a great tutorial for you guys to get started: http://linuxcommand.org/
See you all Thursday,
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
We’ll be having our next meeting this Thursday at 7:30PM in Osborne/Science & Engineering A210. A rudimentary, semi-unhelpful, and fruitless map is located here. The room is on the ground floor, take right through the sliding double doors, go down the hallway and take another right.
We’ll be working on getting everyone introduced to the security world and involved right away. I have constructed a fully interactive presentation/exercise. You will not have access to the training network until the night of the meeting, but the slides are available here.
Please bring a working laptop, preferably running Linux or running a Linux VM. It is very boring watching everyone have fun, trust me and if you aren’t behind the keyboard you’re not learning. Bring your gear please.
If you have any questions on how to install a Linux VM here’s an example that will work with Ubuntu on Windows 7: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WiiswmOH1Q
I want to thank everyone who attended our first Fall Semester meeting and club orientation tonight. We had a lot of interest and are very excited to work with you all! Weekly e-mail will be sent out with important information including dates/times for meetings and events so please keep an eye on your inbox! If you ever have any questions whether it be for hacking, programming, security or anything in general feel free to post a topic to the google group. You can also send myself or another officer an e-mail and we would be glad to help out!
We cannot believe we filled all of Engineering room 101! Absolutely phenomenal turnout and we look forward to our next meeting Thursday, Osborne/Science & Engineering Room A210 at 7:30PM. For those who haven’t already, register for the team at https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/PeakChaos/join
As always, happy hacking
