January 19, 2016, meetup wrap-up

We had a really good meeting to kick off 2016. We defined some goals for 2016 including, but not limited to:

  • malware analysis and reverse engineering
  • Wireless hacking

Then Josh gave a presentation on OSINT, using me as the target. Here are some of the resources he used:

These are some of the links to the facebook OSINT techniques from Michael Bazzell's website I mentioned in my talk last night.
This is a 75 minute demo where he teaches you the basics of OSINT on facebook

This is the custom facebook search link that includes the PIPL/API search that I've found usually yields some decent information on most targets:

Finally, we got into the SANS Holiday Hack Challenge. We had some connection issues and didn't get very far, but we definitely had some fun.

I figured out how hard it is to get scapy on Windows 10.

Here's the recording of our meetup.

September 15, 2015, meetup wrap-up - frameworks for securing things

We had an excellent meeting this month. About 14 people showed up and participated. We had a lot to talk about with BSides Augusta happening Saturday, the CTF planning for next month, and the usual infosec news. After that, Ralph Collum gave us an excellent talk on security frameworks and how to choose the best one. We finished with some videos from J4vv4d.

Next months meetup will be slightly different. We're planning to do two days. We'll meet our usual Tuesday, October 13, 2015, but we're also going to meet the following Saturday, October 17, 2015, for some capture the flag (CTF) fun. Details to come soon.
