May 19, 2015, meetup wrapup - pwned by the demo-gods

Last Tuesday was our May meetup for 2015. We had planned to dive into the game PwnAdventure3, unfortunately, it was meant to be as we had hardware issues with the server that was supposed to be running the game. Of course, it worked perfectly the week prior. I even completed the first task! We still plan to do PwnAdeventure3 at a future meetup.

The meeting didn't go too waste, however, we discussed several things:

Skycure -

Someone who attended HackMiami sent me this link. Based on "Crowd Wisdom," the map shows wifi networks that might have threats on them. We've got two in the Columbia, SC, area.

Cover VT -

We had a couple guys from Virgina Tech show us this nifty little link, that has their snort data mapped to Google Map API.

MT6D Visual Data Display -

This is a link that's meant to demonstrate one way of mitigating a DDoS attack. Essentially as I understood it, the IP address of a device or application keeps randomly switching, which in essence makes it harder for someone to DDoS an individual target.

Finally, we discussed a few things people would be interested in discussing for future meetups.

Thanks to everyone that came out. We look forward to seeing everyone next month!
