Hello hackers!

We are happy to announce a SECOND meeting this March – that’s two for the price of none!

Josh More, frequent speaker and resident intern wrangler will be wrangling interns this month. He has invited them to meet with DC612 folk and learn what it is like to work in security. It will be a pretty relaxed session, general Q&A sort of thing, open mic. Feel free to join us and discuss the day-to-day of working in the security field, whether you are on the blue team, the red team, the orange team, Team Edward, Ravenclaw, Next Generation, or even emacs.

See you all there!

Important Update! The location has changed but the date remains the same from our last announcement (it is the first Thursday this month). Our usual spot is closed for renovations, so we will be returning to our old stomping grounds at Elsie’s! We won’t be in the front room near the entrance it sounds like, but rather in the back room in the dining area. Ask staff if you need directions. There is usually plenty of free parking, and the side road has curbside parking as well.

Where:  Elsie’s Dining – 729 Marshall St. NE, Mpls.

When: Thursday March 7th, 6PM

Hey Hacker Fam

Our February Meeting is rolling up to you a week early – thanks hallmark holiday 🙁

On tap this month we have a topic that we can all relate to.

This week at DC612 we’re talking DOCUMENTATION! and what its really good for? Or more importantly, how do we feel about it?

(Most people) Don’t like it

(Most people) Don’t like to write it

(Most people) Don’t like to sift through it

Then again (Most people) Really don’t like when it’s not there

Then again (Most people) Really don’t like it when it’s there and it’s wrong

This Thursday, come on out for our speaker Eric.  His talk will cover a history of documentation, reflections on why we document and ways we can do it better.

Hope to see all you there!

Hello hackers, and welcome to 2019!

To start the year off we will be hearing from @b_radmn about an OS command injection vulnerability he found in the Steam game client, affecting pretty much all Steam games on Windows. The talk will focus on the process of discovery, weaponization, and paths to exploitation. Time permitting he may get into the process of reporting the vulnerability.

See you all there!

Hello hackers!

Who has two thumbs, a sore throat, a newborn to take care of, and very little time to post details about this month’s meeting?

This guy.

Josh More will be presenting this month. It’s his “job talk” which I assume has to do with his book, Breaking into Information Security.  If that is the case, I would definitely recommend showing up if you are interested in starting (or advancing) your infosec career.  And if that is not the case, show up anyway!
