A Series of [un]Fortunate Events
Because, sometimes you win get lucky. Regardless of an organization’s size – anyone can be a target. Its all about the $money$. This session will provide an overview of a notable APT’s methodology, what can be done to protect yourself from such threats and of course, some fun dumpster fireside stories on how both the defenders and the APTs have failed miserably at their efforts (sanitized to protect the guilty), and what they should have done better!

6:00 – 8:00 Open discussion at a nearby bar

 

Where:  150 Fayetteville St #1400, Raleigh, NC 27601

 

CTF Meeting – June 14 2019

To All the Hackers of DC919:
https://www.meetup.com/DefCon919/events/262061475/


Hope this finds you well! Are you trying to up your game for CTF challenge? Can we help?
Knowing the enemy or preparing to pen-test, the hacking challenges represent real-world puzzles every day.

To help with this, DC919 will be hosting a conference call hack session on the 2nd Friday of this month, June 14th from 7-11. Here we hope to hack common vulnerable images, on our own machines.

Each month we’ll announce a new image that will be our target. Prepare by installing VMWare, VBox, or Whatever, download the image and making sure you can ping it before we get started. Loop into Slack if you need help with this.

All skill levels are welcome, but this is a peer-learning event without a leader. Newbs will want to partner with someone experienced. Everyone will work at their own pace and discuss the challenge in Real Time on the call.

Thanks for reading, and considering!

This month we’ll be working on:

Def Con, BSides, Derby, Infosec, Cackalacky. So many conferences, but what can you actually do and how do you get the most out of your experience there?

This month we will focus on conferences, mostly Def Con and BSidesLV conference preparations, but we’ll also discuss BSides RDU, InfoSeCon, and Cackalacky Con. All the logistics and activities available can be overwhelming and leaving you with FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out). We’ll discuss how to make it easier on yourself and plan ahead to get the most out of the conference.

We will start with the usual announcements and a brief overview of conferences. Then a round table discussion, where you are welcome to, but not required to speak. Come with questions or advice for others. We’ll move into open discussion if we run out of conference topics.

5.22.2019 Google Plaintext Passwords

News came out yesterday, May 21, that Google had stored passwords in plaintext.

DC919 received an email notification that 2 users had a password stored in plaintext.  “Google Planned Action: for your security, starting tomorrow Wednesday May 22, 2019 PT we will force a password change unless it has already been changed prior to that time.”

Admin checked the 2 users, they had only basic email access and Last Sign In: “Hasn’t signed in”  The passwords stored were Google’s own auto-generated passwords.  Previous to today, admin had the option to view the auto-generated password for a user after reset.  Today, this is no longer an option.  DC919 always forced the user to change their password on first login.  The 2 users have been suspended and the group members the accounts belonged to have been contacted.

We’re starting earlier to get through more material.

ALL levels of experience are welcome! It helps to have some knowledge of a high-level programming language like C, Python, or Java, but we’ll cover the basics if necessary. You do not have to be a “hacker” to attend.

Software reverse engineering is an incredibly valuable skill to have in your arsenal. From CTF competitions to vulnerability discovery, analysis, and exploitation, it’s often necessary to delve into the low-level inner workings of a software sample to get the job done. Knowing how software operates at a low level will also make you a better developer!

Software RE can be a daunting discipline to pick up for even experienced software and security professionals, simply due to the intimidating breadth of knowledge that can be required just to get started. This workshop aims to outline your foray into RE and focus on the foundational skills needed to learn quickly and be successful. We may even solve some crackmes! You didn’t think you’d get out of this without some hands-on practice, did you?

The examples in this workshop will require a 64-bit Intel Linux system (virtual, Windows with WSL, or native) to run. There is also a Docker image at 3pidemix/reveng with the necessary environment configured to run the examples. Labs and setup instructions can be found here: https://goo.gl/tcyZ3a Please review them prior to the workshop if you plan to participate in the hands-on labs.

Agenda:
3:00 Intro and announcements
3:10 Reverse Engineering Presentation
5:30 Clean-up the room
6:00 Drinking at Carolina Ale House
