Security BSides is a community-driven framework for building events for and by cyber security community members. The goal is to expand the spectrum of conversation beyond the traditional confines of space and time. It creates opportunities for individuals to both present and participate in an intimate atmosphere that encourages collaboration. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from participants. It is where conversations for the next-big-thing are happening.

Security is top of mind across the entire sphere of IT and the world beyond. Therefore, more people and organizations are interested in the next new thing in security. BSides is the place where these people come to collaborate, learn and share.

With many tech-companies, colleges and universities in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill and surrounding areas, it is also an international center of innovation in the security industry.

Aug 9 2019 – CTF Meeting

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, August 9th 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:

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

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.

4:00 – 6:00 Conference Discussion
6:00 – 8:00 Open discussion at a nearby bar

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.
