Meeting - February 12, 2014 | Cracking SSH with Hydra

Hey SITers!

This week, we’ll be going over how to crack ssh passwords with Hydra! Hydra is a very powerful password cracker that allows for dictionary attacks against popular services (in this case the ssh service we covered last week.)

Also, as a heads up, next week we will have John Sawyer from InGuardians (and the founder of UFSIT) coming to our meeting to give a presentation on pen testing so be sure to mark next week’s meeting on your calendars!

Hey SITers!

This week we will be taking a look at some of the cool things we can do with our new Ubuntu server installation and start getting comfortable with the command line. Some of the tools we’ll be taking a look at are:

  • SSH

  • Cron jobs

  • tmux

  • And more!

We’ll also be talking a little bit about Ghost in the Shellcode and some of the challenges we solved over the weekend.

CTF - Ghost in the Shellcode | Friday 1500 - Sunday 1330

SITers,

We’re a little under 24hrs away from the first CTF of the semester - Ghost in the Shellcode <http://ghostintheshellcode.com/> - and I hope you all are ready to hack away!

We will be in our regular meeting location (1151 McCarty Hall A) from 3:00pm on Friday until 1:30pm on Sunday so feel free to drop by at any time to have some fun. All you’ll need to help out is yourself and your laptop!

One thing we stress is the fact that, even if you think you don’t have enough knowledge to help out, you actually do. Every person that has come out in the past has been a huge help and has always learned a ton of useful tips/tricks/skills (I know I have.)

If you want to help set up, show up early and, if you have any questions about the CTF, just ask in the irc (freenode, #ufsit.)

Happy hacking!

Also, make sure to join SIT on GatorConnect <https://ufl.collegiatelink.net/organization/SIT/> if you haven’t already!
