Hey SITers!

This week we will all be installing Ubuntu server in VirtualBox! We will be providing step by step instructions for the installation, so the only things we ask you to bring are:

       * Windows: http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/4.3.6/VirtualBox-4.3.6-91406-Win.exe (Please note this is a direct download.)

       * Linux: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads

Also, just a reminder to join #ufsit on Freenode and come join the conversation! If you have any questions about the above downloads or just want to discuss infosec in general, the IRC is the best place to do it.

Meeting - November 20, 2013 | Movie Night!

Hey SITers!

This Wednesday we will be having more of a social meeting and will be watching WarGames!

WarGames is an older, yet still awesome movie that is about a young man who discovers a back door into a new military computer and decides to play a simple game of “Global Thermonuclear War” that could possibly start World War 3. It’s definitely a must see and a good way to unwind before finals.
