Meeting - February 20, 2013

Good evening, SIT’ers!

We had a great time competing in the Ghost in the Shellcode CTF this weekend. Thanks to those who participated.. we truly couldn’t have done it without you. Feel free to give a brief account of your experience at this week’s meeting :-)

Oh… and all I’m going to say is… have you kissed a girl “before it catches fire”? Also… this is why we can’t have nice things.

Since we didn’t get to it last week, we’re starting our section on Binary Reversing this week.

Gabriel is going to teach you about some of the tools needed for reversing, with a short demo… and then we’ll have you go hands-on against a couple challenges. If you’re a little more advanced, fear not… we will have at least one bonus challenge.

Things to bring - Laptop running Linux (local install or VM) - IDA Evaluation version (available for Windows/Linux/OSX) https://www.hex-rays.com/products/ida/support/download_demo.shtml or - IDA Free (available for Windows or can be run through Wine) http://out7.hex-rays.com/files/idafree50.exe

[Meeting] 02-13-2013

Good morning, SIT’ers!

This week, we’re going to finish up our first lesson on tools, and then get to the challenge from last week.

This time, we shouldn’t have any “issues” with the server.

After the challenge, we’re going to switch gears, and have a discussion on binary reversing (a big part of the current CTF scene). Gabriel is going to teach you about some of the tools needed for reversing, with a short demo… and then we’ll have you go hands-on against a couple challenges. If you’re a little more advanced, fear not… we will have at least one bonus challenge.

Ghost in the Shellcode CTF If you missed hearing about this, the GitS CTF is this weekend (Feb 15-17th). UFSIT will be competing in the CTF, under the team name Kernel Sanders.

We will be set up in the 1151 McCarty A conference room, with plenty of CAT5 for local participants. Remote participation will be available, for those who need it. SSH keys will be supplied at this week’s SIT meeting.

Food and drinks will be provided for those participating locally.

Good afternoon, SIT’ers!

Tonight, we’ll pick up where we left off two weeks back.

Last time, we showed you how to install VirtualBox and BackTrack.

This week, it’s time to break out the tools! …and some concepts we can use during CTFs.

Some of the tools will include:

  • SSH

  • grep

  • cat

  • less

You will have the opportunity to go hands-on with all of these tools tonight! This will help you practice and understand how convenient they can be when using a Linux-based system. You’ll also get an understanding of how these tools will play a part in the upcoming CTFs.

Stuff to bring

  • Computer

  • VirtualBox

  • BackTrack Linux
