  • errbufferoverfl: Kali Linux

Kali Linux

Come together in ritual to learn about KALI LINUX! A Debian based Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking distribution, with over 600 pre-installed packages. In this talk errbufferoverfl will cover as many things as she can fit into an hour, from port scanning, to web application hacking to exploit pewpewpewing. We'll be looking at some of the more popular tools available within the distribution including nmap, Burp Suite Community Edition, John the Ripper and many others. She will also discuss the phases we go through when conducting a security assessment from recon to exploitation and where these tools can be leveraged. Tonight, for one night only no server, or web application is sacred*.

* But seriously please get explicit permission from the server owner before pewpewpewing things that are not owned or operated by you.

errbufferoverfl was born of a moon-less night in an undisclosed location along the cyber ley lines. For the past three years errbufferoverfl has been using the mystical powers handed down for generations to write Python code and consult on security dark arts. She specialises in divination via web applications and calling upon the clouds to tell their dark secrets. She has strong opinions about client-side validation and how CSRF tokens should be handled. When she isn't testing web applications, writing code and zines you can find her in her garden tending to her poisonous plants and terrariums. Like all good cyber witches if unattended too long she will start divination by your laptop.

The talk will be followed by a discussion forum.

Many of us like to go for dinner nearby after the meeting, typically at Brunetti's or Trotters Bistro in Lygon St.  Please let us know if you'd like to join us!

Linux Users of Victoria is a subcommittee of Linux Australia.
