Next Meeting

Our 2010-Q4 meeting will be on Wednesday, December 8, from 6PM until 8PM. Zate Berg (@zate) will be giving an updated version of his Hack3rcon 2010 Talk, entitled "Nessus Bridge for Metasploit." A synopsis is below:

Nessus Bridge for Metasploit: Having hundreds of exploits at your fingertips is half the battle, but getting information out of Nessus and into Metasploit where you can verify or exploit some of those findings has been cumbersome in the past. A new Nessus plugin for Metasploit allows you to work directly with your Nessus scan engine over xmlrpc from within the comfort of your Metasploit console. No more tabbing between windows to discover, catalog and exploit hosts. Do it all from within Metasploit and save yourself time.

Zate's bio is below:

Zate dabbles in threat/vulnerability management, appsec and pen testing for a national staffing firm by day and by night learns Ruby and hacks on metasploit/nessus integration. Previously he worked at one of the "big 4" auditing firms doing application security and threat/vulnerability management and prior to that blew things up for the Australian Military.

Please RSVP to the Chapter Leader by Monday, September 20, so that you can be added to the security list.

Meeting Location

We meet quarterly at the Kforce building in Ybor. The address is:

1001 East Palm Ave. Tampa, FL 33605

Park in the Visitor spaces in the main parking lot that is off of East Palm Avenue. You will need to identify yourself at the security desk and ask how to get to Training Room B.
