black hat video archive

I think a few of these videos have been posted here before, but I just ran across the official Black Hat Video Archive. Some really good stuff is there, I hope 2006 will be posted soon.

Milpitas has wireless (free)

People living near Milpitas should be getting free wireless during a test run of the the earthlink wireless setup. Have fun!

Zone-H Defaced

Zone-H, a host of the largest website defacement archive, got defaced yesterday, December 21st. The break-in itself is an example of a multi-stage attack utilizing attack vectors ranging from social engineering and XSS vulnerability in Hotmail to remote file-inclusion flaw in Zone-H’s content management system. The end result is this:
zone-h.
Important lessons should be learned from this hack, one is that human factor still is the weakest link in the security chain as well as an existence of a promising ground for research (abuse) in Javascript, AJAX, and the like technologies.

Transbay wi-fi link day

Here’s the schedule for MRL this Friday. Most of it is in preparation for the transbay wi-fi connection we’re going to attempt on Saturday Dec 16th. If you’re interested in helping, you know of anyone that has done this already, or know of good locations to try it from, let us know.


                Fellow Hackers, Slackers, and Code-crackers:

        On Friday December 15th at 7pm PST we will be holding our monthly
        official Midnight Research Labs meeting.

        In preparation for our trans-bay wi-fi link connection attempt, we'll
        be watching a video from CCC on establishing long distance wi-fi
        connections.  We'll also finalize the start locations, pick gear and
        teams for each side of the link.  The plan is still to attempt the link
        on the 16th (Saturday), but at this point it looks like a 50/50 chance
        that the weather will cooperate (we'll decide one way or the other
        Friday, and reschedule if necessary).

        We have our bi-quad antennas to finish up as well.  Also making an
        appearance will be some freshly home brewed beer for those interested
        (it will be its debut, so I'm not sure how it turned out yet, :).

        As always, anyone with cool toys, or interesting project ideas, bring
        them along.

        Light refreshments, pizza and beer will be served.

        Agenda:
                Phase 0x0: Bootstrapping
                  - Greetings and welcome
                  - MRL updates and status
                  - MRL projects update
                Phase 0x1: Initialization
                  - CCC long distance wi-fi video
                  - bi-quad antennas
                  - beer tasting
                Phase 0x2: Local exploits
                  - Food
                  - Off topic tools, toys and other shiny things -- If anyone
                    has any interesting to show off or play with, please bring
                    it.
                  - Whatever till whenever -- This is the more social
                    part of the event.  People are invited to stay and
                    hack and have a couple drinks till whenever this
                    phase is no longer self-sustaining, =)

wicrawl in Brazil

If you’re anywhere near São Paulo, Brazil this weekend, you should go out to the GTS-8 conference to hear Luiz Eduardo talk about wicrawl. Luiz said that the conference is usually taped, so maybe we can get a copy sometime for those that can understand Portuguese, :). I think it’s pretty cool that wicrawl will be getting a wider international audience, and MRL wishes Luiz the best of luck for the talk.
