Title: Hacking with Backtrack4 and Metasploit

Time and Place: February 10, 2011, 7pm, at Red Hat HQ
Presenter: Ryan Linn
Link: http://trilug.org/2011-02-10/Backtrack4

When we deploy Linux servers on the Internet, they are exposed to the 
entire world, and they may be vulnerable to attacks. How can we know 
that they are secure?

As part of the security team at SAS, Ryan Linn tests systems against 
vulnerabilities, and he recommends ways to mitigate the risks. The tools 
that he uses are open source, and very sophisticated.

Ryan will introduce us to Backtrack4, the LiveCD with hacking in mind. 
He will show us how to use the tools to scan a network for vulnerable 
machines, test a target machine against a list of known vulnerabilities, 
and how to take control over a machine. PWN3D.

The world-wide Internet - you will never find a more wretched hive of 
scum and villainy. Backtrack4 is a must-have tool for anyone planning to 
put a computer into that environment.
