We had a brief discussion about hackerspaces. Chris Gerling is looking into starting a hackerspace in the Richmond, VA area.
Next we cover the details about SUMO LINUX 2.0 with our guest Marcus Carey.
SUMO LINUX 2.0
– Based on a stable version of Debian so we can update with Debian packages and Unbuntu Packages.
-Windows response tools will be added.
-Build a wiki with detailed documentation of all the tools included to make it easy for a newbie to get started.
-No plans for multi-boot.
-Distributed out via Bit Torrent.
-Memory analysis and RAM dumping. Cheap USB sticks have really helped with this. The analysis is also proving to be a big help in forensics.
-Will be coordinating the project on the Securabit forums (http://forums.securabit.com/index.php?showforum=9)
-User feedback will help us make it better for everyone.
-Post in the forum if you are interested in helping out.
Other News Items
-Homebrew patches for zero days in the enterprise.
-Cell phones and international roaming charges at the border.
-What hardware tools should you have in a forensic toolkit?
